Year 1 Learning Narrative – Summer Term 2018

The children return after the Easter holidays with a special memory box to start filling objects unique to them. Over the half term they will go back in time to learn about being a child in different time periods. They will explore different types of texts and learn how to write some for themselves. The classes will have a go at creating their own time line of all their birth dates. We will finish with a year group visit to the park to add another memory to our box to conclude our topic.

To see what the children will be learning, please click here to view the Year 1 English Curriculum or here to view the Year 1 maths curriculum. Details regarding other subject lessons can be viewed in our Foundation Subjects document.

At White Meadows Primary we use the Read Write Inc. phonics programme across both Key Stages up to Year 3. This phonics scheme provides a systematic approach to literacy, both reading and writing, which is fun and engaging. This is supplemented with the use of phonetically decodable books from Oxford Reading Tree and the Phonic Bug schemes, along with a range of other texts. Further details on how you can support your child can be found on the Read Write Inc. website.
In addition to the above programme, we also use the Big Write and Big Maths schemes and Little Big Maths in Foundation Stage.

Year 2 Learning Narrative – Summer Term 2018: Twisted Tales

In our final term of the year, the children will be learning about Twisted Tales. They will be reading a different story most weeks of a traditional tale with a twist to it and then moving on to looking at different Roald Dahl books to extend the children’s vocabulary. We aim to support the children with improving their comprehension of what they have read in preparation for their SATs tests at the end of May. We will be revising a number of topics in maths to ensure the children have a secure understanding of number and are able to apply this to different problems. For a fabulous finish for this topic and year, we hope to visit Arundel castle to look at the gardens as part of our science topic and link it with our story writing in English. We will also be making chocolate as part of reading Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
