Summer Term
Year 1
Welcome back- Summer term 2021

Welcome back everybody! We hope that you have enjoyed the Easter break. We are excited to begin the summer term. We have lots of fun and exciting activities and lessons ahead. 

During this half term, we will be focusing on the topic ‘To infinity and beyond’ where we will focus on the book 'Toys in space.' written by Mini Grey. 



Science Y1

In Science this term we will be learning about changing seasons, different materials and types of animals. 


Maths Y1

In Maths we would like your children to practice what we have been learning this term. Counting in 2s and in 5s, addition and subtraction to 20, place value (within 50) and measurement.  

In the summer term we will be exploring multiplication and division (counting in 10s, doubling, making equal groups and using arrays). Children during the summer term will also be exploring fractions, moving on to place value within 100 and continue with the measurement topic but this time looking at money and time. 


We would love it if the children could continue to practice their handwriting and letter formation. Making sure that they're writing sits on the lines and that they are using finger spaces. 

Below you can see a table which shows what we aim for children to include in their writing during this term. This will be taught through exploring the story ‘Toys in space’ by Mini Grey and ‘Goldilocks and Just the one bear’ by Leigh Hodgkinson. 



Please view the file for the year 1 common exception words. 

You can practice the phase 5 tricky words here - 


This week we have been learning the following sounds from phase 5- 

au, ey, e_e, i_e, o_e

To support children further at home you could ask them to write some words that contain these sounds. Can they add them into a sentence?
