YEAR 1

Summer Term 2019

Well the Summer term is upon us already! A big focus for us in Year 1 will be the push towards the Phonics Screening Test, starting on Monday 10th June. In the test the children will be asked to read a list of 40 words, sounding each one out. Remember some will be real words and some will be ‘alien’ or made up words. Any help you can give your child will be beneficial. We have also decided to give a reading list each week, instead of spellings to learn.

In class we will be doing a lot of map work, looking at countries of the UK and capital cities, we might even make our own maps too.

Our Science work will focus on plants and seeds and we hope to get outside and do some planting.

Creative homework tasks will continue for you to work at with your child at home, at your leisure.

Hopefully the sun will shine and give us some opportunities to get outside and enjoy learning outdoors.

Any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to come and see us.
