Orange Class 


During our ‘Seaside’ Learning Journey we will write postcards and read and recall information about seaside holidays in Victorian times. We will also have a focus on Summer and extending our vocabulary by using words to describe Summer and creating mind maps about Summer. Letters and Sounds moves on to looking at how the basic sounds we have learnt can be spelt differently in some words- tricky stuff!  Year 1 pupils will complete the phonics screening check during the week beginning 10th June.


This term we have 4 units of work to cover- Place value to 100, Time, Money and Position and Direction. We will practise counting to and across 100, forwards and backwards from any given number. We will read and write numbers to 100 in numerals and identify one more and one less than a number. In our Time unit we will compare, describe and solve practical problems and measure and begin to record time (hours, minutes, seconds). We will sequence events in chronological order using language [for example, before and after, next, first, today, yesterday, tomorrow, morning, afternoon and evening], 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. Our work on Money will include recognising and knowing the value of different denominations of coins and notes. Our last unit is Position and Direction, we will describe position, direction and movement, including whole, half, quarter and three quarter turns.

Learning Journey (cross curricular subjects)

Our Learning Journey theme for the term is ‘The Seaside’. This will cover the subjects of English, Geography, History and Art. Through our Learning Journey the children will find out about seaside holidays in Victorian times, draw maps and sketch seaside artefacts. Our Science topic explores the season of Summer and summarises the key features of each season of the year. Computing will focus on creating e-cards. Our PA theme is team games. We will be going outside for PA so your child needs to have a full kit including plimsolls in school please. Through PSHE we will focus on changes. Please could your child bring a photograph of themselves as a baby into school by Monday 10th June.
