Year 1, Term 6

Welcome back to what promises to be a very busy term!

This term our theme is called ’Grow, grow, grow’ and we will be focusing on living things in our school environment.

In Science, we will be bug-hunting and learning about the habitats and life-cycles of some creatures that we find. We’ll also be looking at plants: what are their main parts and what do they need to grow healthily?

Linking in with our Science, we will be reading and understanding and planning and writing information texts. Also in English, we will be listening to lots of stories, thinking about their structure then writing our own. As always, we will carry on with Phonics and Guided reading.

We have already introduced multiplication so, in Maths this term, we’ll continue with this and also learn how to share or divide groups of objects. Mrs. Street-Poulsen will be teaching the class about ordering and measuring capacity and how to describe position and direction.

In RE, the focus is on comparing and contrasting naming ceremonies from different religions.


We hope to make the most of the weather and spend time outside thinking about signs of Summer and thinking about how we could improve our school’s grounds. Please could you make sure that the children have a sunhat with them every day- just in case!

In P.E., Mr. Graham will be doing Athletics and getting prepared for Sports Day and I will be doing some games with the class.

Just a reminder: please could all clothes be named, particularly jumpers as they often get taken off during the day.


As always, if you have any concerns or questions, just ask us.



With Thanks,

Jane Bennington and Erica Street-Poulsen
