English Curriculum for the Spring Term. As Resilient Readers, we will be sharing a
variety of texts about ‘Food’. We will
look at simple recipes. As Writers, we
will make our own instructional texts about different types of food. After half term, we will be focussing on
‘Stories from other Cultures’. We will
develop our storytelling skills using Pie Corbett’s words and actions. We will
continue to learn to read and write our sounds.
Please help your child to practise these by using the phoneme mat in the
back of their Reading Record and continue to practise the words in their Word
Pouch. A Library Book and Reading Book
will be sent home weekly. Weekly Spellings,
Maths and English homework challenges will continue. Your
help and support with reading and spelling is invaluable. Our
English curriculum SFA (Success for All) will continue. This skills-based curriculum helps to develop
the children’s reading and comprehension skills, basic grammar, phonics and spelling,
and encourages co-operative learning.

Don’t forget to complete
the Reading Challenge every week! We
challenge you to read for five minutes, five times a week at home! Come on Year One! We haven’t topped the leader board yet!s. Don't forget to practice your word pouches regularly!

Maths Curriculum for the Spring Term. Read,
write and order numbers up to 20 and beyond. As part of our Inspire Maths
scheme, we will continue to practise correct number formation, and solve
addition and subtraction problems involving numbers up to 20 and beyond. Problems will be represented with numbers and
symbols (+, - and =). We’ll investigate
2D/3D shapes and their properties, and practise our measuring skills by
comparing different lengths and measuring with non-standard units of
measure. Please help your child to learn
the addition and subtraction ‘Learn-Its’ for this term. We will continue to carry out ‘BMBT’ &
CLIC challenges, trying to improve our score each week! You may like to help
your child to practise the number facts at home too! Don’t forget to practise your number pouch

Spelling challenges will be sent home weekly. You might like to practice these words with your child so that they are confident during their spelling challenge. We will also practice these words regularly in school too. IT IS NOT ESSENTIAL THAT THEY GET THEM ALL CORRECT ALL THE TIME. IT IS MORE IMPORTANT THAT YOUR CHILD CAN APPLY THESE SPELLING RULES TO THEIR WRITING ALL THE TIME. We need to learn to spell all the Year 1 Common Exception Words (CEWs) by the end of the summer term. These words will be displayed in our classrooms and removed once we have all learnt them all by heart. Termly updates will be sent home so you can see how your child is progressing.
