This is a quick overview of our learning for the next few weeks;



Our Topic for this half term is Seaside

Thank you to all the children who have brought in items for our Seaside Shop role play area.



If you have any questions, thoughts or resources you would like to share please do come in and see us.

Thank you for your continued support.



Over the next few weeks we will be learning about Traditional Stories. To begin with we will be focusing on 'The House That Jack Built' and 'Dragon Dinosaur' (A traditional Chinese story)

 You will notice that we have sent home a butterfly sheet of words in your child's target word booklet. These are Year one common exception words which your child needs to be able to read and spell by the end of year one. 






Our Maths learning over the next few weeks will focus on Money. The children need to recognise and know the value of different denominations of coins and notes. They will be solving one step problems involving money, paying and giving change within 20p.

They will also compare, describe and solve practical problems involving mass/weight, capacity and volume.

The children will also be doing arithmetic for one Maths lesson each week.

Please can you help your child learn their Instant Recall Facts for Summer Term 2  Number bonds for each number to 10 in their Maths Home Learning Book. By the end of this half term the children should know the number facts for each number to 10 and be able to recall them instantly.Thank you.




We will be continuing our year long experiment, observing Seasonal changes on trees.


Please visit the link below for some fantastic clips to share with your child at home.


This half term we will be finding out about Light.

We will be naming a variety of light sources. Observing shadows and identifying how shadows get bigger or smaller. Identifying different light sources during the day and night. Identifying materials which are reflective and non reflective and materials which are transparent, translucent and opaque.
