Hello Year 1. We hope that you are staying safe in the bad weather. Please find some activities to do throughout the day. First, dress up as your fairy tale character. We would love to see lots of photos of your amazing costume. Then please complete the phonics videos. Look for the coloured group for your child (it will be the same colour as your reading book).
After this we were then going to start our fairy tale day in school. Firstly we were going to watch Peter Pan. Please select a fairy tale of your choice for your children to watch. After the film, please ask your child to draw a picture of their favourite character and then write a sentence about why they liked it.
My favourite character is.......... because....... (remember to use your capital letters, full stops and finger spaces when you are writing).
We were also going to make a potato fairy tale character and stick puppets so that we could retell some of our favourite stories. (see tapestry post for images).
For the afternoon we were going to have a banquet (a posh lunch) and a dance - just like the ball in Cinderella. Have some lunch and then put some music on for your child to dance to - they can dance with you or even a toy they have at home.
Finally to end the day we are going to create front covers for a fairy tale story or if your child would like to they can create a front cover for the fairy tale stories that they have written in class. If your child can remember the main character of their story - fantastic - if not then they can just use their name. Below is a picture of what we were going to recreate. Please use anything you have around your home to create these.
Remember please send us photos to Tapestry - we would love to see what you have got up to!
From everyone at Year 1 we hope you have a lovely half term - take care stay safe and we will see you soon.
