We can do it.






English Curriculum for the Summer Term. As Readers, we will be exploring a variety of texts about ‘The Seaside’. We will find information in non-fiction books, learning how to use the contents & index pages. As Writers, we will use ‘story telling’ language & actions to retell and create our own stories, using ‘story bags’. Seaside Poems will be discussed and we will write our own poems. We will continue to learn to read and write our sounds. Your child will continue to bring home a Library Book and Reading Book weekly. Your help and support with reading is invaluable. Remember to ask them lots of questions about the books they read too! Weekly Maths and English homework challenges will continue, as well as weekly spellings. 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, basic grammar, phonics and spelling, and encourages co-operative learning. We will use Resilient Reader and Legends of Literacy strategies to improve our reading and grammar skills. Don’t forget to complete the Reading Challenge every week! We challenge you to read for 5 minutes, 5 times a week at home! Come on Year One! We haven’t topped the leader board yet!

Maths Curriculum for the Summer Term. We will continue to follow our exciting ‘Inspire Maths Curriculum’. As Mathematicians, we will read, write and order numbers up to 100 and beyond. We will practise solving addition and subtraction problems involving numbers up to 20 and beyond and represent our work with numbers, pictures and symbols. We will practise adding and subtracting on a number line. We will practise telling the time, recognising o’clock and half past. We will investigate and compare different masses and capacities. Please help your child to learn the remaining addition ‘Learn-Its’ for this term so that they can continue to beat their ‘Big Maths, Beat That’ score! We will continue to send home CLIC challenges to improve calculation skills. DON’T FORGET TO KEEP PRACTISING YOUR NUMBER POUCH AT HOME TOO

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.
