Year One Summer Term 2 - Newsletter June 2019



Welcome back to the children’s last and most exciting term in Year One – where has the time gone?


Throughout this term we will be looking back over the year and thinking of all the things we are grateful for during our time in Year 1. We will be reflecting on how much we have grown and developed over the year as well as looking forward to new challenges ahead.


This term we will be going ‘Into the Garden’. The children will be writing their own story of 'The Very Hungry Monster Plant' based on the structure of the well-known story 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' by Eric Carle, as well as being turned into ‘tiny things’ to explore ‘The King of Tiny Thing’ by Jeanne Willis.




We started back this term with an amazing school trip to Mallydams Wood; learning all about mini beasts and plants. During our Maths sessions we will be continuing to solve addition and subtraction, and telling the time. We will also be covering partitioning, division, multiplication and shapes.



During our Learning Journey afternoons, for Design and Technology, we will be making bug hotels for some minibeasts. In Art we will be making ‘tiny things’ art and designing our own ‘monster plant’!


We are also planning to have a fabulous finish with an Ugly Bug Ball at the end of term – details will follow later.


We will continue to send home daily reading homework along with spellings.  Please could you remember to write in the reading record when you have read with your child and please continue to practise phonic words ready for the Phonics Screening that will begin on 10 June 2019.


Finally, please ensure that your child has a labelled PE kit in school and that their trainers/plimsolls still fit them. We are now practising for Sports Day, taking the children outside for PE if the weather is fine and they will not be able to participate without the correct footwear.


Thank you again for your continued support,


Year 1 Team
