Term 5 Learning

Hello and welcome to Year 1

In term 5 our topic is 'Great Fire of London' 



Our class texts this term will be based around the story ‘Vlad and the Great Fire of London’.

Vlad and the Great Fire of London planning for literacy diary writing |  Teaching Resources

We will be using this book as a stimulus when writing our own stories. We will be continuing on the importance of capital letters at the beginning of a sentence and for a name, as well as full stops at the end of a sentence. We will be making sure we are putting spaces between words so it can be read back and become more independent in our writing. We are also focusing on our presentation and handwriting, ensuring our letters are formed correctly. We will be focusing on applying all our Phase 2, Phase 3 and Phase 5 phonemes to our words and spelling our common exception words correctly. We will also be continuing to use 'because' and 'and' in our sentences and beginning to use this to list.



Reading and Phonics

This term in Phonics we will be consolidating all our Phase 5 phonemes.

We will be continuing to apply all our reading and also including comprehension questions to make sure we are understanding what we are reading fully. Children will have a reading book matched to their phonics ability for you to read at home. They will also have a word box which links to the phonic sounds they need to practice. Please engage in the whole school reading challenge. We expect every child to read at home at least 5 times a week.


We will be covering the objectives of:

  • Multiplication
  • Division
  • Fractions
  • Place Value to 100
  • Money
  • Time

Core knowledge such as number bonds to 20, counting in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s continues to be consolidated. Maths planets will continue and stickers and badges will be given out on a Friday.

How can you help at home?

- Listen to your child read 5x a week. Discuss the story with them and make sure you write in their reading record every time they read so that it can count towards our Reading Bug challenge! 


Practise your child's maths planets with them. There is the overview below and we can let you know what level they are on.
