Year 1

Transport Walk

Hello Year 1



We are learning about different animals - what they need to live, different diets and their similarities and differences in structure.

We will be talking about our pets. Please send photos of your children's pets to share. These can be sent to our class e-mails and we can print for you.



We are reading Owl Babies. We are describing the story setting and character, so we can write a story opening of our own.


Keep practising our Year 1 graphme - phoneme corespondance (the letter pattern that makes the single sound):


ay, ea, ie, ew, oy, au, ir, ph, wh, oe, ue, and the split digraphs a-e, e-e, i-e, o-e, u-e.


Practise reading and writing words:

spout, Paul, boil, brawl, treat, speak, trawler, ploy, play, fray, toe, true, flew, 


Tricky words

Practise writing:

some, come, there, were, where, said, so, like, have, little, one, do, when, what, out


Practise reading:

oh, their, people, looked, called, asked, Mr, Mrs, could, what

Comic Relief - sharing jokes!

Our Personal, Social, Health and Economic development remains a key part of our everyday learning as well as specific learning.

We are exploring and naming emotions and thinking about relationships. We have also been practising mindfulness in assemblies.


At Puss Bank, we believe learning to read is the gateway to all learning. 

All children will get new books this week, please read with your child at least 3 times a week and record this in their organiser.


Play-based Learning

We will continue to practise our learning through carefully planned play based continuous provision.
