In Literacy this week we will be reflecting on the exciting experiences we have had in Year One, and we will write letters to our friends in Reception to help them prepare for their exciting year coming up. We will recap on what we know about how to structure a letter, and how to use adjectives to make our writing interesting and informative.
This week in Themed Learning, the children will learn how to create different textures using paint. We will use ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ as a stimulus and look very carefully at the techniques Eric Carle uses. The children will also develop their photography skills and use the iPads to add affects and edit their photographs.
