PSHCE:

Today we are going to think about our friends.

Why is it important to have friends?

What makes you a good friend?

What makes your friend a good friend?

 Talk about this together at home.  

You can write and draw about this in your book if you would like to, but this is optional:

*What makes you a good friend to your friend?

Here is a video of a story about friendship that you might like to watch at home:

9:30 - Literacy Zoom

Today we will be thinking about fairy tales and what type of characters are in different fairy tales.

We will talk about this in our Zoom lesson.

In readiness for this you might like to start thinking about different fairy tales that you know and the characters in them.

After the Zoom, you will be asked to sort some familiar characters into ‘Good’ and ‘Bad’ groups and explain what we think makes them ‘good or bad’.

 Here are some pictures to talk about at home and sort into groups.  You can glue them into your book under the heading of 'good or bad' or you can draw your own if you prefer.

After sorting the characters. Select your favourite good and bad fairy tale character and write a sentence explaining what makes them good or bad. 

For example, Little Red Riding Hood is the ‘good’ character because she is kind by taking cakes to Grandma.

The wolf is ‘bad’ because he is mean to Grandma and tries to eat Red Riding Hood.

* Try to remember capital letters for the start of the sentence and for names.

Below are some key words that might help you when thinking about the characters and how to describe them.

 Your task today is to draw and label four pictures of a tree – one in each season.

Here are some examples:

Can you write which season you have drawn for each tree?

As an extension- you could also label what is on the tree in each season, for example, blossom in the spring.

Here is a template of four bare trees for you to add to and colour appropriately. You do not have to use it. You can draw your own trees or, if you would prefer to make this as a collage or paint your own trees, you are welcome to make this a creative task!

Thank you once again for all your support at home with all of the learning today.

Well done Year One for working so hard!
