Year 1 Teaching Trees Trip

Planting Seeds in Year 1

Year 1 Summer 1

Welcome back to Summer 1 in Year 1.

This half term in Year 1 our topic is ‘The Enchanted Woodland’ and we will be learning:

Phonics – revising our new Phase 5 sounds and practising for the Phonics Screening check by reading real and alien words. We will also be learning to add the prefix ‘un’. We will be adding suffixes by using the spelling rule to add -s, -es to words and using –ing, –ed, –er and –est where no change is needed in the spelling of root words [for example, helping, helped, helper, eating, quicker, quickest].

English – Non-fiction – fact files and instructions

Maths – Multiplication and division. We will count in multiples of twos, fives and tens. We will be learning to 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.

Science – Plants and trees. We will be learning to identify and name a variety of common plants and deciduous and evergreen trees. We will discuss what plants and trees need to grow and describe the structure of common flowering plants, including trees.

DT/Art – Observational drawing using different media and materials.

RE – Judaism – Who is Jewish and what do they believe?

PE – (every Friday afternoon)

Dates for diary – Thursday 2nd May is our trip to Ledston Estate to support our topic in Science.

Another busy half term of new learning to look forward to. Thank you for your continued support.
