Summer half term 1

Welcome back! We hope you had a lovely Easter break and are looking forward to another action packed half-term in Year One! Below we have outlined some of the activities that we will be undertaking this half term:

Our new topic for this half-term is called “Watch out! Dragons about!”

In Literacy, we will begin by reading “The Something” by Rebecca Cobb before moving on to “The Odd Egg!” by Emily Gravett and “Tell Me a Dragon” by Jackie Morris. We will continue to develop our independence to write a sequence of sentences with capital letters and full stops as well as reinforce correct letter formation by sitting our letters on the lines with clear ascenders and descenders.

In Topic lessons, we will be learning about the countries which make up the United Kingdom as well as the Queen in the run up to her Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

In Science, we will be learning about growing plants and hopefully brightening up our outside area with some of our creations!

In PE, our focus will be tennis on Tuesdays with Mr Gibbons and Mrs Hughes and athletics on Fridays with Mrs Bradley. Most PE lessons will be outside this half term so please could you send in appropriate, outdoor PE kits as well as trainers. Please could you also ensure that all uniform is labelled and checked regularly and be aware that for health and safety reasons, earrings must be removed or covered during PE lessons? 

In Numeracy, the children will be consolidating counting in 2s, 5s and 10s and developing this with multiplication and division activities. 

Homework will continue to be practical and fun. It will be posted on Tapestry each Friday and should be completed by Wednesday of the following week.

Thank you for your continued support with your children’s reading. The children are making fantastic progress! This half term, all children will continue to have three guided reads a week in school as well as a library book, online phonics book and individual reading books to share with you at home. Any time snuggling up with a book is really beneficial as regular practice is the key to reading at this age and has a positive impact on your child’s reading ability!

We will be having a Year 1 phonics meeting to share strategies and alleviate any worries about the Year 1 Phonics Check which takes place in June on Monday 25th April at 3.45pm.The powerpoint will be available if you cannot make the meeting or perhaps a recording on Tapestry.


We hope this is helpful and look forward to another enjoyable half term! Please do not hesitate to pop in and see us if you have any questions or queries. Our door is always open!

Kind regards,

Mrs Hughes and Mrs Bradley
