Thurs 26/3


Good Morning Year 1 laugh  I hope you are all well and are continuing to work hard at home for your grown-ups. The updates I have received from you all so far have gone in a super picture gallery so look out for your pictures there! Your pictures make me smile as I am missing you all (a lot!) and this shows me you are happy and healthy...please continue to send them to me! I am so glad you had lovely weather again yesterday and the sun was shining so could go outside in your gardens or for walks to get some fresh air. I hear a lot of you have been out on your scooters, bikes and trampolines...keep it up!  Yesterday, I went outside in the garden again to get some fresh air and did some more gardening in the sunshine. My dog was being lazy so she sunbathed lying on the grass watching me. I will take her picture later so you can all see her as you always ask me about her.

English:  Looking at your white English packs, can you  re-read through the newspaper article about the enormous turnip and discuss it with your grown up. After the page about the key features (which you looked for yesterday) there is a page with a newspaper article writing checklist, talk about this with your grown-ups. In your yellow books, draft a few ideas from talking to your grown-ups for a newspaper article about a tiger who has escaped from the zoo and eaten all the food in Sophie's house. Below is a voice clip of Miss Martin reading the newspaper article again to you so you can follow along and a video of the Tiger who came to tea story to give you some ideas.
