Blyton Class- Summer Term 6
Well can you believe it, here we are in the Summer Term!!! It only seems like yesterday that we were all starting a new school year in Blyton class- how time flies when you’re having fun.
This term our topic is ‘Dinosaurs’
Our literacy will be inspired by story books such as ‘Dinosaurs love underpants’, ‘If I had a dinosaur’ , ‘Captain Flynn and the dinosaur pirates’ to name a few as well as non-fiction books where we will be finding facts about these fascinating creatures. This term we are doing a real push on writing stories, and getting the children to use their imaginations to make up their own adventures and characters.
In Phonics we are recapping on our digraph sounds, and also beginning to look at different spelling patterns for the same sound e.g ou (found) and ow (cow). We are also trying to spell our high frequency words correctly now too. Year 1’s will be continuing their recapping on alternative spelling patterns, and will be completing their Phonics screening test in June.
In numeracy we will be returning to addition and subtraction and writing our own number sentences. We will be remembering our number bonds and doubling numbers to help us solve problems and understanding that subtraction is the inverse of addition. We will now be using the number line and 100 square more, rather than objects to work out the answers. Year 1’s will be working with place value up to 100, and comparing amounts and giving reasoning on how to solve problems.
This term there is also lots of other exciting things going on as well, such as Sports Day, Class trip to Wingham Wildlife park, Summer ball to name a few. The children will be coming home with their reports and will also be having a transition visit to their new classroom in July too.
