Year 1

Summer 2

This half term in Year 1 we will be learning...


Collective Worship

Our value for this half term is Service'. 

Throughout this half term, we will be listening to and responding to a range of bible stories that teach Christians about the importance of our value.


Don't forget to complete your value tasks! They could be included in our next newsletter!


Reading Eggs

This half term, we will be accessing Reading Eggs on a weekly basis. The aim is for every child to complete a minimum of 5 reading sessions per week.  


Most of these sessions will be completed in school, however it would be extremely beneficial for children to be accessing it from home on a weekly basis as well.  The aim of this programme is to improve children's reading and comprehension skills, by quickly adapting to meet the exact needs of every child. 



This half term we will be writing stories with a fantasy setting based on the story No-Bot. We will also be exploring recounts and learning poems by heart. Our grammar focus this half term is using the suffix's -ed, -es and -ing.



This half term we will be covering the following areas in our Maths lessons...

Place Value (within 100)

Measurement: Money

Measurement: Time
