Summer Term (2) 2024

Summer (2nd half) term 2024 


This half term we will be working on writing to entertain (poetry)

In English, we will be learning a poem to recite.

  For our spellings we will focus on a pattern each fortnight linked to our Sounds Write phonics. The children will be asked to find it in their reading and use it in their writing.   

We ask you to hear your child read 5 times a week. I know how difficult this is – but there are often little slots of time when they can read to you – while you are cooking/ironing/ washing up or of course snuggled on the sofa or in bed.   

The children have a yellow reading record where their reading must be logged everyday. This can be logged with a comment or just a signature. Dojos will be rewarded for children who read at home on five separate occasions.   



Here at Bury we follow Sounds Write phonic programme.  We teach 30 minute phonic session daily. 

 Y1 – spelling families – first spellings /ue/, /oy/, /ar/, /o/
Y2 – spelling families – more spellings /eer/, /f/, /m/, /or/


In Maths we use Mastering Number, aimed at strengthening the understanding of number, and fluency with number facts, among children in the first three years of school and Maths No Problem. Please make sure your child plays on Numbots (all children) and TTRockstars (for Year 1 Spring term onwards) five times a week for 10 minutes – the more regularly they play, the better they will get.
