Our Summer 1 theme is ‘India’.Tourism Information: Tourist Attractions in India


Our focus texts for this term will be the ‘Dogs don’t do Ballet’ and ‘Where the Forest meets the Sea’.

This term we are also having a big focus on our phonics in preparation for the Phonics Screening test after half term.



Multiplication plays a big part in our learning this half term, as well as beginning to understanding the    inverse of division/ sharing equally. We will be learning how to use arrays effectively to show understanding  of what ‘times table’ actually means.

We will also be learning about position and direction, looking at clockwise and anticlockwise as well as full, half and quarter turns. 



This term’s topic is Plants. We will learn to identify common and wild plants, as well as whether a tree is evergreen or deciduous. We are hoping to grow sunflowers in class, and hold an experiment to find out what plants need to survive. We will discover the main parts of a flower and learn how to describe what their functions are as part of that plant.


Here is our overview for this term’s theme – Topic Overview India


Spelling tests will continue this half term. Paper copies will be sent home on Fridays in preparation for the following week, along with phonics practise.
