This half term, Year 1 are studying stories with familiar settings. we are basing our texts on books about bears. We have enjoyed reading We’re Going on a Bear Hunt and have recreated our own versions in class. The children have enjoyed using role play and hot seating to retell the stories.

Learning to sequence events and add a description to characters and setting has been and will continue to be a focus for us throughout this unit.

We are looking forward to meeting as many of you as possible at our Meet the Teacher meeting on October 7th.
