Summer Term

Summer Term -Africa

 


The Summer term offers Year One children the opportunity to go exploring through the different continents to investigate and identify different animals, along with the specific features that make them unique.

 

In History we look at Africa and significant people that lived there such as Nelson Mandela. We will look at the African culture to inspire our art projects, using a range of paint, pencil and assorted materials to create cultural art.

 

This term will be filled with plenty of chances for creative and factual writing through our love for writing. We will be looking at the main parts of the human body and their functions; allowing the Year One class to put their creative abilities into action with our first junk-modelling lesson to design and create working parts of the human body.

 

 

PLEASE NOTE: For Summer term PE days Monday pm and Wednesday pm .

Toys and Watches

Please keep all toys and watches at home to avoid things getting lost. 

 

PE

PE this term will be on Monday afternoon and Wednesday afternoon. Please have your child come to school in their PE clothes. 

 

To help us look after clothes please make sure their PE kit is clearly labelled with their name.
Children will have to come in to school wearing their PE kits on the days they have PE. (They will not need a change of clothes)

On PE days long hair will need to be tied up and earrings removed. 

PE kits should include shorts and T shirts alongside trainers or plimsolls. Children are also encouraged to bring jogging trousers and a jumper as outdoor PE will continue all term. If the weather is wet we will use the hall.

 

Homework

Children will have a homework folder which will be sent home .

Inside their homework folders there will be chilli-challenges that they can also complete on top of homework for the week. There are no expectations to complete these chilli-challenges and it is up to your child, which ones they complete and in what order. When completed they can bring it into class to show what they have done. Every week the children will continue to have phonics and spellings given. A math task will be set via our online portal; MYMATH.  It will be handed out on Fridays and collected in again on Wednesdays.

 

Children are expected to read three times a week, with it being noted in their reading logs. 

 

Please remember to use sound buttons and letter lines when completing Phonics homework.

 

As we are a cashless school we are unable to accept donations for afternoon snack. If your child would like an afternoon snack please provide them with a snack.
