Year 1 Curriculum Newsletter - Summer 2017
Welcome back! I hope you had a relaxing break and our ready for the final term in year 1.
In English this half term we will be writing our own stories based on the book 'No-Bot’ by Sue Hendra. We will explore the characters and events in the story, and make changes to create our own version of the text. We will then move onto poetry and will write our own poems and learn some to perform to the rest of the class.
On behalf of the staff in year 1, I would like to thank you for all of your support with phonics this year as all of the children have worked tremendously hard this year and they were a credit to yourselves and the school. Well done!
Please encourage your child to read daily and learn the spellings they are set each week at home.
This term we will be revisiting the topics that we have covered throughout the year, to consolidate and extend our learning. We will begin with time and number work, and then we will revisit capacity, fractions and shape. Please support your child with learning their 2, 5 and 10 times tables and completing their maths homework each week at home.
Our new topic for this half term is ‘Robots’ which is an exciting theme for our final half term in year 1. The main subject within this topic is science and we will be exploring the human body, comparing this to that of a robot. We will end the year with a team challenge to make a robot that can help around the house!
As this half term is all about celebrating our achievements this year, our final computing topic will include designing and making a card for a celebration using word art and inserting a pictures.
Your child will be set homework tasks to complete each week which will focus on reading and spelling, maths and topic to build on their knowledge at home. If you have any concerns, there will be opportunities for informal chats at the end of the school day, but if you would like a more formal meeting, please arrange a time with a member of the year 1 staff at the office.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all of your support throughout this year, and wish you a safe and happy summer ready for moving onto year 2.
