New Carpet Song

New Carpet Song

Hello Year 1,

I am very sad because our come to the carpet song has broken and so we need a new song. Unfortunately, I just can’t choose a song that I think you would like.

Your task this week is to suggest the name of a song you would like to have play for come to the carpet time but you must say why!

Here’s What I’m Looking For WILF:

* Can you tell me the name of the song you would like?
* Can you tell me why using the connective ‘because‘?

ALL writing MUST have…

* Can you use a capital letter at the start of your sentence?
* Can you use finger spaces between words?
* Can you use a full stop at the end of your sentence?

I can’t wait to read your ideas.

Y1 Homework – your first task – describe a setting

Y1 Homework – your first task – describe a setting

Hello everybody!

This year, we will be setting homework every Wednesday and will expect it to be handed in by the following Monday.

For each completed homework, you will earn a token to put in your special box. If you get 4 tokens per half term, you can earn a treat! WOW!

As this is the first homework, we thought we would give you a little bit more time to do it so here it is:

This week, we will be creating a ‘Dream Map’, where we create our own settings! Remember that a setting is a place where an event can happen and where the characters in your story might live.

For homework, you will need to post a comment on the blog or draw and write about your own setting.

You must say why you have chosen the setting and why.

Choose one of these settings or create your own. Remember to ask your grown ups to help you if you need it.

This work is due by Monday 23rd September.

We wonder which setting you might choose…
