Year 1 will have 6 English lessons across the week as well as their phonic lessons. 4 of the English sessions will be centred around a text, one will be a grammar lesson and one a big write.
The big write will be on a Wednesday this year. The focus for the first half term will be capital letters, full stops, finger spaces, writing on the line, letters the right way round, using our phonics, remembering our tricky words and writing in full sentences.
In grammar children will be learning about composing a sentence orally, finger spaces, capital letters (names and beginning of a sentence), full stops, what a noun and verb is, adjectives and using 'and' and 'because' to join clauses.
The texts used in English lessons will be based around the topic. We will update this section once the topic has been revealed to the children.
