Welcome to 1C and 1R


Curriculum - Summer term 1


This half-term we will be looking at weight and mass for the first time. Children will compare different weights using non-standard forms of measurement and will solve mathematical problems using scales and different objects. Children will then move onto capacity and

volume where they will again use non-standard forms of measurement to compare and solve a variety of problems.


During this half-term we will also look at multiplication and division, carrying on from where we left off counting in 2s, 5s and 10s. We will make objects into equal groups and then share these groups

and use arrays to help us see the patterns in number. Fractions come next and children will learn what is a whole, and how to halve and quarter objects and numbers.




Our core text this half term is called ‘Man on the Moon’.


We will be writing an information text about Neil Armstrong. We will be finding out information using different sources and collating this into an information text. Also we will be writing a biography about Neil Armstrong looking at his background and why he is famous. Lastly, we will be creating postcards.


These are some of the key sills we will be teaching in writing:

  • Using a capital letter to start a sentence.
  • Forming our letters correctly.
  • Writing on the line.
  • Finger spaces.
  • Full stops.
  • Joining words and clauses with ‘and’ and ‘because’
  • Using bullet points.

In Reading Pupils will be taught to:

  • apply phonic knowledge and skills as the route to decode words
  • read aloud accurately books that are consistent with their developing phonic knowledge and that do not require them to use other strategies to work out words
  • re-read these books to build up their fluency and confidence in word reading
  • talk about and answer questions about what they have read
  • recognise tricky or ‘common exception words’
