Welcome to Year 1E



Welcome back to Summer 2! The final half term before the summer holidays. I am so pleased to see everybody back and we are all refreshed and ready for what will be a very busy half term .


I will be in regular contact using Class dojo and I will use this to let you know what the children have been doing in class.


Please can I encourage all children to be in school for 8.45am. We start lessons straight away and the children are missing out on learning if they arrive late. School finishes at 3.05pm





We will be reading a reading a range of non fiction books about Pengiuns including The Emporer's Egg by Martin Jenkins and a great book about Polar Bears called Leaf by Sandra Dieckmann.


Phonics and Guided Reading


We will be having daily phonic lessons linked to phase 5c and consolidation of phase 5a and b as well as one to one reading and guided reading sessions.





This half term our focus will be on:


  • Multiplication and Division

    Identify equal groups and begin to add equal groups.

    Organise objects into equal rows in order to begin counting equal numbers efficiently.

    Divide even numbers into equal groups using concrete and to be able to determine how many groups will be created from sharing equally


    Recognise, find and name a half as one of two equal parts of an object, shape or quantity.

    Recognise, find and name a quarter as one of four equal parts of an object, shape or quantity.

    Place Value

    Children will recognise and compare numbers to 100 and recognise tens and ones


We will also be learning foundation subjects: Geography, Science, Art, Music, PE, RE, RSE and Computing. Please see the Medium Term Plan below for more details.


 Home Reading Books


Reading books will continue to be changed every Friday. Please ensure that books are returned and in school on this day. It is important that your child reads every day. This can be done independently or with the help of an adult or older sibling. Please also ask the children questions about their book to check their understanding.




Spellings will be linked to our phonics focus. They will be sent out every Friday to be returned the following Wednesday. 


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to come and ask me.
