Yellow Class - Summer Term 2
Read Write Inc: Children will be assessed upon returning to school and put into reading ability groups. Pupils will do a speed sound lesson each day and read a text three times on separate occasions. The more frequently your child reads at home, the quicker they will progress through the Read, Write, Inc levels and become a fluent reader. Pupils are assessed every six weeks or more frequently if we feel they need moving on to the next level.
English: This year we will be implementing teaching a separate English lesson alongside RWI. This term we are focusing on writing instructions based on the story ‘How to train a train’. Please help your child at home by reminding them to use capital letters, finger spaces, full stops and also remind them to check that their sentences make sense by practicing them orally.
Maths: In Maths, we will be moving onto time, multiplication and division, statistics and calculation, measurement and sorting and sequencing. We will then assess and review at the end of the term. Please continue to support your child at home with the homework tasks.
Science: In Science we will be continuing to learn about plants and their basic structure. We will identify and name a variety of plants and explore the job of each part of the plant including trees. We will also study the season of Summer.
Geography: In Geography we will begin our unit ‘UK countries and capital cities’. We will be exploring the different countries in the UK and the capital cities. We will explore the flags and landmarks associated with each country.
RE: In RE, we will learn about what Christians believe God is like. Yellow class will focus on exploring how religion plays an important role in the lives of some people and also how Christians might think of God in different ways.
DT: In DT we will continue to explore fruit salads. We will focus on hygiene, preparing and following recipes in order to make our very own fruit salad.
