Literacy/Whole School Project: Keyingham Village Journal

Hi Year 1s, 


Wow, what a long time it’s been since we last saw you and what a strange 10 weeks it has been! We're sure you’ve all been very busy doing lots of different things and, maybe, learning new skills. We miss you all very much and so would really like to hear (and see) what you’ve all been up to. We would really like it if you could make a journal of your time at home so far to tell us about the best bits you have done with photos or drawings and some sentences to explain what you have enjoyed the most.


Maybe, like us, you’ve had lots of nature walks or bike rides or, like Mrs Lawson, you have really enjoyed keeping fit with Joe Wicks? You might have learned a new skill like hula-hooping or baking cakes or simply enjoyed reading in the sunshine. Whatever you have done, we would love to know. 


As a Year 1 writer, we would like to see if you can write sentences with all the correct punctuation. In your sentences, we would like you to try and include the following Year 1 writing features:  

Capital letters and full stops: I really enjoyed going on a bike ride and hearing all the beautiful birds singing in the bushy, green trees. 

Adjectives: (tasty, happy, yellow, rough, fresh) My cakes were delicious and they tasted sweet. 

Time conjunctions: (yesterday, first, next, after that, finally) Last week I went for a really long walk and discovered a calm, cool lake with ducks swimming on it. 


We hope you have fun making this and we really look forward to seeing all that you have been up to. 


Mrs Doves and Mrs Lawson
