 In Year 1 we are always busy learning different spellings.

Spelling homework is sent out every Friday and tested the following Friday. 



We are looking at the text, 'The Boy Who Loved Maps' this half term. We will be working on describing settings using adjectives. The children will use their fantastic phonic knowledge to write super sentences including, capital letters, full stops and finger spaces.
