Summer Second Half Term Curriculum

There are lots of exciting things to look forward to in Year 1 this half term. Please click here to see our Summer Term Overview.

Chrome Books

The children in Year 1 will be using individual chrome books this term and they will have the option to take them home to practice their reading (see below) and any other aspects of their learning such as practicing their typing. We expect the children to look after the chrome books and return them to school daily fully charged.



Children are expected to read at home as much as possible. This is essential to help develop their love of reading. Each week your child will be sent an ebook that they can read independently. They will also bring home a ‘sharing book’ that they can listen to, talk about and enjoy with an adult. Children who read at home will receive 5 dojos which they can spend at the end of each term. They will also receive a raffle ticket for our reading raffle. The reading raffle will be drawn every week with a small prize to be won. Any child who has received a raffle ticket every week will also be awarded a prize at the end of every half term.


The children will receive a list of spellings to learn each week. Any child who completes their spellings will receive 5 dojos.


By the end of Year 1 Children are expected to be able to count forwards and backwards to 100 from any number and be able to say one more or less than a number. Please practise this at home using the 100 square provided.
