Summer Term 2022.

Welcome back to another busy term! As always, you completely blew me away with how hard you worked last term. I am looking forward to seeing the progress you make this term.


This term our topic is ‘Treasure’. We will start our topic by thinking about journeys and famous explorers and during the second half of the term we will find out about Pirates!


In English, we use a writing cycle to help us become super writers. We start with a have a go write and, after our sequence of learning, a show what you know write! The genres we are covering this term are linked to our theme. We will be studying letters, a diary entry and poetry.


In Maths, we will be focusing on multiplication and division, fractions, addition and subtraction within 20, shape, length and height, place value to 100 and money and time.


In science we will be learning about the plants and trees that grow in our surrounding area and look at the four seasons.


All children have a daily phonics session. This helps children to read and spell words. You child will bring a reading book and diary home with them each night. Please help them by reading with them each night. More information on helping your child learn to read can be found here here



Year 1 Phonics Check.

Children in Stiperstones will take the phonics screening check after half term.  The phonics screening check is taken individually by all children in Year 1 in England. It is designed to give teachers and parents/carers information on how children are progressing in phonics.

It will help to identify whether a child needs additional support at this stage so that they do not fall behind in this vital early reading skill. 

The check is made up of 40 words, and usually lasts 5-10 minutes. Some words are real words, and others are nonsense, or ‘alien’ words. This is to show if pupils can work out how to decode words they haven’t seen before. 

More information on the phonics check can be found here


As a school, we use VIPERS skills to help us understand what we are reading. More information can be found in their home school link book or here


P.E is on a Tuesday and Friday. Children will need a white t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps. If you child wears tights, please put a pair of socks in their bag.

If you child has pierced ears and can not remove the studs then please send your child with surgical tape or plasters so that the studs can be covered during PE.
