Summer 1 Curriculum Letter
This is a brief overview of what we will be learning this half term.
With our topic of ‘Castles and Dragons’, we will be writing in different genres. We will be writing character descriptions, job descriptions and diary entries.
We will be writing non-fiction reports focusing on Castles and looking at the fairy tale Rapunzel.
In our writing, we will be focusing on using the taught grammar for effect. This includes, expanded noun phrases, adverbs, conjunctions and commas in a list.
Please read with your child for five to ten minutes fives times a week. Use the reading VIPERS below to support questioning. Questioning when reading with your child is fundamental at this stage in their reading development to help them develop their comprehension skills as your children become more able to read fluently.
We will be reading with your child 1:1 every week. We will also be having a daily guided reading whole class session. During the guided reading sessions, we will also be focusing on the VIPERS skills. This half term we will be reading 'The Water Horse'.
Our school has chosen Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised as our new systematic synthetic phonics (SSP) programme to teach early reading and spelling.
Please click on the link below which will take you to the parent support page for phonics information.
In science, we will be investigating ‘Plants'.
Here is some important information you will need for this year.
We will set maths homework on Mathletics and may send home some additional work if we feel that it is required.
When counting or practising times tables with your children at home, please remember to count forwards AND backwards. This is vital to their knowledge and understanding of number patterns.
We are now testing the children weekly on their multiplication knowledge. We shall begin with testing the 10 x table up to 12 x 10. Children have been given their login details to practise on 'TimesTables Rockstars'.
Below are maths mats that show some of the objectives your child will be learning in school. You might find them useful when working with your child at home.
During our money topic, we will count coins and notes (pounds and pence) and make amounts, compare money and find the difference.
When looking at shape we will be identifying and describing properties of 2D shape including number of sides, line of symmetry and identify 2D shapes on the surface of 3D shapes eg circle on a cylinder. We will then move onto fractions and will recognise, find, name and write 1/4 and 2/4 of a length, shape, set of objects. In measure we shall choose and use measures for g, kg, celsius and ml, l. We shall compare and order mass, length and weight.

In Topic, we will be focusing on History. We will focus on 'The Great Fire of London'.
