Summer Term – A different world…
Our Summer term theme is ‘A different world’ where we will be looking at embracing new opportunities and challenging ourselves through our learning. We will be using our inspirational text to explore and develop our understanding of these aspects we face as we enter a new chapter in our learning journey at Gorsey Bank. Our inspirational text this term is ‘Man on the Moon (a day in the life of Bob) which will facilitate all our new learning.
This will give us fantastic opportunities to develop cross curricular links with other subject areas in particular Maths where we will be developing our number, multiplication and place value skills using a wide range of manipulatives to help with our counting. In English through exploring the space theme we shall be building on our descriptive writing skills, poetry and performance skills. Science is extremely exciting this term as we shall be looking at Plants and including a range of investigations to support our understanding. Our text this term enables us to develop our history skills by looking at the history of space travel and much, much more within the Foundation subjects.
There will be lots of exciting learning going on in Year 1 this term, please follow us on Twitter to keep up to date with our adventures.
