We have enjoyed the books we have read so far this year. In the Summer Term we will start by looking at the book, How To Find Gold.
We will be writing using lots of different genres including, a diary, descriptive writing and writing in role.
We are going to continue learning phase 5 part 2, learning new tricky words. We will also be continuing to revise part 1 and consolidating our knowledge of the tricky words. Ensuring we are able to spell these correctly.
This term we will be focusing on new strategies to support children with their addition and subtraction skills, numbers to 100, mass, money, as well as consolidating earlier learning ensuring we are ready for Year 2.
Materials - In this unit children will describe the physical properties of a variety of everyday materials. They will compare and group together a variety of everyday materials on the basis of their simple properties. They will describe the properties of different materials, for example wood, metal, plastic, rubber, fur, towelling, nylon, wool, sponge, cotton wool, paper, card, brick, ceramics and rock.
We will also be looking at the changes in seasons - Summer
Our new topic 'Oh I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside!' will focus on developing the children's Geography skills. Children will be naming and locating the 7 continents and 5 oceans of the world on maps and in atlases. They will also be looking in detail at human and physical coastal features with a closer study on Blackpool. The children will be looking at the work of local artist Helen Bradley and recreating some of their own pictures in a similar style.
This half term the children will be studying the story of Joseph from the Old Testament. They will explore the story in detail about Joseph's dreams, his time as a prisoner, his relationship with his brothers, his time as a ruler and of course his wonderful coat of many colours.
This term P.E. will be on a Thursday with our sports coaches. Please send your child in on a Thursday wearing a PE kit that is weather appropriate. We will be doing gymnastics this term.
We will also have P.E. on a Friday in school. Please also wear PE kits on Friday as well.
Long hair must be tied back and earrings need to be removed/covered with tape.
Reading books will be going home on a Friday. It is really important to read these with your child and ask questions about the book too. Please ensure that you bring the book back in on a Friday so that it can be changed ready for the weekend.
