Hello and welcome to Term 6! Only one more term to go until the children enter year 2. It feels like it has shot by for us and we’re guessing you feel the same!?
Still, a very busy term will see a triumphant end to a phenomenal year we’re sure. The children will be completing their phonics tests in week 2 (dates below) so please do as much reading as is humanly possible at home! We really appreciate all your efforts and support.
We kick off with our final project, ‘have you got your bucket and spade?’ with a – you guessed it – focus on all things beachy. This will include a look at the history and importance of beaches specifically in relation to the country’s leisure activities, encompassing elements of History, Geography and Art. Of course, no beach project would be complete without a celebratory trip to Weston Pier and beach itself. If you would like to volunteer to help on this trip please let the office know! Dates below.
New spellings are being tested from week 1 and are generally a mix of exception words which children need to read and spell by the end of year 1.
Maths this term will cover place value in 2 digit numbers, counting in 2s 5s 10s, doubling and halving, time, measure, 2D shapes, addition and subtraction, finding change.
The children will learn about poetry, riddles, warning stories and persuasive writing, beginning with the latter.
