Summer Term 1    Newsletter       Class 1/2

 

I would like to welcome you back after our Easter term break.

 

The Patch is now looking much better. We also have some new planters that the children have planted up with some vegetables. I am hoping we will be able to use the outside area much more this term.

Please do not sit on the flower bed or let young children pick the flowers.

 

This terms theme is ‘Animals Around the World.’ Through this theme, the children will learn all about the 7 continents and about all different kinds of animals that live in them.

Maths – This term the children will be split between Mrs Perry, Mrs Tressler and myself. This is to ensure the Y1 and the Y2 children are taught the correct curriculum for their year group. The children will be learning about place value and mental and written methods of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We will also be working on fractions, shape and time.  

 

English –  As before, the children will all be split into different groups for their English sessions. Y1 children will be focusing on phonics and writing simple sentences. Y2 children will be doing lots of different types of writing and will also focus more on reading compression.

 

Science – This half term the children's topic will be 'All living things'. The children will be classifying animals, learning about food chains and habitats. They will be able to recognise a range of animals and talk about their habitat, diet ad appearance.

 

RE - The children will be learning about special books. We will look at the Bible, the Torah and the Qur'an.

 

PSHE: This half term we will be looking at the life of a child refugee and also looking at children's lives in Africa. We will also be looking at Freedom.

Reading: Your child will be reading daily in class through different subjects. However, we will try to listen to your child read as much as we can.  Please ensure you listen to your child read as often as possible during the week and note it in their reading record. The more they read the bigger advantage they will have. It is very important for your child's development to read as much as possible Please ensure your child brings their reading book into school every day.

 

Spellings: Your child will come home with a new list of spellings on a Monday which they need to practise each day.  Please encourage your child to read, sound out and write the words carefully. All children will be tested on the Friday. During KS1 SATS week there will be no spellings.

 

Maths Homework: All children, on a Monday,  will have a sheet to fill in for their maths homework. They will start with number bonds to 10 and then 20. The children will then move to their 10, 2 and 5 times tables... All homework will be due in on a Friday and failure to bring in homework will result in the children doing it in their own time.

 

PE is a core subject and every child is expected to take part in these lessons.  Our lessons will take place on a Wednesday and Friday. Please ensure your child has their PE kit: black or navy shorts, plain white or blue school t-shirt and plimsolls in school for these days and that earrings have been removed. (We are not allowed to remove them.)
