We hope you all have had a wonderful Easter break and are ready for another fun filled and exciting term. We will be exploring our topic of Rocking Royals for the entirety of the Summer term, where we will be learning about significant monarchs, medieval castles and a few fun filled stories about the Queen.
Our maths will be using what we have learned so far to problem solve and apply in different contexts. We are also continuing to practice our number bond to 10 and 20, as well as counting in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s. To help the children practice these we will be sending home the log ins for TTrockstars within the first two weeks of term, an exciting programme where children can practice their times tables at home.
In June the children will be doing their phonics screening. We have an exciting new phonics scheme called Monster Phonics! The children are really enjoying this and have great fun with the new monster characters. During the day the children are practicing reading real and alien words to help them get ready for their screening. Please make sure you are reading with your children daily as this will also help with their practice.
We are starting to develop our lovely outside area and will be introducing a reading shed, an outside investigation area and some other exciting additions to enhance the learning of Year 1.
Our P.E sessions are on Monday and Thursday, please make sure your child has their full P.E kit in every day because there may be other times that they will need to change. Also, with the weather improving the children will be having more outdoor sessions, please ensure your children have appropriate footwear for outside.
