On Monday in school we start the week with our Music lessons. Miss Nolan misses you all and prepared a Music Lesson for today's lesson. Access it via the link below. We hope you enjoy!



Today we are going to be using similes to write about The Bog Baby.

If you like you can remind yourself of the story by watching my story video or looking at the Bog Baby picture book that I have reposted. 

A simile compares 2 things using the word 'as.' For example. The sun is as shiny as a diamond or the moon is as round as a button. 

Watch Miss Romagnoli's teaching video for some more ideas. 

Well done, Year 1. yes

Hello Year 1! This week we are concentrating on the 'ue' sound. It can be quite tricky because sometimes the sound sounds like /oo/ and sometimes /yoo/ 

Watch Miss James' and Mr Thorne's video and have a go at adding sound buttons to the words!
