Nile - Year One
This term in Year 1 our topic is ‘Why do we love to be beside the seaside?’. During English we will be studying ‘The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch’ by Ronda and David Armitage and we will be using it to help us write letters, postcards and adventure stories. We will also be writing list poems about what to pack in our suitcases. Our topics in Maths are going to be: Place Value (within 100), Weight and Volume, Money and Time. In science we will be looking at the structure and classification of sea creatures and animal life cycles. During Geography we will also be looking at where people go on holiday, what attracts people to seaside resorts and the human and physical features found at the seaside. In History we will be finding out about seaside holidays in the past and the clothes that were worn. We will be making 3D fish in Design Technology so that we can learn the skills of joining, fanning, quilling and how to make concertinas. In PSHE this half term, our Physical Health and Wellbeing topic will be ‘Fun Times’ and our MindMate topic will be ‘Solving Problems/Making it Better’.
PE will continue to be on Monday and Tuesday. Could you please make sure that your child has both indoor and outdoor kit in school at all times and trainers on PE days!
Please remember to keep reading every night and to practise the sound cards and nonsense monster words in your child’s sound packs daily. The Government Phonics Screening Test is fast approaching - Week beginning 10th June!
