Monday 1st March


We are thinking about 2 words form Mrs Wordsmith. Gargantuan, and bumbling. 

I wonder how you could use each of these words to describe someone from the story The Kiss that Missed?

Draw a picture and label with your word choice to show what it means. 


We are beginning a new unit looking at measuring. Today we are talking about comparing lengths. 


This weeks sound family is 'ee'. Watch the clip then complete the phoneme spotter on phonics play 'investigating ee' in phase 5c or print out the copy below. 


We are continuing to think about where we live. This week we are looking at the UK.  We are going to be naming the countries of the UK and looking at their flags. We will think about the capital cities of each country.

look at the best bet poster  and discuss which spelling is most common. Phonics play investigating alternative spellings ee


We are continuing to think about materials. We are going to name objects and think about which material has been chosen to make that object. 

Wednesday 3rd March


We are thinking about where the story The kiss that missed is set. There is the castle where the young prince lives, and the wild woods where the knight meets the wild animals and dragon.

Draw a picture of one of the settings. Use adjectives from earlier in the week, or think of some more, to describe your setting.

Pracise spelling and reading tricky words said so have like. 

Write the words rich, much, future, adventure, catch, stitch. Which phoneme do they all contain? Alternative spelling of ch, ture, tch.

Complete the phoneme grid.

RE - Lent challenge - We are continuing to think about Hope.  Watch the powerpoint. It may be a little hard for Year 1 to understand it all , but it is a good starting point for discussion. 

Create a word pattern using words linked to the word hope. Words that mean hope to you. There is also a mindful colouring sheet for the word hope.



Friday 5th March


Today we are going to make a little book to tell the story of The kiss that missed.  Use all the words that you have thought of over the week to add description to your story. Use your story ma from last week to help keep your story in order. Don't forget to add wonderful illustrations. There is a small book template, it is small!!  Paper folded to make a book, using pages together or using a note book are all great ways to show your story.
