Term 6

Term 6!

The year has whizzed past, and we are starting our final term in Year 1! It’s another busy one, full of exciting new learning, trips and school events!

The theme for our final term is,

4 Corners: We are 1!


This term Geography is our focus. We will be answering the question, What makes the United Kingdom a special place? We be looking at the four countries of the United Kingdom and their capital cities as well as identifying and learning the names of the seas that surround our country. We will go on to learn about some of the iconic human and physical features of the U.K. as well as seasonal weather patterns.


Our work in English this term is inspired by the book ‘The Last Wolf’ by Mini Grey. This super twist on Little Red Riding Hood is both humorous and thought provoking. Once the Owls have fully explored and enjoyed the text we will go on to analyse how the story has been written and write our own version of a hunting narrative. Throughout the unit we will consolidate our understanding of how to write varied and exciting sentences and continue to build on our knowledge of spelling conventions.


We have an exciting new challenge to complete in our Design and Technology unit of learning this term! The Owls will be designing and creating a new piece of play equipment for our heroine Red’s park. We will start by exploring our local park, identifying and analysing the equipment and then designing and creating a new piece of equipment. Through this unit we will learn ways to join different materials.


In Maths, we will learn about numbers up to 100 and the concept of place value. We will go on to learn about money: how to recognise different coins and notes as well as how to use our knowledge of counting in 1s, 2s, 5s and 10s to count coins. To end the term we will learn how to describe the passage of time (before and after, the days of the week and months of the year) as well as how to read analogue clocks to the nearest hour and half hour.


In Science we will be finishing off our learning about the four seasons, focusing on summer.


In RE, we will be thinking about the question, What makes some places sacred to believers? We will think about places that are important or special to us and then look at special places of worship for Christians and Muslims.


This term PE days will remain on a Monday and a Tuesday. The Owls will continue to learn simple athletic skills and actions such as running, throwing and jumping and applying these to a range of activities. Please come to school wearing your PE kit on these days and remember to make sure that this is suitable for the weather conditions as whenever possible PE will take place outside.
