Research experts

Year 1 became research experts today through researching hammerhead sharks by watching a video.

RWI
We are continuing to learn our sounds, read with expression and write sentences with capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. Keep practising reading and writing at home!! It really helps!

Topic
This week we are learning to write our very own non-fiction text, learning the features of a non-fiction page (title, heading, text, picture, label and caption). We are learning how to research a sea creature, take short notes and turn this information into sentences to write our non-fiction text. To help at home you could read non-fiction books together and look at the different features. You could also look at a non-fiction book together at http://www.iboard.co.uk/iwb/Mammals-and-Birds-Listen-and-Read-Information-Book-250

ICT
We are continuing to learn how to type using the keyboard and how to use the drawing tools in paint.
