Hi Year 1!

The home learning is based on the teaching and learning that the children would be receiving in class with many of the activities being the same wherever possible. Over the course of the week, we ask that the children complete as many of the home learning tasks as possible. Home learning will be placed on the school website weekly and is for those children who are having to self-isolate at home. (There will also be homework set, this can be found by clicking on the Homework tab).

 

Please don't forget to share photos, comments and queries via our email. If you have any questions please contact us at year1@grafton.bardaglea.org.uk

 Please email in completed home learning to the email address above with your child's name and class for your child's class teacher to review. Thank you

We have some new learning and fun activities for you to do at home this week.

Literacy lesson 1

This week we are continuing our work on ‘Burger Boy’ by Alan Durant. You  can listen to the story here;

 

 

 

 

We have written a simplified version of the story. 

Benny loved eating burgers.

“You’ll turn in to a burger one day,” said his mum.

And one day he did.

First, the dogs wanted to eat Benny so they chased him.

“I’m not a burger, I’m a boy!” Shouted Benny.

Then the cows were cross with Benny so they chased him.

“I’m not a burger, I’m a boy!” Shouted Benny.

Next, the children wanted to eat Benny so they chased him.

“I’m not a burger, I’m a boy!” Shouted Benny.

“Get in!” said the man in the van.

The man wanted to sell Benny for £1 a slice.

“That’s not a burger, that’s my son” shouted Benny’s mum.

Benny’s mum fed him healthy food and he turned back into a boy.

Benny loved carrots now.

“You’ll turn in to a carrot one day,” said his mum.

 

Can you make a change to the 'Burger Boy' story? Change Burger Boy into a different character e.g. ‘Banana Boy’ or ‘Sausage Girl’. If you choose Sausage Girl a pig could chase after her and instead of saying the cow in a field you could use pig in a farm/sty, etc.  Orally retell or perform your new story to someone else.
