“One key topic that is always covered in year 1 are the seasons, always beginning with summer through to spring. Seasons are an excellent topic to introduce verbs and adjectives as I encourage students to think of seasonal activities and the characteristics of each season. For each season we have decided to make a poster listing various activities associated with it. In the middle of the poster there is always a sentence starter which students can then write an ending to and draw a picture to accompany it. Hence learning basic sentence structure and acquiring new vocabulary”.
