C of E Primary School

Summer 1

Summer 1

Hello and welcome back to Summer 1. Here's some information about what we will be getting up to.


Our overall theme is 'The Great Outdoors'.


Read Write Inc.



In maths we will be learning how to tell the time to the hour, half past and quarter past and how to identify and represent numbers to 100 using practical equipment. We will be finding one more/one less and ten more/ten less than a number and adding a one digit number to a two digit number. We will be rehearsing number facts such as number bonds to 20 and doubles and halves. We will also be solving one-step problems.



Our Science unit is plants. We will learn about the different parts of a plant and learn the names of common plants. We will plant some of our own plants and work scientifically by observing and describing changes in investigations.



In Geography we are learning about our local area. We will be thinking about what our school building is like and the surrounding local area. What do we like/dislike about our local area and how can we improve it. We will also do a local area walk to identify key features of our local area.



In DT we will be learning how to make a fruit salad. We will learn about the different parts of fruits and vegetables, where they grow and which part is eaten. We will explore existing recipes and use our senses to taste and describe different fruits. We will learn how to peel and chop fruits and then design and make our own fruit salads.



In RE we will be learning about Baptism. The key questions we will be thinking about are:

  • What does it mean to ‘belong?’
  • What is baptism?  Why are some people baptised?
  • Why is baptism special?
  • What is a promise? Where is it kept? How is it kept?
  • What makes you feel as if you are part of God’s family?
  • How do people of faith welcome new babies?



In computing we will be using logical reasoning to predict the behaviour of simple programs. We will explore options in simple simulations and in a paint package, making choices to achieve an outcome.



In Music we will be doing another Charanga unit where we will continue to learn about rhythm and pulse through different games and will learn and perform a new song.



In PE, we will be learning the skills of rolling and kicking and will also do some outdoor and adventure activities using maps, following trails and doing team problem solving activities.
