Summer 2 learning 

 welcome back!

 Allhumdulilah today Year 1 class has came back to school since the lock down. 


Summer 2 Topics

  • English – From the book ‘The story Tree’ we are  focusing on the story called ‘The Sweetest Song’  
  • Maths – There are some topics we are going to revisit such as Space, Volume and capacity, Mass Money.
  • Science – Plants: 

    This unit will introduce children to the idea of plants as living things which grow and change over time. Children will work towards answering the Quest question, ‘How can we make a plant identification kit?’ The unit will encourage children to recognise the common features, similarities and differences between plants. Children will learn about the basic structure of a variety of common flowering plants, including trees. They will identify, name and describe the main parts of plants, including trees. They will learn that trees are plants and will learn the meaning of ‘evergreen’ and ‘deciduous’ when describing and comparing trees. Children will describe and compare common plants and trees in their local environment and will learn specific vocabulary relating to trees, e.g. trunk, bark etc. They will have the opportunity to plant, grow and observe their own plants throughout the unit.

    Children will consider how to treat plants as living things with care. At the end of the unit, children will create a model plant, a record of local plants and an identification kit for plants in their local area.

    Working Scientifically, children will focus on observing closely using simple equipment, naming and grouping and recognising similarities and differences between plants. Children will make and record their observations and will also have the opportunity to gather and record data in a simple way to help in answering questions.

    This unit builds on any work children have done in the Foundation Stage. This is the introductory unit on plants and lays the foundations for future work in this area.

  • Art African Art

  • Computing – Programming simple games

  • PSHE – Children will be learning how to stay safe during the time of Coronavirus is around. They will be learning how to deal with different emotions and communicate if they have any worries.

Going Wild in Clapham Woods!

This half term year one were super excited (as always) to visit Clapham woods, they were super sensible went travelling via public transport and were complimented numerous time on their excellent behaviour. Members of the public could not believe that they were five...

What can you do to Help?

  • Encourage the children to become more independent.
  • Please label all items of clothing and book bags.
  • Make sure that you check that the children have taken their homework and that they return it.
  • Involve your child in real world maths by talking about how much something costs or how many you have. The children will benefit from it in class.
  • Please provide your child with a water bottle.
  • Please ensure the children start the day with a healthy breakfast.


Homework will consist of literacy, numeracy and spelling. It will be sent out on Friday and collected on Wednesday. Your child will also be sent home a reading book each week. Do encourage the children to read the book more than once. As they are beginning readers they may need to read the same book more than once to understand what the text is about. Do ask them about what they are reading, as it will help them in their reading comprehension.
  • English – Narrative, Non-fiction and poetry
  • Maths – Counting, addition and subtraction, positions and shapes and patterns
  • Science – Identifying Materials
  • Computing – E Safety
  • Geography – Hot and cold places
  • PSHE – New Beginnings
