Cove Infant School

Year 1

Summer Reading Challenge! 


This year, we have 2 summer reading challenges that we are promoting. 


1) Wild World Heroes -  This is the Public Library reading challenge and more information can be found on the link below. 


Wild World Heroes


Children have to register and then read 6 books. They can then earn stickers, a certificate and a medal! 


2) Cove Infant School's Summer Reading Bingo Challenge

Choose one of our bingo boards to try and complete. There are a range of fun reading activities to conduct, such as, reading under the stars or reading a book that makes you laugh! Once you have completed the reading task, colour in the box. If you complete all the boxes, bring your bingo board back to school in September and you will earn a certificate! 

The bingo boards are below. 

Welcome to Year 1! 


Our start time for Year 1 is 9:00am and we finish at 3:15pm. 


Please come to school in your PE kit on Mondays and Fridays as these are the days when we will have PE! 


Reading books will be sent home on a Monday and collected in on a Friday. Please listen to your child read their books throughout the week to help them become more confident with their reading. This will also help your child to develop their fluency and use of expression. Please can you write in your child's green reading record book to let us know how well they read. 


We are still missing lots of our guided reading books so please could you take a look at home to see if you have any of our books hidden away. We would be very grateful to have them returned! Thank you! 





Tree-mendous Trees and Fantastic Flowers


The children received a video call from Professor Poppy. She explained that she needs the children to become 'plant experts' to help her with her study of what plants grow within Cove Infant School's grounds. 



During this project, the children will learn to become scientists. The will conduct experiments to find out answers to their questions about plants. The children will create a fact sheet about plants in our school and display them by the plants. Then the children will create a plant trail around the school to help visitors to the school identify and understand the different plants we have in our location. All the plant information will be collected and sent to Professor Poppy to help her with her plant study.



For this project, we will be creating a virtual plant trail, which will be shared with parents on see-saw!






Project Vocabulary 


During our project, we are looking to develop the children's understanding and use of a range of vocabulary that is crucial to our learning. Our aim is to teach the children this vocabulary so that they can explain what it means. They should also be able to use it in a range of contexts both at school and at home. The children should be able to use it verbally when they talk and also in their written work. 


Please work with your child to develop their understanding of the definition of the word and to use this vocabulary with you at home.  


Key Project Vocabulary:  

 plant                 habitat

bulb                 micro-habitat

seed                  classify

growth             deciduous

trunk                evergreen

twig                  investigate

branch              observe
