Year One - Summer Term 1 Newsletter

Welcome back –can you believe that it is the summer term already?!! The children have comeback to school beautifully and are excited to get stuck into learning lots of new things.

Our topic this term will be ‘Wonderful Nature’. The focus will be nature in our gardens, parks, ponds. We will be looking closely at flowers and growing our own plants from seeds, learning about what they need to become strong and healthy. In our Science lessons, we will be observing, identifying and classifying plants and mini beasts. We will also be looking at life cycles of frogs.

In Maths we are going to be learning all about fractions of shape, as well as fractions of number. We will be learning about 1 Whole, ½, and ¼.  Once we are confident with fraction, we are going to be learning to tell the time on a clock face. We will learn to read o’clock, and ½ past each hour. To keep things fresh in our minds, we will also keep refreshing our brains with all our previous learning of addition, subtraction and place value.

The children have been thoroughly enjoying using the Purple Mash online learning platform in school last term to learn all about coding. We will be carrying on with this, this term and incorporating ‘debugging’ too. Don’t forget you can access Purple Mash at home too. Each child has their own username and password stuck into the front of their reading record.

 Please can you check that all P.E kits and school clothes have your child’s name in them. Also, can you please check that your child has a full P.E kit in school at all times. The children have grown! Their plimsolls/trainers may now be a little tight.

Finally, could we please remind you help your child practise their spellings, ready for a test on Thursdays. The more they practise, the more they remember and use these new words in their everyday writing.

Thankyou for all your hard work and support in helping your children at home.

 Year One Team.
