Happy Summer term!

Welcome back to the Summer Term in Year 1! We are amazed at how quick this school year has gone and hope are looking forward to our final term in Year 1. We hope you had a wonderful time with your family during the Easter break and we are really excited to get stuck into our new topic, Land Ahoy! We can't wait to have lots of fun and take part in lots of new learning experiences with you. 

Topic - Land Ahoy!


This term we will be exploring coastline, dangers of the sea, Lighthouses and Pirates.  We will start by completing an experiment as a hook for our learning. Across the term we will be exploring books to use as a stimulus to inspire and stimulate the children's learning. We will be looking at coastlines of the UK and local coastlines, and then moving onto Pirates and sea explorers in Summer 2. We are hoping to visit an RNLI centre and spend a day at a local beach to look the coastline and play some fun summer games. 


We will continue to be focusing on embedding the Curriculum for Wales 4 purposes in our topic by being ambitious, capable learners, enterprising, creative contributors, ethical, informed citizens and healthy, confident individuals.


Please see below for our homework grid and topic overview.

Important information: 

  • PE - Every Thursday morning, please can children come to school in their uniform with their PE kits to change into. Please ensure all clothing items are labelled.
  • Forest school - This will be on a Friday afternoon. Wet weather clothes and wellies will be needed as we will continue to get very muddy! 

What will Literacy look like? 

  • We will be following the Read Write inc scheme to support phonics and reading skills. These will take place daily.
  • Home/school reading books will be changed at least once a week and recorded in reading records. 
  • The Write Stuff approach will be used when writing and during oracy tasks. It is a visual and engaging approach with the use of symbols to support the children's understanding of writing and the world around them.
  • We will continue to use Oracy 21 to continue to develop different strands of our speaking and listening skills.

What will maths look like?

  • We will have three key maths sessions a week; these will take form in a variety of practical and written tasks. We will be starting to learn about multiplication and division, and then continue with fractions. Problem solving and reasoning tasks will be in every lesson.
  • There will also be daily maths activities within the indoor and outdoor provision, as well as frequent mental maths activities and tasks to build up fluency of skills.
