Reach for the Stars

Term 6

Welcome back, we hope you enjoyed the half term!

We are looking forward to term 6 and all the fun that it will bring as well as sunnier days.

We will begin the term with a computing week where the children will be digital engineers to learn how to programme a moving robot. Later on in the term, we’ll also look forward to a trip to Noah’s Ark where we’ll take part in a classification workshop where we’ll be working scientifically to sort and classify a range of animals. Finally, there will lots of exciting activities planned to support the children in moving to Year 2.


Enquiry Learning

We will begin with the enquiry ‘What grows near me?’ where we will be scientists to learn about the structure and parts of plants, as well as be able to name different wild and common plants.  The enquiry will launch with a trip to our local woodland area to explore and identify the plants that grow in our local area.  Our second enquiry is ‘What am I?’ where we will again be scientists to sort and classify to help us learn about the classification of animals.




 As author writers we will be using the texts ‘Grandpa’s Garden’ and ‘The last tree in the city’ as a stimulus for narrative writing. We’ll be learning the texts and then innovating them. We’ll also be using our author writer skills to explore our imagination and be creative writers.




As mathematicians we will finish our ‘place value within 100’ unit and then move on to multiplication and division.



Common Exception Words

Please use your highlighted paper copy of CEW to ensure that the children are able to read and write all the CEW. If your child is able to read and write all of the Year 1 CEW then they will now be moved on to the Year 2 CEW. 




We move onto the 'changing me' jigsaw piece. As philosophers, children will understand lifecycles, change, changes in themselves as well as explore learning and growing.  



The children now have 2 sessions weekly and will continue dance lessons as well as  personal and social skills through REAL PE.
