Year 1 English

Welcome to the Year 1 English Page. Throughout the year we will be developing our Reading and Writing skills through various different methods. We will be focusing on Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar in order to develop our skills. Alongside this we will use Power of Reading books as a focus for our lessons. 

World Book Day 2017


Today we came dressed in our favourite Traditional Tale costume to celebrate World Book Day. We had lots of fun listening to different Traditional Tales and creating our very own puppet shows. We also had a chance to share our favourite stories with our friends creating book recommendations. We had a lovely day filled with lots of activities and chances for us to read with our friends. We have all decided that we LOVE books!!



(Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar)

Grammar is an important aspect of our curriculum as it enables the children to develop the knowledge and skills needed to improve their writing. Within Year 1 we cover various different objectives that will all enable the children to become confident, independant writers. We make the lessons as fun and engaging as possible in order to get the best from the children. 


We have recently been focusing on building simple sentences and enuring that the words are in the correct order so that our sentences make sense. 


Every person, place or thing needs a name and so we sing 

Names means Nouns.

We are becoming very good at idntifiying lots of different nouns. I'm sure if you asked us we could think of plenty! 


We have been learning all about action words and how these are known as Verbs. We have had great fun playing Verb charades, guessing each others actions.
