Year 1 have been enjoying our enquiry all about seaside holidays in the past. Last week they enjoyed creating their holiday homes in their DT session with Mrs Sherlock! We have been very busy in literacy planning our recount of a seaside holiday in the past which the children will write this week in their independent writing journals. They have learnt lots of facts about what a holiday in the past was like from looking at two sources, photographs and non fiction texts. The children are now becoming more confident using non fiction texts and are beginning to recognise the features and layout of these compared to a fiction book. We have been focussing on this in our guided reading sessions too! I hope you have all had an enjoyable bank holiday weekend and I look forward to reading your weekend recounts about all the exciting things you have been doing!
