Summer Term 2017

Welcome back to your final term in Year 1!

Our topic this term is From A to B. Throughout this topic we will be looking at different types of transport and how they help us to get around. In literacy we will be reading Oi! Get off our Train by John Burrningham, The Train Ride and The Hundred Decker Bus.


Here we are enjoing our topic entry point! We had to work in small groups to design and create our own rocket. We then took them outside and launched them. We had lots of fun!

We will be having lots of fun learning this term and will also be going on a school trip based on our transport theme! In June we will have our Phonics screening check so will be very busy preparing for this. 

In literacy we have enjoyed reading Oi! Get off our Train. We had lots of interesting ideas and great discussion about why some animals are becoming endangered and used these to write our own version of the story. We were also able to sequence events and retell the story. Here are some pictures of one group using actions to retell the story. It was very fun to watch!

We have really enjoyed learning about weight and capacity in numeracy this term. We have used different methods of measurement and recorded our results. We even created our own bar charts. It was very fun (and messy) working with sand and water!
