Starlings and Goldfinches

Welcome to Year 1 at Kestrel Way. Please find below information about your child's learning topics this half term, including learning logs and topic leaflets. Please see our specific class pages for photos and information about each classes individual learning journeys.


Our Summer 1 topic is 'Trains, Planes and Automobiles'. In English we will be learning about different modes of transport and their history to producing information texts. We will also be writing our own stories based on 'Mr Gumpy's outing' and producing adverts for 'Mrs Armitage's Bikes'. In Maths we will begin to look at multiplication, division and basic fractions. In our computing lessons we will be using the internet to find out about different modes of transport and our Science lessons will be focusing on the seasons and different kind of weather. We are all very excited about our trip to Milton Keynes Museum on Thursday 10th May and we will then finish our topic with a Fab Finish on the 24th May. 

Please support your child by listening to them read at home as often as possible. If they read four or more times in a week they will achieve their clover award.

You will also notice that on the topic leaflet we have included our Maths fluency focus for this half term, it would be fantastic if these could be practiced and talked about at home too!

Thank you for your continued support. If it any time you have any questions please speak to your child's class teacher.
