                                                       Summer Term  2017

This term Class one will continue our homes theme but this time with a history bias; looking at homes in the past and present. We will think about how life used to be and compare it with our lives now. We will continue to look at homes around the world , including areas where we help if disaster happens. As part of this work we will be having a den building day on Friday 12th of May raising funds for Save the Children. Children will be able to wear their own clothes if they bring in £1 on that day and we will be learning how to make our own shelters using a variety of materials and experimenting with methods. All money raised will be sent to Save the Children.

 Our literacy work includes writing our own stories , poems ,and rhymes using stimulus from books , real objects or things we have seen or learnt about. Phonics,spellings , grammar and punctuation, continue to be taught on a daily basis and we try to incorporate our knowledge through written work in all areas of the curriculum. We encourage reading every day in every way possible, however it is so beneficial if children read at home every day as well. Thank you for your support.

 In Maths,  please practise counting in 2's, 5's and 10's at home whenever possible. In class we continue to work with numbers , through multiples, halving and doubling, fractions and understanding data through pictograms , barcharts and tally. We also work with word problems as a class, in small groups or shoulder partners. The challenge is to find the maths question and use our equipment and knowledge to find the solution or answer.

In Science we continue our theme and look at homes and habitats for both people and animals. We will look at homes both past and present ,  building materials and styles fit for purpose in this country and around the world. This will lead us to our day trip to Chester zoo on Wednesday 5th July where we will see manmade animal habitats and the importance of animal care and wellbeing in conservation work. Thank you to everyone who came to our Easter bonnet parade and tea party, we raised £103 towards the cost of the coach to the zoo and the children enjoyed baking, taking orders, serving cakes and making hats.

In R.E., we continue  our studies about why do people of faith have special books , remembering the stories we have been told from the Bible. We are aware  that  people of other faiths have special books too. We also learn through our collective worship programme with Roots and Fruits and songs of praise. We  have a weekly guest worship and SEAL ; social and emotional work with a biblical focus. Our Friday service is a celebration theme where we can share our achievements either from in school or out of school.

P.E this term is on a Tuesday and Thursday so please remember to bring in a full kit including pumps and trainers so we can go outside whenever possible. As our weather improves we will be working on team games and ball skills learning techniques to improve our control and cooperative abilities through a variety of games and sports  .We will need to practise dressing ourselves including zips, buttons and shoes including laces please.

Our transition day will continue our theme on Wednesday 12th July with a picnic for all parents and children at 1pm and including music, activities and refreshments... we can't wait !
