Science-  Our topic is ‘Animals including humans’ the children will identify and name a variety of common animals including fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals. They will identify and name a variety of common animals that are carnivores, herbivores and omnivores. Then name, draw and label the basic parts of the human body and say which part of the body is associated with each sense.

ICT-  Our topic is ‘Let’s Create’ Children begin to explore digital texts, using varied devices and software to create digital content.  They investigate differences between input and output and hardware and software.  They explore the idea of a network related to computers at home and school, logging on to their area with support. They use unplugged computing approaches to explore the devices they use.

History- In History the topic is ‘Ourselves’ the children will look into changes in their lives, families and others.

Geography- In Geography we will be looking at ‘Journeys’ through distance, fieldwork and developing observational skills and reading maps.

Music- In Music the children will be uses voices expressively and creatively by singing songs, speaking chants and rhymes.

PE- In PE we will cover yoga, aerobics and our dance is linked to Christmas.

Jigsaw- In Jigsaw we will be looking at  ‘Being Me in My World’ firstly, we will establish our classes and will be doing much of the; welcoming, class social bonding and getting to know each other, introducing the new systems, expectations and routines.

Swift Summer Term Overview 

 

Summer Term!Each week we will be updating our blog to give you information about the coming week and important dates to remember. This blog post tells you about the term ahead and what your children will be learning.

Maths: This term children will be learning more about number and place value, they should be able to read and write numbers to 100 in numerals and to 20 in words, order numbers to 50, find one more and one less and solve problems involving all of the above. Measurement– mass, 2D and 3D shapes, counting and money, multiplication– add one digit and two digit numbers to 20 and recall all use of doubles and halves of numbers to 10, division– subtract one and two digit numbers to 20. We will also focus on problem solving to further the develop their investigative skills.

English: We will be focusing on various aspects of English including speaking and listening, poetry, fiction, non-fiction and storytelling. We will be improving our reading and comprehension skills through discussion, shared, guided and independent activities. Through our lessons, we will be developing our grammar and punctuation. With support the children will begin to edit and redraft their writing.

Phonics: Reception children will move from Phase 3 to Phase 4 phonics, children will, among other things:

• Practice reading and spelling CVCC words (‘such,’ ‘belt,’ ‘milk’ etc)

• Practice reading and spelling high frequency words

• Practice reading and writing sentences

• Learn more tricky words, including ‘have,’ ‘like,’ ‘some,’ ‘little’

In Phase 5 Year 1 Children learn new graphemes (different ways of spelling each sound) and alternative pronunciations for these: for example, learning that the grapheme ‘ow’ makes a different sound in ‘snow’ and ‘cow’. They should become quicker at blending, and start to do it silently. They learn about split digraphs (the ‘magic e’) such as the a-e in ‘name.’ They’ll start to choose the right graphemes when spelling, and will learn more tricky words, including ‘people,’ ‘water’ and ‘friend’. They also learn one new phoneme: /zh/, as in ‘treasure.’ The Year 1 children will take part in ‘Phonic Screening’ in June.

Science: Children will identify and name a variety of common wild and garden plants, including trees. Thorough this topic, the children will identify, name and draw the main parts of a range of plants. Children will grow their own flowers and vegetables from seed & harvest the food to eat! We will incorporate appropriate vocabulary within this topic and take part in investigations, using our prediction skills. We will also be taking in part in Forest School and visiting the school garden.

Jigsaw PSHE: Relationships has a wide focus, looking at diverse topics such as families, friendships, pets and animals, and love and loss. A vital part of this Puzzle is about safeguarding and keeping children safe; this links to cyber safety; children learn how to deal with conflict, their own strengths and self-esteem. They have the chance to explore roles and responsibilities in families, and look at stereotypes. All Jigsaw lessons are delivered in an age- and stage-appropriate way so that they meet children’s needs. Changing Me: deals with change of many types, from growing from young to old, becoming a teenager, assertiveness, self-respect and safeguarding. Self and body image and accepting change are diverse subjects for children to explore. We will think about looking ahead and moving year groups.

Computing: This unit introduces children to the principles of coding, using age-appropriate software. This will encourage basic understanding of algorithms and how to create precise instructions for visual working programs. It begins to develop a sense of creating, debugging and logical reasoning, which are required for further programming at KS2. Through this we will be continuing to embed the importance of E-Safety.

PE: We will be developing our ball and racquet skills through the sports of tennis, football followed by a heptathlon unit practising the various disciplines of Jessica Ennis

Art: Through different mediums we will be learning the artistic skills of sewing, weaving and using clay and collage. We will be further developing our observational skills and reflecting and evaluating our own and the art of others’

Design Technology: Children will discuss the bakery where the fire started and why it started so easily. They talk about and what a bakery is. They will bake cakes based on the recipe used by Farrinor and then bake their own bread, learning about the role of each ingredient.

Music: In this unit pupils, will learn to sing the nursery rhyme London’s Burning and compose music using tuned and untuned instruments on the theme of The Great Fire of London. Children will practise singing ‘London’s Burning’ in a round and using dynamics. They notate their compositions and decide how to organise their performance

RE: We will be focusing on special places around the school, special places to people in the community and which place is special and holy to the local community. We will do this through asking questions discussion of what is special to us and what ‘special’ means.

History: Children will learn about the Great Fire of London. Through this topic, we are going to recognise why events happened and what happened as a result. We will identify differences between ways of life at different times. Through this topic, we are going to recognise why people did things. We will find out about past from a range of sources.

Geography: In this unit pupils, will learn to identify daily weather patterns in the United Kingdom. Locate the UK on a map. Find and name the countries in the UK. Use simple compass directions. Locate London and know it is a capital city.

French: Through songs, role-play and games the children will learn simple words and phrases to complement our topics.

The choir will provide a valuable opportunity for the children to develop their vocal technique and build confidence in their abilities, gaining knowledge of music theory and performance skills and, most of all, to enjoy singing together.

 

Please sign up now on the School Gateway!

 

Can you help with the choir?

We are looking for a volunteer piano/keyboard accompanist for occasional rehearsals and termly concerts.

We would also like to hear from any parents who want to help with the choir in other ways, whether by supporting children’s engagement during rehearsals, contributing ideas or helping to organise concerts – no musical experience necessary.

They’ll start to choose the right graphemes when spelling, and will learn more tricky words, including ‘people,’ ‘water’ and ‘friend’. They also learn one new phoneme: /zh/, as in ‘treasure.’

Science: Children will learn to name and identify everyday materials and have the opportunity to explore these materials. The children will also carry out a simple investigation to help decide on the most suitable material for an everyday object.

Jigsaw PSHE: Hope and Dreams. to share our hopes and dreams and discuss and plan ways we can achieve these using a growth mindset approach to tackling a challenge. Then after half term the topic will be Healthy Me, discussing being healthy inside and out 

Computing: We will be looking at data handling this term and pictograms. The children will be learning to recognise familiar programmes and devices and say what these can and can’t do, alongside e-safety.

PE: We will be developing our throwing and catching skills using various objects. We will be jumping, landing and balancing. We will be showing rhythm in our dance and creating simple moves and linking movements into a sequence.

Art: Through studying art linked to ‘weather’ the children will experiment with a variety of media; pencils, rubbers, crayons, pastels, felt tips, charcoal, ballpoints, chalk. They will also create, select and use textured paper for an image.

Design Technology: Through our Transport topic we will be exploring Mechanisms Sliders and Levers Structures and how they can help us in everyday life.

Music: In this unit pupils, will learn to be able to use voices and sing songs and chants, to explore rhythms of words, to perform rhythms to a given beat from a score and to recall and perform rhythm patterns to a steady beat.

RE: What is happening in the natural world in spring? The children will experience aspects of the natural world, develop their sense of enquiry and curiosity in the world around them. They will study Muslim Creation stories along with the Christian festival of Easter.

History: Children will explore many different forms of transport. They understand how transport has changed over time, and begin to develop a chronology of automobiles, trains and space travel. They then explore the history of space travel, recognising significant events such as the first man to orbit the earth, the first space walk and the moon landings.

Geography: In this unit pupils, will learn to identify seasonal and daily weather patterns in the United Kingdom and the location of hot and cold areas of the world in relation to the Equator and the North and South Poles.

French: Through songs and games the children will learn simple words and phrases to describe weather and clothes.
