Core Texts 

Summer Term 

Each half term we explore a topic that is based around two core texts. Below you will find the name of the topic and the two core texts that we will be exploring in class. We will be using Talk 4 Writing to retell and recall the core texts through actions and story maps.

Summer 1 - Castles Summer 2 - Seaside




Homework will be set on a Friday at the end of the school day, via Google Classroom. It needs to be handed in by 9am the following Friday. 
Homework Year 1 Pupils will recieve

  • Spellings 
  • Maths 
  • Reading 5 times a week at home 


Please note a change to our PE day (Summer Term)

Children in Barn Owl Class will have their PE session on a Thursday afternoon. Please bring your child to school dressed in thier PE kits on a Monday, starting from 13th September 2021. Please ensure that their PE kit is suitable for the weather as PE will be outside where possible. 
Long hair must be tied back and earrings must be removed. 


Forest School 

Forest School will be on a Tuesday afternoon for Barn Owl Class and will be lead by Miss Gray. Where possible, we will be using the Millennium Green to carry out our forest school sessions. The forest school sessions will be slightly more structed than previously and will often link to science teaching.
Children are to come into school on a Tuesday with bottoms that are suitable for forest school such as tracksuit bottoms or leggings. Please wear school uniform on top half where possible – such as school jumper or cardigan.
Forest School will take place in all weather so please ensure the appropriate outer wear is in school on that day



Below is Barn Owl Class Timetable. Please note that during the first half term there will be opportunities for children to explore the provision and learn through play, whilst structed activities in small groups occur.
