Year 1 Curriculum Letter Summer Term 2018


In year 1 we have been looking at poetry. We have been studying a book called ‘Poems to Perform’ by Julia Donaldson. We read a poem called ‘The rhythm of life’ by Michael Rosen. We looked closely at the pattern of this poem and managed to identify repetition, rhyme and rhythm in it. We recited this poem and added actions. Here is a video of us performing this poem as a whole class. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

This term we have been looking at plants in our topic lessons. We planted our very own sunflower seeds. We also invited a special visitor to help us re-pot them into the planters in front of the school. We are looking forward to seeing them grow into beautiful sunflowers in the coming weeks.
