Class 6 Year 1 2017 - 2018

Miss Bond

Welcome back Class 6 to the first half of our Summer term! smiley

We hope that you have all had a happy and restful Easter break and are looking forward to the exciting weeks ahead.

In English we will read the poem 'Daffodils' by William Wordsworth. We will use the ideas from the poem to complete our oen descriptive writing and poem using collective ideas. We will explore how 'and' can be used to join ideas together and how to use sentences to express ideas creatively. We will sing, dance and enjoy a variety of familiar and new Action Poems. We will refine the skills of working collaboratively to enhance performances, and be able to compose our own versions of known action poems. We will develop an understanding of using capital letters to spell proper nouns, and how to use exclamation marks in sentences.

In Maths we will learn about multiplication and division. We will use counting in 2s, 5s or 10s to solve  practical problems involving repeated addition. We will begin to work out multiplication by finding how many sets of. We will work out simple division problems by finding how many sets in a given number.

Our RE topic is Resurection. The children will learn that Easter is the most important Christian feast because Jesus rose from the dead on Easter Sunday. They will learn about the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost and reflect on times when their own sadness turned to joy. They will be introduced to Thomas the apostle and reflect on the importance of his story.

Our topic this term is called 'changes'. In science, we will be finding out about seasonal changes. As well as learning the names and structures of a variety of common plants. In history, we will be looking at changes within living memory. Learning about how Crewe has changed over time. We will be then finding out about the railways and Bentley and investigate how transport has changed over time. Our geography part of our topic this half term is to learn about the weather and how it changes through the seasons.


Don't forget the children will continue to have access to a wide range of colour banded books which they can choose and change within the classroom. Please continue to make sure that your child is reading every day and that any reading completed at home is recorded in their reading diaries. 

PE lessons will continue to be on a Tuesday and Friday afternoons, please make sure your child has a PE kit (indoor and outdoor) in school. Homework will be given out in Homework books on a Friday and to be returned by Wednesday.

Class 6s' updated curriculum map is available on our class page below, which will give further information on all of the above.

We are looking forward to having another fantastic half term in year 1!

Many thanks for all your continued support, it is most appreciated.

Miss Bond and Mrs Owen
