Summer Term 1 - Kings, Queens and Castles
The phonics screening check is this term.
You will recieve a letter shortly before the test informing of the date.
We are continuing to prepare for the phonics screening check by revising sounds learned in Reception and learning new Y1 sounds and spellings.
You can prepare at home by following this link http://www.phonicsscreeningcheck.co.uk/
Homework to practise real and nonsense words will also be sent home in the children's book bags and may can be found online too.
You may be interested to know that above, I have saved a document (HFW checklist) indicating all of the sight words that children should be able to read as they move from reception through to Y2.
English and History
Y1 will be going back in time to explore the history of the Monarchy. Our historical enquiry will be taking a closer look at more prominent figures and their role in history, such as King John and the Magna Carta, the secrets of Richard III and the success of Queen Elizabeth I.
In our English work we will be polishing our use of capital letters for names, places and the days of the week as well as for the personal pronoun I and in beginning a sentence.
We will learn to use suffixes accurately when adding s and es for nouns and verbs and use the suffixes er and est correctly where no change is needed to the root word.
Children will recount events using time adverbials and work upon adjectives to create effect.
We will also ask questions using question words and question marks. we go on to use these questions to find out and collect information from different sources.
In taking a closer look at castles children will be learning new vocabulary and using it in their work.
Year 1 will be taking their learning to new heights as they go up the beanstalk and explore the giants castle!!
Year 1 will be designing their own crests this half term.
In taking a closer look at Queen Elizabeths portraits, children will use a range of materials creatively, using colour, pattern, texture, line and shape, form and space.
In maths we continue to revise number bonds to 10 and extend these to 15 and 20, counting and writing numbers to 100 in numerals and words, spelling days of the week and counting in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s. Any support at home on this revision is welcomed.
