Talk for writing in Year 1


In Year 1 we have been using the story ‘Dogger’ by Shirley Hughes as our Talk for Writing focus.  These are some of the sentence signposts we have used so far.

We love to read!


Rida the bear has spent the last two weeks in Year 1 because we have been doing so much reading at home! He has enjoyed our book corner and we have enjoyed reading him stories.  Some members of Year 1 have enjoyed writing stories and making books for him to read!

We love Science!

We carried out a water proofing experiment.  Micky Mouse needed our help.  His umbrella had a hole in it and he didn’t know which material would be the best one to fix it with.  We made predictions before we started with our friends over which one we though would be the best one for him to use.  We enjoyed finding out in our groups which materials would be waterproof and them deciding which one would be best for him to use.

Maths is all around us!


Over half term we were set the challenge to see where in the world we could see Maths.  Year 1 made a fantastic effort with their homework and they thoroughly enjoyed sharing it with the rest of the children in their class! 

We enjoyed sharing our chosen word for World Book Day with the rest of the children in our class we have learnt lots of new words from discussing each other’s costumes we have had a great day!
