Year 1 - Rainbow Fish & Elmer

Rainbow Fish & Elmer Classes

Curriculum for SUMMER TERM 1

Welcome to Year One!

Summer 2:

English:

Alice in Wonderland

Alice’s adventures lead her down the rabbit-hole into Wonderland, where she meets an array of curious characters, including the Mad Hatter, the Mock Turtle and the grinning Cheshire Cat.

Reading:

Children will continue learning the phonemes and graphemes from phase 5 of Little Wandle Letters and Sounds revised, and will continue to read and write tricky and high-frequency words from phase 3, 4 and 5. Guided reading will also occur on a daily basis using Collins Cat phonics books. Children are encouraged to celebrate the books we read at home with their parents at least three times per week.

Maths: 

The children will be begin with money where they will recognise and know the value of different denominations of coins and notes.  After they will move onto time, where they will sequence events in chronological order using language [for example, before and after, next, first, today, yesterday, tomorrow, morning, afternoon and evening. They should recognise and use language relating to dates, including days of the week, weeks, months and years. Tell the time to the hour and half past the hour and draw the hands on a clock face to show these times. In addition, they will compare, describe and solve practical problems for time [for example, quicker, slower, earlier, later]. They will measure and begin to record time (hours, minutes, seconds).

Science: 

This half term, children learn about the seasons Spring and Summer. They will start to make comparisons between two seasons, as well as across all four seasons. They will also observe changes across the seasons by exploring the signs of spring and summer through nature and wildlife. A range of learning activities are used in this unit, including observation, discussion and learning outside. Children will also work scientifically by collecting, recording and interpreting simple data.  

RE

The children will continue to learn about Christianity.

History/Geography

Children will go back in time to the Victorians, where they will explore what it was like to have a seaside holiday.  They will match objects to people of different ages, recognise the difference between past and present in their own and others lives and find answers to simple questions about the past from sources of information e.g. artefacts.

Cross-curricular links will be made to Geography, which will focus on seaside resorts (human and phyisical features), coastal towns and ports and harbours.

PE

Rainbow Fish - Wedneday and Thursday

Elmer - Tuesday and Thursday

Children must have a full PE kit in school at all times. If kits are taken home after clubs, they must be returned the next day. Children who do not have the appropriate full kit in school are unable to take part in PE, which is an important part of the curriculum. Please ensure all items, including footwear are clearly labelled. This includes A plain (with or without the Freshwaters logo) white T-shirt, Navy blue shorts, A navy blue tracksuit (to include a jumper and bottoms). Please ensure that your child also has a pair of trainers for outdoor PE 

Earring are prohibited during PE, please ensure that earring are removed before coming to school.

Home Learning

Spellings will be given out every Friday, they are to be kept at home, reviewed daily to be prepared for the test the following Friday. There will also be a Maths or English homework which must be returned by the following Wednesday.  Reading for just 10-15 minutes per day will have a huge impact on the children’s fluency.
