Welcome back to the final half term in Year 1!
Sunday 6th June | No comments yet
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.
We will begin with a week of reading, writing and performing poetry about the seaside. We will then move onto reading Billy’s Bucket and the Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch and do lots of fun tasks based on these two books.
Our maths this half term will look at fractions – finding a half and a quarter of a shape, object and quantity. Place value where we will count forwards and backwards within 100, compare, order and partition numbers and also calculate one more/less than a given number. Money which we will learn about the value of coins and count them (counting in 2s, 5s and 10s will help with this). At the end of the summer term we will learn to tell the time to the hour and half past, write and compare time. So a busy last half term!
Design and Technology
Our design and technology lessons are linked to English and we will be designing and making our own sandwiches and writing instructions about how to make them.
The children will be looking at maps, atlases and globes and finding out about where they live and other parts of the World. In preparation for this work please can you talk to your child about places they have visited either in this country or abroad. Can they find it on a map? How did they travel there? Was it a hot or cold country? Was it a town, city, seaside or countryside? We will also be using the app ‘Google Earth’ to explore the World. Please can you help your child learn their home address and postcode.
We will be learning about what seaside holidays were like in the past. We will also be learning about Grace Darling in our history lessons.
Rodley Nature Reserve and Animal Workshop
We are looking forward to our visits to Rodley Nature Reserve and our animal workshop with Sam’s Safari. Please make sure that you return the trip consent forms and pay for the workshop on ParentPay.
Phew!! Another action packed half term in Year 1.
We are looking forward to seeing you all on Tuesday.
