In Year 1, each week children learn about a book based around our topic. The children have many opportunities to write for different purposes such as a letter, an advert, a set of instructions and stories. Children are expected to use a neat and legible handwriting style and ensure that they use their phonic knowledge for spelling. They focus on vocabulary, connectives, openers and punctuation in all our pieces of writing.
They take part in guided reading each week, focusing on segmenting and blending and understanding of the story.
