For the Summer 2 Half Term, in geography, we will be learning about the area we live in, identifying farms and exploring what happens on different types of farm.  Children will be able to use a map and symbols to navigate around a farm too.  The rest of our curriculum is looking as exciting as ever, including designing and making a structure to replace the Lickey Hills monument; studying some amazing animals and grouping them according to their characteristics in science, with a trip to Dudley zoo; and throwing and catching in PE.

Spellings will posted on Monday evening to practice at home before a 'spelling quiz' on the following Monday. Current spellings can be found online on the link to the right. Maths fluency questions are likewise set on Wednesday and due back by the following Monday. We also strongly encourage the children to read at least three times a week at home.

Please make sure you have your PE kits in school for our sporting activities: Year 1 have PE and Games for 1MK on Monday and Thursday; 1HB on Monday and Friday. Please send your child to school in their kit on their PE day - all PE lessons will be outdoors (weather permitting) and you may wish to consider your child having a tracksuit for the day. Please make sure all earrings are removed or covered with tape before school on these days.
