Welcome back to the final half term in Year 1!
Saturday 2nd June | 5 comments
We have been busy planning another exciting half term. We have new role play areas – ‘Science Labs!‘ We also have seaside areas and rock pools to explore.
In literacy we will begin with a week of reading, writing and performing poetry about summer and the seaside. We will then read Billy’s Bucket and the Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch and look at settings. Our design and technology lessons are linked to literacy and we will be designing and making our own sandwiches and writing instructions about how to make them.
In maths we will continue to develop our addition, subtraction, multiplication and division skills. We will also be doing lots of practical maths based on time and money.
We will be looking at lots of maps, globes and atlases in our geography lessons. The children will also learn about human and physical features, aerial maps, keys and how to use a compass. They will also look at world maps and name the oceans and continents. Can your child already name any of them?
We will be learning about Grace Darling in our history lessons. We will hopefully have a visit from the RNLI who will talk about their work and water safety.
We also have our trip to Blackhill Woods and sports day to look forward to.
Phew!! Another action packed half term in Year 1.
We are looking forward to seeing you all on Monday.
