Welcome to Year 1!

What are we learning?

In English…

This half term, we will be reading, ‘Lost and Found’ by Oliver Jeffers. We will be using this exciting text to practise writing complete sentences using a capital letter, full stops and finger spaces. We will also explore how the characters are feeling in the book. This will help us with our outcome of writing our own narrative of the story. Throughout the half term we will be practicing our letter formation.
