                    Summer 1

This half term our theme is Mad about Minibeasts where we will be exploring the weather change and seasons as part of our Science learning. We will also be looking at Art, Computing and Music. We are going to be learning about the famous artist Andy Goldsworthy, creating a structure, looking at search engines and playing untuned instruments. 

PE in Summer 1 will be on Fridays.

This term we will be focusing on the book The Enormous Turnip. We will be discovering setting descriptions, writing in role of a character, combining sentences together to write a short narrative and producing a non-chronological report, remembering to always use our Year 1 writing techniques including capital letters, full stops and finger spaces.



This term we will be looking at numbers 0-100. We will use various maths manipulatives including part-whole models, cubes, number lines, 10 frames and counters to support us with addition and subtraction sums. We are going to introduce using tens and ones to represent different numbersm as well as using this to look at greater than and less than. We will then move onto a new topic of recognising coins and will be using maths coins to aid our learning for this.


Our main theme for curriculum this term is Mad about Minibeasts. The main driver for this theme is Science. We will be investigating the different seasons, changes in the weather and what impact this has on plants.

Themed reading week and Diversity Day. We have enjoyed looking at the book Handa's surprise and learning all about Kenya. We made our own fruit salad and learnt an African dance.

Where Everyone Belongs

At Djanogly Sherwood we know that things are challenging and different right now we wanted to help by sharing some good resources. Here is a video you could watch and share with yoru children explaining how to talk to children and race and diversity. We will also be sharing lessons on Seesaw through some great books about diversity. We hope that this helps. Remember our strap line at Sherwood is 'Where everyone belongs'.
