All Saints Church of England Primary and Nursery School

Year 1 Orange Class

Teachers: Mrs Sinfield and Mrs Cook

Our topic this term is The Seaside and our key question is 'How have seaside holidays changed?' We will explore this through our work in History, Geography and English. As part of our learning we have planned a trip to Hastings to visit the aquarium, beach and West Hill lift. Please give your consent on ParentPay for your child to attend this trip. 

In Maths we will be covering units of work on numbers to 100, time and money. We will be counting to and across 100, forwards and backwards, beginning from any given number. We will learn to tell the time to o'clock and half past and recognise and know the value of different coins and notes.

In PE this term we will be focusing on athletics and team games. Weather permitting, our PE lessons will take place outside. Therefore, your child needs to have a suitable pair of plimsolls or trainers along with their PE kit in school at all times. 

  

Supersonic Phonic Friends

We will continue our Phonics journey using our exciting validated scheme- Supersonic Phonic Friends. This term we will complete Higher Level 5- Switch it Spell sounds. The children will learn new sounds for the spellings that they already know. The children will bring home a weekly Phonics newsletter so that you know what stage they are at with their learning and can support them with this. The week beginning 10th June all Year 1 children will be assessed using the national Phonics Screening Check. You will be informed of the results of this with your child's report at the end of the term.

Please read with your child 5 times a week at home- it is vital to the development of their reading that they practise the Phonics skills that they learn at school by applying them to their reading at home regularly. You can also come into the Year 1 classroom after school everyday to read with your child.

Knowledge Organiser

Each term, we produce a knowledge organiser to explain the key areas of the topic we will be focusing on.  A knowledge organiser is a document that contains key facts and information that children need to have a basic knowledge and understanding of a topic.

Most knowledge organisers will include:

  • the essential facts about the topic, usually laid out in easily digestible chunks
  • key vocabulary or technical terms and their meaning

Homework

Homework grids are in the children's homework books. The children can choose to do as many of the activities as they wish. They can hand their homework in at any point in the term- we love to see what they have been doing at home.
