The summer term
We begin the first half of our Summer term ‘Off on Safari’, where we will learn about animals from warmer climates. We explore similarities and differences in living things, developing a sense of responsibility by showing care for the wider world around us.
In the second half of this term, we anticipate the warmer days ahead of us, with our topic being ‘Oh, I Do Like to Be Beside the Seaside’. Looking at the coastline and how people like to spend their leisure time, we will compare features with our immediate environment.
In phonics, children will now be learning two and three letter sounds and apply them in reading and writing. They will say and hold a sentence to write, showing that they understand what they have written and that others need to be able to read it clearly.
Now the children have a deeper understanding of number and place value to 20, we will develop addition and subtraction application further. We will move onto early multiplication and division, exploring doubling, halving and sharing amounts. We will also begin to explore odd and even numbers.
