Summer 2 term Newsletter Mr. Middleton
Welcome back to our final term! I can’t quite believe how fast the year has gone. Our topic for this term is ‘The Seaside’ Here we’ll look at important questions like, ‘What is a seaside?’, ‘Where might I find the seaside?’ ‘What was the seaside like in the past?’ And find answers. We’ll compare where we live to the seaside and also compare two coastal towns which are quite different! We will also have the thrill of a trip to the seaside at Hunstanton on Tuesday 2nd July. We also have sports days and awards ceremonies as we celebrate this past year.
Maths –This term the children will continue to learn their number bonds to 10, 20 and 100 and also to count in 2’s 5’s and 10’s. We will be focusing on place value, how many tens and ones make a number, multiplication and division and a real emphasis on adding and subtracting using a numberline. We’ll recap most of what’s been learnt through the year including shape, measure and will also visit time.
English – In English, we will continue to focus on our phonics at the correct level for us as we build up to the phonics screening check. After this, we will all return to our class for whole-class English lessons. We will look at the Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch and a poem called ‘The Magic Box.’
PSHE- This term we will be looking at how to keep ourselves safe and how to be a good citizen. This will include e-safety, rules for living well, healthy eating and more.
PE is a core subject and every child is expected to take part in these lessons. Our lessons will take place on a Monday and Thursday(outside weather permitting) 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.)
Weekly spellings are sent home, these consist of 5 words which use Read Write Inc. sounds and 5 from the year 1 (and 2) common exception word list. In addition, children are tested on number bonds weekly and we also send home an arithmetic test every week too. Please support your child with this and please continue to hear your child read and discuss the books they are reading.
Remember "If you can read, you can do anything!"
If you have any queries or concerns about your child’s school life, please don’t hesitate to speak to me.
