Welcome to the YR Summer Term  overview webpage


Can you hear the roar of the dinosaur!  This half term we will be going back in time and exploring the land of the dinosaurs. A mysterious package will be arriving from the Natural History Museum – perhaps a special egg to look after. What will it hatch into we wonder? We will use all these exciting events to spark our writing about these formidable creatures. 


In phonics we will revise our Phase 3 letter sounds and spot these long vowel digraphs and trigraphs when reading. We will be moving onto Phase 4 sounds and continue to practise blending and segmenting for reading and writing. 

In Maths we will be using place value and ordering to help us solve addition and subtraction problems.  We will be using counting on and back to problem solve. In Shapes, Space and Measures we will be learning about money and value, using coins to solve addition problems.  We will also be learning how to follow and give instructions using positional and directional vocabulary.    

In Understanding of the World we will be talking about timelines and the concept of ‘extinction’and investigating habitats that dinosaurs would have lived in. 


In PE we will continue to work on our control and co-ordination using different equipment and learning how to use these skills in games.  

In Art we will be drawing scales and skins and exploring the work of the artist Matisse and copying his collage and cutting artwork. 

In Music we will be learning some Al Start songs 

In PSED we will be finding ways to think about our wellbeing and keep our brains healthy. 

 In Computing we will be using different ways to show our work – text, photo, recording sound and video. 

As always, underpinning all subject areas is Communication and Language whereby we will be practising to express ourselves and continue to expand our vocabulary based on all the new learning we will be immersed in.
