Welcome to Year One

Year one news - summer term



In each term children will be given the opportunity to experience three different genres of writing, this includes fiction, non-fiction and poetry.

During Summer 1 term our fiction unit will be based on the theme of familiar settings.   Our focus will be on the story of Goat and Donkey in the Great Outdoors.   Children will study this story alongside other stories with familiar settings.   These will include Boris goes Camping and a series of Percy the Park Keeper stories.

Once completed the children will then learn all about camping, the do's and don'ts, where to go, what equipment to take and what to do whilst there.




 Children will continue to consolidate their learning of place value, addition and subtraction, positional language and time.   This will be undertaken in a variety of different situations in order to allow children to apply what they have learnt and to develop their reasoning and problem solving skills.

Wherever possible we will also use the outdoor environment to support our learning.
