Summer Term 2024

Summer Term 2024 

Class Topics

Our first topic in the summer term is 'Into the Woods' and learning will be centred around 'The Last Wolf' by Mini Grey and other texts with a woodland theme.   In the last half term of the year,  our topic is 'Land of the Giants' and we will be focusing on the text 'Grandad's Secret Giant' by David Litchfield.  Please see the topic web file below for further information.

In mathematics, we follow the White Rose scheme of work and will be focusing on the following units of work during the summer term.  Links to games for each unit of work can be found on the maths tab along the top of the page. 

Year 1


Number: Multiplication and division

  •  solve one-step problems involving multiplication and division, by calculating the 
    answer using concrete objects, pictorial representations and arrays with the support 
    of the teacher

Number: Fractions

  •  recognise, find and name a half as one of two equal parts of an object, shape or 
  • recognise, find and name a quarter as one of four equal parts of an object, shape or 

Geometry: Position and direction 

  • describe position, direction and movement, including whole, half, quarter and three-quarter turns

Number: Place value (within 100)

  • count to and across 100, forwards and backwards, beginning with 0 or 1, or from any 
    given number
  • count, read and write numbers to 100 in numerals; count in multiples of twos, fives 
    and tens
  • given a number, identify one more and one less
  • identify and represent numbers using objects and pictorial representations including 
    the number line, and use the language of: equal to, more than, less than (fewer), 
    most, least
  • read and write numbers from 1 to 20 in numerals and words.

Measurement: Money

  •  recognise and know the value of different denominations of coins and notes

Measurement: Time

  •  sequence events in chronological order using language [for example, before and 
    after, next, first, today, yesterday, tomorrow, morning, afternoon and evening]
  • recognise and use language relating to dates, including days of the week, weeks, 
    months and years
  • tell the time to the hour and half past the hour and draw the hands on a clock face to 
    show these times
  • measure and begin to record time (hours, minutes, seconds)
  • compare and solve practical problems involving time (quicker, slower, earlier, later)


Year 2


Number: Fractions

  •  recognise, find, name and write fractions 1/3, 1/4, 2/4 or 3/4 of a length, shape, set of 
    objects or quantity
  • write simple fractions for example, 1/2 of 6 = 3 and recognise the equivalence of 2/4
    and 1/2 

Measurement: Time

  • compare and sequence intervals of time
  • tell and write the time to five minutes, including quarter past/to the hour and draw the 
    hands on a clock face to show these times
  • know the number of minutes in an hour and the number of hours in a day


  • interpret and construct simple pictograms, tally charts, block diagrams and simple 
  • ask and answer simple questions by counting the number of objects in each category 
    and sorting the categories by quantity
  • ask and answer questions about totalling and comparing categorical data

Geometry: Position and direction 

  •  order and arrange combinations of mathematical objects in patterns and sequences
  • use mathematical vocabulary to describe position, direction and movement, including 
    movement in a straight line and distinguishing between rotation as a turn and in 
    terms of right angles for quarter, half and three-quarter turns (clockwise and anti-clockwise). 

Measurement: Mass, capacity and temperature 

  • choose and use appropriate standard units to estimate and measure: mass (kg/g); temperature (°C); capacity (litres/ml) to the 
    nearest appropriate unit, using scales, thermometers and measuring vessels
  • compare and order mass, volume/capacity and record the results using >, < 
    and =



In science, our topic is 'How does your garden grow?' and we will be focusing on the following:

  • identifying and describing the basic structure of a variety of common flowering plants, including trees.
  • identifying and naming a variety of common wild and garden plants including deciduous and evergreen trees
  • observing and describing how seeds and bulbs grow into mature plants
  • asking simple questions and recognising that they can be answered in different ways
  • observing closely, using simple equipment
  • performing simple tests
  • identifying and classifying
  • using observations and ideas to suggest answers to questions
  • gathering and recording data to help in answering questions



We follow the Pathways to Write English scheme.  Below, you can see tables showing what we aim for children to be including within their writing at the end of each half term.
