Summer Term

Welcome to the Summer Term! We are very much looking forward to continuing the great work the children have been dong and sharing this with you and your child over the coming months.  We have an exciting and busy term ahead of us, and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to speak to us.


In our Literacy lessons we will be concentrating on our applying our phonic knowledge that has been taught in our Read Write Inc sessions. We will learn how to say a sentence and listen to the sounds in words. The children will learn how to hold a sentence in their heads and apply their knowledge of sounds to write simple words and sentences.  The children will have the opportunity to write in many different forms and genres, for example,lists, labeling, stories, facts etc. We will focus on ensuring the children can write simple sentences using capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. 


This term we will continue using Power Maths resources to help us recognise numbers 1-20 and their values. We will use number tracks to count on and back from a given number and we will also learn how to double, halve and share numbers and amounts. We will look for numerical patterns and recognise odd and even numbers. 

The children will learn to recognise 2D and 3D shapes and talk about their properties , as well as using shapes in pictures and patterns. 

We will investigate weight, capacity and time, as well applying the correct vocabulary. 

Understanding of the World:

This term we will be learning about past and present events, We will use simple maps and locate places on simple maps and globes. 

The children will discuss lives now and the lives of people in the past - this links with our topic about pirates and the seaside.

We will also be thinking about different materials in the environment and sorting and experimenting with these.

The children will continue to learn about the different seasons with the focus being on Summer this half term.

 Expressive Arts and Design:

The children will have the opportunity to use a variety of materials in order to be creative and represent their own ideas using paint, collage and junk modelling.

They will also experiment with instruments and the different sounds they make.

The children will take part in weekly music sessions, singing and experimenting with sounds.

Several role play and small world opportunities will be provide for the children.


Ways you can help your child:

  • The children will continue to bring a reading book and reading record home once a week. Please read with your child at home and record how you feel they have read.
  • Reception have their P.E lessons on a Friday. Please ensure your child has their full P.E kit on this day (white t-shirt, black shorts, black pumps).
