In Maths this term the children will be learning to represent and use number bonds and related subtraction facts within 20, add and subtract one digit and two digit numbers to 20, including 0, read, write and interpret mathematical statements involving addition, subtraction and equals. The children will then solve on step problems that involve addition and subtraction using concrete objects and pictorial representations, and missing number problems. The children will learn to count in multiples of twos, fives and tens and solve one step problems involving multiplication and division.
The children will also learn to recognize and know the value of different denominations of coins and motes and solve one step problems that involve addition and subtraction, in the context of money.
The children will be learning to write finding tales and will use Lutey and the Mermaid as our model text. It is based on an old Cornish folk tale.
The children were very excited to find the story in a bottle, along with some beautiful shells from the mermaid.
The children will learn to use joining words and full stops accurately, sequence their sentences to write narratives and re-read their writing to check that it makes sense, beginning to independently edit their writing.
Geography and Art
This term our focus will be comparing Hastings with contrasting villages, towns and cities around the world.
The children will learn to identify countries on a world map, compare and contrast two villages, towns or cities and classify different features of locations, for example tourist attractions and shopping centres.
Alongside this, as we journey around the world, the children will be a exploring a different art form each week to express and represent the features of each location we visit.
Letters and Sounds
The Phonics Screening Check is coming up in Week 2 this term. We will share your child’s results with you at Parents’ Consultation Meetings later in the term. Please ensure you are reading with your child every day and encouraging them to self-correct their reading.
Home learning will continue to be linked to our Letters and Sounds, and Maths. Please encourage your child to complete this each week.
Later in the term please look our for your child’s end of year academic report and for a parents’ consultation meeting letters.
Towards the end of the term we will begin preparing the children for the transition to Year 2. Moving up a year is an exciting time but if your child has any worries or concerns around this transition, please come and speak to use so that we can work together to support your child.
