Year 1 have been using some reference books to help with their vocabulary work during recent literacy lessons. The children have worked in small groups reading From the Forest, a reference book that tells us all about what we can expect to find in this type of setting.
We have asked the children what can they expect to find in the forest? Answers included apples, blackberries, nuts and logs. A large part of this work is to help the children explore a new vocabulary through working with reference books. We then spent some time putting these into a sentence to help explain some of the facts contained in the book.
