Welcome to the Year One Page
Summer Term 2022
Staff: Miss Morgan (Class Teacher & Science Lead)
Mrs McLaughlan (Teaching Assistant)
This term our topic will be ‘5,4,3,2,1...BLAST OFF!’.
We will learn how to read ‘green words’ containing Set 1, 2 and 3 Sounds and practise reading ‘red words’ (common exception words). There are lots of free resources to support your child’s learning on the Oxford Owl website: https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/reading/reading-schemes-oxford-levels/read-write-inc-phonics-guide/
and also free games on: https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/resources
We will share and discuss a range of high-quality texts that are linked to our topic to develop our love of reading and writing. We will learn to compose sentences orally and record our ideas in writing for a range of purposes.
We will develop our understanding of place value up to 100 and use different methods and equipment to add and subtract numbers up to 20. We will begin to make arrays by making equal groups and building them up in columns or rows. We will double and halve numbers up to 20 and find a half and a quarter of a set of objects and shapes. We will learn to recognise coins and notes and combine coins to make totals.
In school we use a Rekenrek to help us in our NCETM Maths sessions. A Rekenrek is an arithmetic frame designed to help visualise addition and subtraction strategies. An interactive version is available by following this link: https://apps.mathlearningcenter.org/number-rack/
This term we will study the three themes of:
- Holidays and Holydays-Pentecost: feast of the Holy Spirit
- Being sorry- God helps us to choose well
- Neighbours- Neighbours share God’s world
PE is every Monday morning. Please ensure that your child wears their PE kit to school (white t-shirt, blue or black shorts/joggers/leggings, school sweatshirt/cardigan and pumps/trainers).They will remain in their PE kits all day.
Please read with your child at home every day and sign their Home School Communication Book. A list of common exception words can also be found inside their Home School Communication Book. Your child needs to recognise these words on sight and not ‘Fred talk’.
Each week, the children will learn a new spelling rule which can be found in their Silver Learning Log and their Home School Communication Book. We will have a spelling check every Friday. Please help your child to practise writing their spellings and using the words to write sentences.
