Welcome to Year 1

Summer Term 2022

Class 1 – Year 1

Dear Parents,

The children have come back to school with such a positive attitude ready to learn!

English:

This term the children are continuing to focus on a range of fiction and non-fiction texts from the Babcock: Texts that Teach sequence. Throughout each teaching sequence we will continue to build upon the children’s existing skills and help them to improve their punctuation, sentence structure and letter formation. The children have been reading the book ‘Don’t Spill the Milk’, learning the text and writing lots of sentences. They will then create their own story using their imagination.   Four days a week we will hold practise group reading sessions. These sessions allow the children to explore a variety of texts and ask questions about what they are reading. We will continue to provide the children with new phonics sounds and keywords on a weekly basis so please ensure that your child practices them every evening-remember little and often is key.

Maths:

This term we will be focusing on the units ‘Multiplication and Division’ and ‘Number’ and ‘Measurements’.  In these units, the children will be consolidating their knowledge and understanding of number, repeated addition, counting in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s and making arrays.

The reception children will be consolidating their understanding of counting beyond 20, learning the composition of number and how to make 100.

We will also be listening to stories linked with our topic,  making all sorts of creative things linked to our topic.

Forest School

Reception children will continue their weekly sessions in the forest with Mrs Moore, as the weather warms up please ensure your child wears suitable clothes, but we do ask that the children wear clothes that keep their legs covered up!

Just some reminders….

We always do PE on a Friday afternoon. Please make sure your child wears their PE kit to school on that day every week.

Snack: Your child is encouraged to have a small snack during morning break. Fruit snacks are provided at school however if your child wishes to bring a snack from home please label any plastic containers with your child’s name. Thank you.

Your child will be assigned a reading book each week on Big Cat Collins which is linked to the book we are reading in school, please read this book and comment and sign when you have read with your child in their yellow reading record book.

Phonics Sound

Every week we learn new sounds in our phonics sessions and consolidate the ones we already know. Any questions about the sound a letter makes, please ask! Please don’t hesitate to ask or write in your child’s yellow reading dairy if you have any questions.
