BISB Year 1

Morning routine in Year 1

Each morning in Year 1 we settle into the day with activities designed to promote fine motor skills so there is a lot of physical manipulation activities involving the hands and fingers.

This time is also a warm up for our next lesson, which is handwriting. During the year we learn first the basic letter shapes before moving onto a pre-cursive style; this is an important step towards joined cursive handwriting , which children learn in Year 2. Our next morning lesson is phonics where we are learning the letter sounds starting with single letter sounds before moving onto blended sounds. All of these activities promote early writing and spelling skills also and during the year we always see real progress as the children's reading, writing, spelling and handwriting skills combine and improve.
