At the start of the term, we will spend time assessing the children in reading, phonics and Read Write Inc (RWI) so we know exactly where the children are upto and what groups they need to be in. We will then start the year with a focus on the book ‘Lost and Found’. Our key objectives that we will cover are: combine words to make sentences, leave spaces between words, begin to use capitals letters and full stops, use capital letters for the names of people and the personal pronoun ‘I’. By the end of the topic, we would hope that the children can write their own adventure story based on the structure of Lost and Found. Alongside of this we will continue to focus on spelling the days of the week and the Y1 Common Exception Words as well as naming the letters of the alphabet.
