In year 1 we have been looking at the story 'The Rainbow Bear by Michael Morpurgo'. We have read this book to help us understand descriptive language. We will be writing descriptions of the setting in the story focusing on the following skills.

To form their letters on the line and the right way round.

To use capital letters, finger spaces and full stops.

To use the conjunction 'and'.



The children will be learning their phonics each morning in their phase groups. We will be encouraging them to use these skills to help them read and write in other lessons. 


Guided Reading

We will be exploring different texts in our Guided Reading sessions each day. We encourage you to read daily with your child to promote a love of reading. We will be checking reading records each week to make sure our children are reading at home as well as at school.
