Year 1 - Theme of Superheroes.
Read the story Supertato.
DT project - design and make a Supertato. We used the TASC wheel to structure the project.
Letter from the Evil Pea - I left ‘bad messages’ from the Evil Pea around the school. Whoever read these messages turned bad. My TAs were mixing up all of the toys, and sitting on the tables. The children were in shock at first! Then, someone decided to make posters that had good messages on them to turn everyone back good. We focused on what ‘good’ and ‘bad’ meant.
I use these worksheets during my guided reading sessions with Year 1.
We make predictions about the front cover, then half way through, and then just before the end. We then reflect on what we predicted.
The skimming task is differentiated. The focus is on phase 2 and 3 tricky words. My children highlighted the words in different highlighter pen as it was clearer for them to count the words at the end.

My Reception class enjoyed the story 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt'. We came up with our own story, and changed the words to 'We're Going on a Bug Hunt'. For our class assembly, we learnt Pie Corbett actions to retell the story. We also sang the Ugly Bug Ball song. It took us about 20-25 minutes. The parents and children loved it!
