SPAG
(Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation)

Grammar is an important aspect of our curriculum as it enables the children to develop the knowledge and skills needed to improve their writing. Within Year 1 we cover various different objectives that will all enable the children to become confident, independant writers. We make the lessons as fun and engaging as possible in order to get the best from the children. 

Our Space Topic

During our space topic Year 1 have been doing work in class is based around the story 'Beegu'.

During this topic there has been a UFO crash at school, the children looked for clues and discovered who made the mess in our playground. 

A spaceman also came to visit Year 1 and Year 2. He taught us all about what it is like to be an astronaut. We also made space rockets and had lots of fun firing them at his target.
