The Curriculum - SUMMER TERM
Please open the curriculum map (attached below) to see what your child will be learning during the summer term.
In maths, we will move onto shape, fractions and position & direction.
This website is a good introduction to the topic of shape:
Here is a song that may aid children's understanding of fractions:
The children are encouraged to continue to rehearse their times tables and related facts:
The main focus for the term will be growing and plants.
In literacy, we will retell the story of The Secret Garden and we will learn to write instructions for planting seeds.
In science we will learn how plants grow and thrive.
Here are some stories that will enhance the children's understanding of this topic:
(Please supervise your child when using YouTube.)
We will make artwork with plants and we will design a wheelbarrow for a busy gardener.
In RE, we will learn about Judaism and how Jewish people show their love for God. We will also find out how Christians represent the Holy Spirit in symbols.
We are always happy to have a chat before or after school.
You can also email us:
The children currently have 1 PE lesson per week - every Thursday. THIS WILL BE AN OUTDOOR LESSON.
On PE days, children should come to school in:
>black or blue shorts/ leggings/ jogging pants
>a white tshirt
>a sweatshirt/ hoodie
Long hair should be tied back and earrings should be removed if possible.
Please prioritise listening to your child read their banded reading book at least four times a week. Children also benefit greatly from listening to adults and older children read stories to them, so snuggle up and enjoy books together. These videos from the Open University give top tips on how to share books with your child:
Please help your child to rehearse their target number facts. They can also rehearse their multiplication facts on Times Tables Rock Stars.
Spelling and Phonics
You can find below a list of 'common exception' words for Years 1 and 2. These are words that the children may not be able to use their phonic knowledge to spell. They are words that tend to crop up regularly when they are writing and so it is helpful if the children learn how to spell them. We have attached below some ideas for practising spellings with your child.
