Summer 2 Term Learning - 2018

Literacy

Year 1 have been transitioning well into their guided reading sessions. They have been working towards learning as a group and independently on their reading tasks. They have been showing off their increasing phonic knowledge and are working hard to apply to their spellings and writing. Year 1 have enjoyed their first talk for writing text for ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ and produced some excellent story maps. They showed their enthusiasm in the introduction to their next unit ‘The Sleepy Bumblebee,’ especially when the bee costumes came out! Watch this space for some fantastic story writing over the next few weeks.

Maths

Year 1 started their maths learning by identifying the properties of 2D and 3D shapes. They made fantastic repeating patterns, worked hard on identifying all the different properties and used shapes to construct wonderful shape cities. They are showing greater independence as we all move on to work with number and place value for the remainder of the term.

Science

The children have shown their fantastic knowledge in the science topic ‘animals’. They have been comparing and classifying different types of animals and have shown promising future careers in the vet role play area!

With autumn arriving the children have been excited to see the changes in the outside environment. They have been planting bulbs to bloom in spring and collecting autumn leaves for their threading activities. They showed super gardening skills when we had to weed the KS1 garden after all the summer sun. It is looking much better now after some TLC from our budding gardeners.
