Term 2 Learning

Welcome back Year 1s. WOW what an amazing first term we had.


Our topic this term is 'Fantastic beasts'. I wonder whether you can come up with any ideas on what you think we might be looking at?



Our English learning this term will be focused around the book 'The train ride' by June Crebbin.

Hannah (Oxford, The United Kingdom)'s review of The Train Ride

We will be using this book as a stimulus when writing our own stories. We will be focusing on using capital letters at the beginning of a sentence and for a name, full stops at the end of a sentence, spaces between words so it can be read back and becoming more independent in our writing. We will also be focusing on applying our phase 3 sounds and common exception words, we are also focusing on our presentation and handwriting, always trying to write on the line. We are happy if the children write in print and not cursive - do what is natural to them.


Reading and Phonics

This term in Phonics we will be focusing on Phase 5 phonemes which are alternative graphemes. We will be applying these in 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.



In Maths we will be learning:

  • To understand addition and subtract as combining 2 sets of objects and write addition/subtraction sentences.
  • Naming and describing 2D and 3D shapes
  • Place Value to 20

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!
