Year 1 absolutely love to read!
They are thoroughly enjoying choosing stories and information books from our class library whenever they can.
We are enjoying reading books by many different authors. To show our favourite authors to visitors in school we decided to begin an author tree which is displayed in the reading corner. It is work in progress at the moment but you can already see that we know and enjoy stories by Jill Murphy, Julia Donaldson and Jez Alborough. We will be adding to our author tree throughout the year and we are really looking forward to finding out about new authors and their books.
Year 1 also like to read with their reading buddy. They listen to each other and help the other person to decode unknown words, understand events or support them to read aloud with expression.
