Year 1

IPC – Hooray Let's Go on Holiday!

We will be learning about how holidays have changed over time and the different types of holidays our families might have been on in the past. We will also compare the similarities and differences of holidays in the past and present, such as how did we travel there and what destinations they went to. We will also be looking at what people might wear on holiday and how tourism could spoil a holiday. 


English - We will be exploring words with prefixes and suffixes. Our main focus text is Claude in the city, who is a dog that goes on an adventure through the city and rumbles an unsuspecting robber in an art gallery with his best friend Sir Bobbly sock. We will also be focusing on adding detail to our writing by using adjectives and conjunctions. 



As part of our Maths topic for summer term 2, we will be learning place value to 100 and recognising and counting coins and money and measuring units of time. 



We will be finding out about the changes across the four seasons and observing how the weather changes. We will also be looking at different events within the seasons and how time varies across the seasons. 



Just to remind you that homework is sent out on Monday to be returned to school each Thursday for marking.  The ‘menu’ type homework allows children to choose which homework they would like to do each week based on what subject’s interests them the most.  Please date the menu to show which homework has been completed each week.


Reading Records are to be in school every day whether your child has read or not, this is so we can record any comments that we may have during Guided Reading sessions. Reading books may be changed daily if the Reading Records have been signed by an adult to show a book has been read. All Reading Records are checked on Monday, Wednesday and Friday to ensure that children are reading regularly at home.  Online books can also be accessed on ‘Bug Club’ through the Active Learn website.
