Year 1 Learning Narrative – Summer Term 2017: Animal Antics

As the weather warms up and the children return back from their Easter break they find mysterious looking footprints scattered over the concrete.
Who do they belong to?
What are they doing here?
Where are they now?
So we begin our summer term discovering what antics animals get up to.
During History lessons we will be learning about Charles Darwin and why he is of significance to the animal kingdom.

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 2017: Twisted Tales

In our final term of the year, the children will be learning about Twisted Tales. They will be reading a different story each week of a traditional tale with a twist to it. 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 will be taking the children to the park for a picnic and a trip to the beach to make a piece of artwork with our findings.
