Good morning Year One!
We hope you had a good day learning at home yesterday. We are looking forward to seeing some of your trees at the start of our Zoom this morning!
This morning we are going to wake ourselves up with a few dances to get you ready for learning:
9:30 - Literacy Zoom
In Literacy today, we will be looking at the character of Little Red Riding Hood and exploring what type of character she is.
Is she really a ‘good’ character?
We will be thinking about her appearance and personality and describing these.
After our input on Red Riding Hood the children will be asked to describe the appearance and personality of the ‘big bad wolf.’
There is a choice of activity today:
1. Draw and label the wolf using descriptive vocabulary. Then write a sentence about the character of the wolf. For example, the wolf has evil, yellow eyes. He is cunning and as naughty as…
2. Create a wanted poster for the ‘big, bad wolf’. In your picture, include descriptive labels and then write descriptive vocabulary describing why he is ‘wanted’ and use your knowledge of the story to write about his crimes. Can you think of a suitable reward for finding him?
If you complete option 1- this can be written straight into your book.
Here are some possible templates for option 2- or come up with your own layout if you prefer.
As an extra task, you might like to have a go at sorting the describing words to match the characters in the story of Little Red Riding Hood. This might be a nice task to complete on Wednesday, if you don't get to do it today. It is an optional task:
