Summer 2 - Coral Reef

The Seaside


This half term we will be learning mental health and emotional well being, friendship and water safety. At the end of this half term, some pupils will visit the seaside at Filey so they will be able to apply the life skills that they have learnt throughout this half term. Pupils will also be developing their own emotional literacy and behaviour by taking part in sessions that suit the needs of individuals. Coral Reef are focussing on the areas, motivation and self regulation.


In English we will be practising our independent sentence writing around the theme of the seaside. We will write postcards, lists and letters. We will also continue to practice our reading, by reading 1:1 and as a whole group daily. Our daily phonics sessions will be focussed on the phonics phases for each pupil. As well as this, we will also be writing some descriptive pieces using adjectives, conjunctions and punctuation correctly.


In maths this half term we will be continuing to learn about place value. Pupils working within the year one curriculum will focus on numbers within 20, 50 and 100. Pupils will continue to embed and develop their number fluency by adding and subtracting numbers in a variety of ways. We will also be learning about time. Pupils will learn how to sequence and organise time and use the vocabulary, morning, midday, evening etc. They will also be taught how to read the time at o’clock and half past on an analogue clock.


In science this half term we will be learning about plants. We will learn to identify, name and describe plants and will be growing our own plants, flowers and salad vegetables.


During geography this half term, we will be focusing on Towns and Cities in the UK. We will learn about the human and physical features of them, including Filey and the lifestyle and activities of people that live and visit there. At the end of the half term some pupils will visit Filey as part of our enrichment curriculum.
