Welcome to the Year 1 Class Page
In Year 1 we have been looking at our local area and the countries and capitals of The United Kingdom. We have also been enjoying our book for this half term ‘Grandad’s Island’ by Benji Davies.
This book has been used in cross-curricular activities. In art we focused on our drawing and different pencil strokes to help apply detail to the characters we drew. We have used the book to develop our inference skills, predicting what will happen next, and have incorporated the book into our phonics work, using our phonics to decode words.
For phonics we follow the read write inc scheme and work with parents to help them practice with their children at home. This half term resources were created and put into ‘parent packs’ to help their children develop their phonics and handwriting.
As we approach the second half term our topic will change to Guy Fawkes and the gunpowder plot, which will again be cross-curricular.
Any questions or concerns, please do come and see us.
Mr Calnan (Class Teacher)
