The expectation continues this term for the children to read five times a week which is vital in supporting your child to develop reading skills and fluency as well as practising their phonic knowledge to decode words and spot sounds they have learnt. Please ensure you sign their reading diary when your child has read as they will be checked throughout the week.
Don't forget you also have lots of great books to read on your Bug Club page.
During the first half of the Summer Term we will be looking at Traditional Tales and introducing our new text to the children through an experience day. I wonder who has visited the Forest School area and left their belongings; including a red cloak, a wicker basket, some juicy apples and there are also some very large footprints. We are all very excited to find out who came to visit. Do you think you know?
In the Summer Term of Year 1 we will be focusing on embedding our addition and subtraction skills and introducing multiplication and division. We will continue to practise counting in 2s, 5s and 10s then will investigate making equal groups, adding equal groups and representing calculations using arrays.
We do basic skills lessons on a daily basis and these are focused on quick recall of number facts including number bonds to 10.
This term we will be observing seasonal change and the weather associated with each season.
We will then be exploring different common animals including; fish, birds, mammals, amphibians and reptiles and identifying which animals are carnivores, omnivores and herbivores.
P.E. and Swimming
1F will be swimming on Wednesday during the Summer Term.
Children can wear their P.E. kits into school on a Wednesday and a Thursday each week. Kits consist of black shorts, white t-shirts (with or without the school logo) and trainers. For outdoors, in the winter, plain black or grey jogging trousers and fleece top.
We are very fortunate to have access to a swimming pool at Trinity, and in Year 1 we feel that it is very important that children take advantage of this resource. Each class will swim for a whole half term to allow for longer swimming sessions. Each class will split into 2 groups and swim every week for one half term during PPA sessions. It is very important, therefore, that the children remember to bring their swimming kits to every session. All children must have an appropriate swimming kit and swimming hat. If, for any reason, your child is unable to take part in P.E. or swimming, a signed letter must be provided.
