Year 1


Summer term 2


This term the children in Year 1 will be exploring the theme ‘beside the sea’. 

 As writers, we will be using ‘The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch’ to help us write our own recipes for disgusting sandwiches as well as a setting description.

In grammar we will look at homophones and contractions to enhance our writing.

 As readers we will continue our learning within Phase 5 Letters And Sounds and revising all our sounds. We will read weekly as a class and analyse poems, stories and prose. We will be developing our comprehension skills through whole class and independent reading.

 As mathematicians we will be building upon our current place value knowledge, as well as making our own potions to explore capacities!

As scientists we will be looking at Animals and Humans by studying mini beasts and learning about the different types of living creatures.

 As Geologists we will be learning about mountains and rivers.

 As artists and designers we will be using the water colours to create fantastic seaside pictures.

 As philosophers we will be learning about how to be kind to ourselves.
