Year 1 Bulletin

For week commencing Sunday, 13th May


This week in Literacy, we will adapt the story, ‘The Papaya that Spoke’, by adding alternative language to the story.

By the end of the week, children will be able to:

  • Create different sentence starters to make the story more interesting.
  • Add alternative adjectives to the story to help describe characters in more detail.
  • Use alternative verbs to improve the story.
  • Write and edit their improved version of the story in a book format.
  • Design and illustrate a book cover.


This week we will re-visit place value. We will extend to numbers up to 100 and use a variety of interactive methods to help consolidate our learning.

This video is help re-visit last weeks’ learning,


This week we will be extending on our learning about the Houses of Parliament in England by exploring the story of Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder Plot. We will get a chance to interview Guy Fawkes himself, to discover more about the events, and will then be sequencing what happened in chronological order. Finally, we will get a chance to recreate the Gunpowder Plot ourselves through drama and role play!
