Welcome back after what we hope was a lovely Easter break.
For the whole of this term our main topic is “I do like to be beside the seaside!” We will learn all about where the seaside can be found as well as the human and physical geographical features of coastal locations. We will also compare the differences between the seaside now and in the past.
In Literacy, we will be writing informal letters to tell our friend Abdul the Genie all about what we learned about Kenya. We will then move on to reading the fantastic story of The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch and the children will write their own creative pieces based around this.
The children will also write their own Spring poems.
In Maths Year 1 will be covering:
- Place value
- Addition and subtraction
- Key skills
In Science, the children will continue to develop their knowledge of seasonal change with a focus on Spring.
We will then begin to investigate different types of plants, their parts and what they need to grow.
In Art, the children will be experimenting with various painting and drawing techniques within our seaside theme.
Reading books and records
There are several times during the week when your child is asked for their reading book and/or record. This includes new spellings, book change and adults reading 1:1 with them. Please ensure that your child remembers to bring their book and record to school every day.
If you have any problems, concerns or questions please do not hesitate to see one of us before school at 8:55am or after school at 3.30pm.
