Hi Year 1!
Hope you are all okay. It has been lovely seeing some of you in school again this week and also seeing the children who are working from home on our zoom chat.
Welcome to Week 13 of Home/School Learning!
There are lots of new activities below to keep us all busy this coming week. If you are going to be in school, I will be able to see your wonderful work there, but if you are working from home, please don't forget to send me some photographs so I can see what you have been doing. Our new stars of the week are listen down below, but there are still 2 weeks of school left so I have time to choose lots more stars!
Take care and keep trying your best in everything you do,
love from Miss Johnson.

Below are the Geography tasks I would like you to have a go at this week. We are continuing to think about our mapping skills and map symbols. There is an activity for you to do where you can practise drawing some map symbols. Then, I would like you to have a look at the different maps from the places in the stories and see if you can create your own map from a place in a story. You can use the template provided for your map or just do it on plain paper.
Here is a list of some story places that you might like to use or, you can think of your own idea too!
- A map of Gruffalo woods.
-A map of Stick Man's world.
-A map of Little Red Riding Hood woods.
-A map of the Three Little Pigs world.
-A map of the Faraway Tree woods.
-A map of the Three Bears woods.
-A map of the 100 Acre Wood.
