Welcome to this week's Year One blog.

Next week in literacy we will be introducing 'Catch a Star'. We are looking at nouns, capital letters, full stops and how to sequence a story.


In maths, we will continue to add numbers with 20. We will do this by adding by making 10 and using number bonds to 20. Please see more information by looking at our knowledge and skills organiser.
