Fenton Community Primary School, Haverfordwest, Wales

Year 1

Topic

Our next topic will be ‘Splendid Skies’. Let’s put on our coats, pop up our brollies and investigate the weather. This half term, we’ll take a walk outdoors to find out about different types of weather and to look for signs of the seasons. We’ll study TV weather reports, make weather symbols and learn about the life and work of Sir Francis Beaufort. Creative opportunities will allow us to explore weather in works of art and seasonal music! We’ll compose weather poems and write postcards describing the weather in different places. We will record and broadcast weather reports, perform weather songs and music and describe our ideal holiday destinations.

How to help your child prepare for their project:

 Weather is wonderful! Why not go for a walk and observe the weather? Take photographs and make notes of interesting observations. Alternatively, study a weather app together to see how symbols are used to show the weather over the coming days. You could also fly a kite in the park on different days to find out which conditions are best for kite flying!

Language:

We will be focusing on recounts, poetry, instructions, postcards and reports. We will be talking, reading and writing about the weather in Welsh.

Maths:

We will be working on measuring, addition and subtraction and counting in 2s, 5s and 10s.

Knowledge and Understanding of the World:

Seasonal changes, weather patterns, Sir Francis Beaufort.

Creative:

Painting and collage, weather sounds and songs, Eisteddfod songs, dance.

Reading:

We carry out a variety of reading activities every week during Guided-Reading and Read Write Inc. sessions. These texts are different and additional to the books your child brings home to read. We would appreciate it if you could read with your child a few times a week at home and leave a comment in their reading record. Please ensure your child’s reading book and record are in school every day. Children can earn Dojo points for bringing their book bags to school every day.
