Class 1

Reaching for the Stars with Aspiration and Hope


Summer term 2021.
We are Explorers! 
This term we will be 'exploring' many areas of learning. We will be exploring as we take a journey on The Hundred Decker Bus (our english text), we will be finding out about the historical explorers Christopher Columbus and Neil Armstrong, we will be exploring our local environment and learning about trees and plants as well as growing some plants ourselves. 
We will become minibeast explorers, using our outdoor area to identify which creatures live there.  
We will be comparing the artists Van Gogh and LS Lowry and experimenting with watercolours and charcoal to produce our art work. 
Y1 and Reception will be learning different gymnastic moves and practise putting a sequence together. 
Our RE focus will be on the Jewish religion, finding out about special celebrations and daily living. 
We will be continuing our musical journey and learning to use the tuned percussion to perform, alongside the songs we will be learning. 
We will be continuing with our phonics learning which supports our reading and writing. Books will be changed once a week, if read regularly at home and books will be allocated on Bug Club too. 
We will be spending more time outside so as the weather improves sunhats and suncream (applied before school) are a must.
