Good morning Year 1,

You have made it!  Today is our last day of home learning as we will all be back in school on Monday. It is our final day of world book week and here is our last clue.

 

 

What is on the door?  What story are we learning about today?  Can you guess?

 

We hope you all have a great day today and we will see you all on Monday!

Miss Young, Mrs Robinson and Miss Briggs

 

English

 

Did you guess the story from the clue? Today’s story is Jack and the Beanstalk.  Start by watching the story using the link below.  What a terrible giant!  Today we will help Jack find the giant by working on a wanted poster. Think back to the beginning of the week where we learnt about adjectives.  What adjectives can you think of to describe the giant?

Example, tall, big, huge, mean, nasty.

Use the writing frame below to make a wanted poster to find the giant.  Start by drawing the giant, then use the adjectives you thought of to describe the giant.  There is a picture below with ideas.
