You can extend this lesson by thinking of an action step for each part of the story, focusing on using facial expressions


Year 1: Today’s lesson is all about plural nouns. You will be learning about adding the suffix -s to a noun to make it plural.



Wildlife Wednesday: Get yourself a piece of paper and a pencil. Find a place to sit in the garden (or sit by an open window). If you’re outside pop a mark in the middle of the paper, if you’re by a window pop a mark at the edge of the paper. This mark represents where you’re sat. Close your eyes, be quiet and listen to the naturals sounds around you. Open your eyes and mark it on the paper with something that represents the sound and where it is in relation to you i.e. a bird at the top of their paper to represent a bird in the distance in front of them singing.

I wonder what kinds of noises you’ll hear in your garden…

If you have any problems or any work you’d like to send us to see please contact Nikki in the office and she will forward it onto us. We love seeing what you get up to!

Have a great day!

Miss Horton 🙂
