Miss Findlay and Mrs Jobin-Barbor
We welcome you all to the Summer term where we are using all the skills we have learnt and applying them in our learning, in preparation for our move to Year 2.
In English this term we will be having daily phonics through ‘Letters and Sounds.’ We will be looking at various books which will fit with our ‘Around the world in 80 days’ theme. We will be recapping the formation of letters, suing the margin, correctly writing ascenders and descenders and remembering our blending and segmenting skills in addition to our use of Common Exception words for reading and writing. We will also be challenging our writing stamina and independence for increased quantity and quality.
Our Maths focus will be place value, multiplication and division and shape. We will also solve problems, including word problems, using our place value skills and addition and subtraction. The children will also have the challenge of increasing their number knowledge up to 100.
Our topic and enquiry question this term is ‘Around the world in 80 days.’ We will be looking at and comparing different countries and where we live. In Science we will be looking at everyday materials, looking at Native American art, Andy Warhol and Paul Klee in Art and in RE we will be learning about other religions including Judaism.
Please do not hesitate to contact the team if you have any questions. We look forward to expanding our knowledge further.
Miss Findlay and Mrs Jobin-Barber
