Good morning Year 1 laugh


I hope you all had a fabulous day yesterday and managed to complete some super work with your grown-ups. Your Maths challenges are blowing me away, it is lovely to see how much you are pushing yourselves and challenging yourselves whilst at home! Keep up the great work! yes


Zoom meeting today 10 - 10.45am

As today is World Book Day, this will be a reading focused meeting, come along and share your reading book with me and your friends. This will be a group session where I will let you in and you can listen to eachother read and take it in turns to read to me and show me how amazing your reading is now! I can't wait to hear your fabulous reading! You could even come dressed as your favourite book character or in a costume of your choice if you wanted to. It does not have to be your school reading book you read, it could be your favourite story you have at home. I will even read to you a story (or 2) if we have time. 




As today is World book day, I thought it might be lovely to have a few activities avaliable for you to complete if you wanted to. I would hoever, really love it if as many of you as possible entered our Masked reader competition. The details of this can be found here : WEEK 1/3 | Thythorn Field Community Primary School


A few of today's activities below include : designing your own mask (which could help with the above mentioned challenge) , designing a book mark, a colouring page and a scavenger hunt. I can't wait to see the things you do today! laugh

emember to make it interesting for the reader and full of great facts. Also, remember to use:




Below is the template for a non-chronological report so you don't have to worry about drawing sections and boxes onto your page.
