Summer term update!

We hope you have all had a wonderful half term with your children and you all enjoyed the sunshine when it arrived! The children thoroughly enjoyed making their gardening bags at the end of last half term and learning about plants. Our plants learning will continue this term with our new topic of ‘Nature Detectives’, which will see us grow some of our own plants. We are all looking forward to our trip to Hillier’s Gardens in a couple of weeks, where we will get to explore many different plants from those found in our school grounds.

In English this term, we will be writing our own stories based upon the story ‘Jim and the Beanstalk’ and thinking about different places that might be at the top of the beanstalk. As part of our maths, we will be continuing to practise our counting and writing of numbers accurately and talking about how we know numbers are bigger or smaller than each other.

Reminder: Please can we ask for your child’s PE kit to be in school everyday, as sometimes we need to change the day we carry out PE. Also as sports day approaches, we like to have extra practises of some of the activities.

Thank you for your continued support,

Year 1 Team
