Year 1 - Squirrels and Frogs
Summer Term 2021
Welcome back! We trust you all had lots of Easter fun and are looking forward to a new term together!
As we return to school this term, we will be continuing the super work you have been doing at home. The children are already working in groups according to their reading level and we will be assessing the children continuously, so that they can move through the groups as they progress.
We will send home Book Bag Books or Sounds activities matched to the storybooks children read in school and will be used for extra practice at home. They include many of the same reading activities that we use in class and include parent guidance
Please view the videos below for more information about the Read, Write, Inc programme.
In Maths, we are looking at place value with numbers to 50 as well as multiplying and dividing numbers.
We will also be consolidating our knowledge on fractions. Towards the end of the term, we will be looking at place value to 100.
We are following a Mastery approach when teaching Maths. This focuses on deepening the children’s understanding of mathematical concepts by using concrete, pictorial and numerical resources.
History – The Great Fire of London.
R.E – Buddhism.
Computing – Mouse & Keyboard skills.
Children will learn about Materials this term. They will focus on identifying the material of different objects as well as use a range of materials to construct a model of a house to link with the Great Fire of London!
As the weather improves, we will be going outside during some lessons so please ensure the children have tracksuit bottoms and tops.
Frogs: Monday and Tuesday
Squirrels: Tuesday and Thursday
Thank you for all your continued support,
The Year 1 Team
