Please link on the following link if you feel your child would benefit from reading longer words.


Throughout this week the children will be reading the yellow book Lost’ and completing some tasks like we do in school. These will be spread out and we will revisit different parts of the book on different days. Follow this link to find the PDF of the book ‘Lost’:

Today’s tasks with the book are:

  • Child to read the book for one last time (pages 9-15). They should be able to read the books fluently with expression today.



Watch the video with the Year 1 teachers who will introduce a writing task linked to the story. Your child will need paper and a pencil. Ideally this would be lined paper/exercise books, or paper that you have drawn some lines on so that children can practise their handwriting and where letters sit on the line.

It would be great if you could take a picture of your writing and add it to the class blogs for the teacher’s to see!
