This term we will be reading a number of books all based around our topic of ‘Where We Live’. We will be starting off with the gorgeous story ‘Home’ by Carson Ellis. This beautifully illustrated book will introduce us to the many types of homes around the world. Some other stories we will be exploring this term include; Home Sweet Home, That Pesky Rat, Fleabag and A House That Once Was.
Throughout our English lessons we will build up to our final pieces of writing. These writing outcomes will include, descriptive writing, letter writing, information texts, wanted posters and poetry.
In Year One we will be working extremely hard at the beginning on writing sentences with capital letters, finger spaces and full stops.
