Welcome to Summer Term in KS1

Hope you have had a lovely Easter break and are ready for the summer term.


The topic in both Year 1 and Year 2 is " Who's the King of the Castle"


We will be looking at lots of different stories based around castles and non fiction books explaining all the different parts of a castle.

We will be looking at castles in our locality and even visit Stafford Castle for a fun day seeing first hand what life was like in a castle. Please take a look at the topic  webs and knowledge organisers below to find out more details of our exciting topic.

We are also looking forward to celebrating the Queen's Jubilee with a variety of activities. More details to follow.



Homework will be set weekly. It will be set on a Monday to be completed by the following Monday.  This homework can be found by logging onto Spelling Shed and My Maths. Please let your class teacher know if you are having problems accessing either site.


 Please read with your child at home on a daily basis.  For us to know this is happening we ask you to sign your child’s reading record with a comment on how much they read, if they did well or any difficulties that they had. Children will read daily in school as part of a small group and their book will be changed once they have read it in school 3 times, as per the Read Write Inc programme that we follow.



We will continue to have one P.E session a week on a Tuesday afternoon. This PE lesson will be taken by Mrs Wilson and Mr Reed

Children are required to come to school wearing their full PE Kit. With the guidance in place advising against changing clothes in school, children will be required to come to school wearing their full PE Kit on their allocated day (and also on Fitness Friday).

We are suggesting that the Elworth PE t -shirt and shorts/skort be worn underneath the Elworth jogging bottoms and zip up top on colder days.  A waterproof jacket is a necessity, in case of poor weather. Children will also need to come in wearing a sensible pair of sports trainers.



Children will be able to order snacks on a daily basis. If your child is having a snack from home, please can you ensure it’s a healthy snack and avoid sending in chocolate or sweets.

Please ensure your child has a water bottle every day. In the current climate we are unable to provide cups for children who have forgotten their bottle.



As per the last two terms, all children must continue to learn their half termly spelling lists – Summer 1 – for a test at the end of this half term.  Ideally this should happen weekly – little and often – to enable the children to master the spelling of all of the words.
