A huge WELL DONE to all of you Year 1!! You have been working so hard this half term and have shown real resilience in adapting to the changes so quickly. We are so proud of you all!
Next week is half term, so we will be signing off for now. We will start back again on 1st June.
Ismail - you have made an excellent fact file about Eid and Ramadan, well done!
Amelie - Fantastic work! What a great description of what happens during Ramadan and Eid!
An Qian - It was great to hear from you and to see you have been working hard at home.
We would not say 'I find a yummy snack'.... 'I found a yummy snack' makes more sense.
Reminder... Book Swap will take place today from 1-3pm. Please come along and swap your books. We can't wait to see you all! :-)
As you know Year 1 this week has been MENTAL HEALTH WEEK and our main focus as been kindness.
Have a look at the picture below and see if out of the 50 acts of kindness you could do at least 10 with your family.

Reminder.. It is halfterm next week so we will be signing off for the week. Here's a short story from me to YOU!
Have a lovely halfterm year 1 :-)
Siyana - Well done for all your hard work. You have written a very clear list of what was on the Monkey Menu. You have also written great instructions of how to make a mask, using time adverbials. Your animal mask is fantastic!
Maryam - your instructions are very clear and you have used bossy verbs like 'draw' 'put' and 'cut'. Try and use numbers to make them even clearer.
Your handwriting is becoming more consistent, well done!
Danyal - I can see you have been doing lots of maths problem solving. You are correct the blue strip is 3cm longer and the elephant is 5cm shorter.
Look at the car and the plane again, what did Whitney use to measure them with? What do you notice?
Your instructions are very clear, fantastic work!
Zaid - excellent comprehension work, you have shown a really good understanding of the text!
Reminder... Book Swap will take place again this Friday from 1-3pm. Please come along and swap your books, it would be lovely to see you!
Watch the video below of Buddy Oliver showing us how to make pancakes.
Make your own video showing us 'How to'. This could be 'How to make a mask' or 'How to make a smoothie' or any other 'How to' of your choice, be creative!
Send your videos to me at firstname.lastname@example.org, I can't wait to see them!
Amelie - Your instructions are super clear and I can see you have used time adverbials effectively. Well done for tackling the maths challenges also!
Are you sure that the car and the plane were both measured with cubes?
Marwah - I can see you have been practising your handwriting and solving lots of problems involving length. Well done!
Ismail - I can see
Dear Virginia pupils,
We need your help!! In conjunction with Liveable Streets Bethnal Green, we would like you to make a short video to say what you are looking forward to when changes are made in the area.
This could be centred around one of the following themes:
**Your videos will be uploaded to the Liveable Streets website**
Your videos must be no longer than 30 seconds. Please send all videos to email@example.com by Wednesday 27th May.
I want you to think back to when you made your animal masks, today we are going to write instructions on how to make them. Work your way through the slides below.
Ecrin - well done for your excellent writing! I can see you have formed your letters correctly.
Maryam - well done for all of your hard work! I am really impressed! You have shown a good understanding of the text about tigers and I really like all the good deeds you have thought of.
Danyal - I can see you have been hard at work with your maths tasks and challenges today! How do you know that the car is longer than the aeroplane?
Your instructions were very clear and very detailed, well done!
Yousef - Well done for writing your instructions, I can see that you have used time adverbials and bossy verbs like 'chop' 'scoop' and 'give'. I especially liked your last instruction 'bon appetit' - very original! I like your picture of the monkeys eating all of the fruit too.
I hope you are all well. Something kind I have experienced really...my mum sent me my favourite biscuits in the post, they were yummy! How can you be kind today?
Learning for today...
Today we are going to focus on the ie and i-e sounds. Please complete these activities on Espresso.
Watch 'Writing a Menu for Monkeys' again.
Today I would like you to write instructions for how to prepare the fruit.
- number your instructions
- each new instruction should be written on a new line
- try and use 'bossy' verbs, like 'put' 'cut' 'wash'

Amelie - I am so impressed with your retelling of The Leopard's Drum! Your punctuation is accurate, you have used conjunctions and interesting vocabulary and you have a clear author's voice. What an amazing piece! 👏🏻
I really like the good deeds you have thought about as well.
You have made a good start to your instructions work.
When writing a list, remember to put each new item on a new line.
Siyana - well done for identifying animals in our local area and for your maths and phonics work also. Keep up the good work!
Danyal - WOW!! You have been doing such great learning at home, I am so impressed! I really like your idea of a 'friendship happy face' to help children who are looking for someone to play with - what a lovely idea.
