Year 1- Mrs Mosses/ Mrs Folley

Our topic this term is Dinosaurs. Click here to see our topic web.

We have been making Clay Dinosaurs with Mrs Folley. In our Literacy we wrote some instructions we then followed the instructions to help us make the models!

Our topic last term was Medieval Madness!  Click here to see our topic web.


During out topic work we were able to go and visit Caldicot Castle. We had a super time exploring a real castle and learning what it was like to live there. We had a dress up day at school as well.


In our Literacy we have been learning how to write instructions. We have to remember to put them in the correct order, use time connectives, capital letters, full stops and finger spaces.

We have also been learning how to write recounts. This means telling about something that has already happened. We have to remember to use the past tense. I am particularly pleased that Rhys is beginning to use finger spaces and is beginning to read his own words.

Finally we have been learning how to write traditional stories. The children can explain personification and point it out all the time. We have been learning about characters, settings, putting the story in the correct order with time connectives and the correct punctuation.
