Summer 2


This term our Topic is 'By the Seaside'


We will be writing instructions on lots of fun activities like how to build a sandcastle, or how to make a disgusting sandwich for the seagulls in 'The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch."


Look at our photos from when the beach came to the Brilliant Beeches!

The children are doing really well with their writing but please help them improve by practicing handwriting and spelling at home.


How do we make our writing super in year one? We make sure we include capital letters, full stops and finger spaces!

In maths we will be learning about mass, volume and space. We will be practicing measuring the mass of objects and comparing and describing different masses. We will also be estimating the volume and capacity of containers.

In topic this half-term we are learning all about the Victorian Seaside and the difference between then and now. We will be learning how to make movable fairground rides in DT.


We will also be going on a Year 1 trip to Clumber park!

P.E will be on a Monday and Wednesday afternoon. Please ensure your child has a correct P.E. kit in school so that we can do PE outside in the lovely summer weather (white t-shirt, black shorts and sport shoes).


Please can you make you read with your child at least three times a week and write it in their reading journal to help towards their 'Red-Ted' award.
