Year One


Dear Parents,

We hope you have all had an enjoyable and restful Easter break and that you are looking forward to the busy summer term ahead.

We will be revisiting a lot of familiar concepts this term to consolidate and build upon your child’s learning as well as taking on plenty of new and exciting challenges and activities.

Our religious topics for this term are resurrection and miracles.

In Maths, we will be introducing multiplication and division by counting in 2s, 5s and 10s. The children will be sharing and grouping numbers into equal groups. We will also be looking at fractions and how we split objects and numbers into half and quarters.

In English there will be an emphasis on the children becoming more confident with the skills they have been introduced to, as well as supporting them with spellings and grammar to become imaginative and creative writers. As you are aware, the Phonics Screening Check will take place later in the summer term. We will be sending home extra resources to support your children with their blending and segmenting skills.

Life in the city will be the focus of our learning in Geography. In Science we will take a look at Materials and Plants. The Resurrection, along with other faiths, will be explored in R.E.

P.E. will be on Fridays during the summer term but please ensure your child has their P.E. kit with them in school every day, as additional opportunities for P.E. can and do arise. Please clearly label every item of clothing, including socks and plimsolls!

Thank you for supporting your child in becoming a confident and enthusiastic reader by reading with them every day. Reading books are changed on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Please note that reading books and red reading record books should always be kept in your child’s book bag – the adults in our classroom read with the children at least once a week. Please be reminded that you too must sign the red reading record books when you share a book with your child at least three times a week.

Homework will continue to be sent out on Friday to be returned on Tuesday. Our spelling will be on Fridays.

Many thanks for your continued support.
