Reading, Writing and SPAG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar)


Rhyme:  The Owl and the Pussycat.

Information Text: UK Animals

Fiction: The Little Red Hen


In Reading (decoding) we will be working on:  Using our Animal Strategies to help us decode words and spotting HFW/exception words in texts and digraphs/trigraphs quickly. 

Comprehension: Predicting

In Writing we will be : Writing and composing simple sentences.  What a ? means and how they are used.                                     

In Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar we will be: Practising spelling the HFW we can read and naming the alphabet in order as well as reognising upper and lower case equivalents. Vowels and consonants.

 Along the way, the Year 1s will be practising their letter formation and handwriting.  We really want to improve our childrens’ spelling skills this year so there will  be plenty of opportunities for the Year 1s to do this.

We are aiming for ALL our children to be able to write a ‘PERFECT’ sentence before they move to Y2. The PERFECT sentence should have: a capital letter, finger spaces, full-stop, correct grammar and spelling.

READING and PHONICS: This continues to be a school  priority so please continue to  support this at home.
