Koalas - Year 1

    

 

Our learning this half term is based around the topic 'Over and Under the Ocean'. 

 

 

 

During our first week back we will be doing lots of work around the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations. Then in English we will start with the book The Snail and the Whale and write a postcard from the snail, telling of his travels.   We will then read Tiddler and write our own story about why we are late for school!

 

 

This half term we will be learning about Time, Measurement, Shape, Multiplication and division. We will apply our learning in problem solving lessons. 

 

 

 

 

 

In Science our focus is Animals including Humans. We will learn how to sort and group different animals depending on whether they are birds, reptiles, mammals, amphibians or fish.  

 

 

In Geography we will be learning about the seven continents and five oceans.  We will also look at simple compass directions.  The children will be learning about the artist Michelle Reader in Art and Design. She makes sculptures from recycled materials.    In Music we are following the Charanga Scheme of work.  Our Computing skills will be used throughout the half term in many of our other subjects, and we will also be learning how to use Scratch Junior.  Our RSHE theme this half term is changing me and the children will be discussing how they feel about moving into their next classes.  In RE we will be listening to Christian stories and talk about their meaning.  

 

Trips

 

We are visiting Vicar Water on Friday 1st July May 

 

We are inviting visitors into school and children will take part in dance through the decades workshop as part of our Jubilee celebration work.

 

P.E.

 

We have P.E. on  Monday (Gymnastics) and Wednesday (Games).  In Gymnastics we will be using the large apparatus.  Games will focus on invasion games and the children will learn the skills needed for attacking and defending.  Children will need to come to school in their PE kit on these days.  Children will need a white or green round neck t-shirt, shorts and plimsolls or trainers.  They can also come in joggers.  Long hair will need to be tied back.  If possible, earrings should be taken out.  If this is not possible, they should be covered with plasters or micro-pore tape.

 

 

 

Homework will be posted on Seesaw every Friday.  This may be a link to an activity on Education City or Phonics work.  The children need to complete this by the following Wednesday and they will receive a stamp on their Bear Hunt Sheet for all completed homework.

 

Reading

We expect children to read every night at home, and this to be recorded in the children's reading diary.  Children will get stickers in their diary when they have reached 25, 50, 75, 100, 125, 150, 175 and 200 nights worth of reading, along with a small reward.
