Year 1

Summer 1 2021

 Welcome back to school after the Spring Break!

A reminder that PE will take place every Monday so please ensure that PE kits are sent in. P.E. kits must be named and in a named bag. P.E. will be outside again for this half term so you may want to send in a track suit to keep legs and arms warm. 

Homework and Spellings will be sent home on a Friday and should be returned the following Thursday. 

 Spellings given on a Friday will be tested the following Friday. 

 Book bags should be sent in every day.


This half term we will be reading the book Rapunzel written by Bethan Woollvin. We will be learning to write our own version of a traditional tale using this story structure and also writing instructions on how to catch a witch.


We will continue to focus on securing our understanding of number by:

  • Partitioning numbers into two or more parts
  • Counting forwards and backwards to 100,
  • Counting in 2s, 5s and 10s
  • Knowing number bonds to 10 and 20.
  • Learning doubles and corresponding halves to 10.
  • Recognising odd and even numbers
  • Adding, subtracting and comparing numbers to 20


 This half term we will be completing our work on cities by comparing cities around the world, looking at their human and physical features.


For science this half term we will complete the work started on plants and also looking at seasonal changes before beginning our study of animals including humans. 

 I look forward to a successful half term. If you have any concerns or queries then please feel free to speak to me.
