Welcome to Class 1

Summer Term

Our theme this half term is

'Mini-beasts'

 

Last half term we asked the children what they are interested in and what they would like our topic to be for the next half term. We all decided on Mini-beasts. We will begin with a mini-beast hunt and look at how they grow, what they eat and where they live; paying particular attention to caterpillars and our link text ‘The Hungry caterpillar’. We will be growing and preparing and tasting a range of vegetables through the use of another text ‘The Enormous Turnip’ and ‘Oliver’s Vegetables’

 

Maths

 

We will be focusing on problem solving and a range of activities to allow children to apply their knowledge of number. We are starting with estimation; asking children to look at a group of objects, make sensible guesses and

counting to check to how many there are. We will be counting in 2s, 5s and 10s to count objects and we will apply this to solve simple problems.

 

Read Write Inc

 

We continue with daily Phonics sessions. Our aim this half term is to ensure children can confidently read words containing Set 2 Sounds e.g green, car and shout. Children will also be encouraged to ‘Fred in their head’ improving the pace of their reading. The children’s independence is developing all

the time and they are more willing to have a go at writing words alone.

Please continue to encourage writing simple sentences at home.

 

A reminder that a voluntary contribution of £1.00 per week for our Reception Fund is really appreciated. This half term is 5 weeks. This will be a big help in buying our seeds and plants.  A big thank you to everyone who has donated. J
