Monday 18th May 2020


Good morning Year 1!

I hope you enjoyed your weekend! 

It’s a new week so let’s all start afresh by having a positive day. There are some activities this week for Mental Health Awareness Week focusing on kindness which might get you off to a good start! 😊Choose at least one activity from each of the sections on this grid to complete this week!

I’ve also uploaded a new weekly plan for you all with lots of different activities.

I know lots of you are animal lovers so this week one of your activities is to create a new animal!

You need to think about what your animal looks like, what it is called, where it lives plus lots more.

I can’t wait to see what you come up with! 🦁 

We are also going to starting to write our own diaries to record some of the things we have been doing day to day during this time. This might be something you can keep and look back on when you are older! 

and something extremly strange happened !

A stork chick has hatched in the wild in the UK for the first time in 600 years!

Diary Writing


This week we are going to start recording what we have been doing each day in the form of a diary. As part of your English work each day please complete your diary.


Each day you MUST include:

The full date including the day to practise your spelling of the days of the week - e.g Monday 18th May 2020.

At least 1 sentence to describe something you have done that day - remember your punctuation!


Each day you COULD include:

Details of different activities you have taken part in.

Descriptions of places you have been using well chosen adjectives. 

Drawings/pictures/photos to documents events in your day.

How you are feeling at different points in the day - e.g what has happened to make you laugh? smile? have you felt excited? worried? upset? 

Something someone has said to you.

Anything new you have tried or something you have learnt/practised. 


Remember when you are writing a diary you are writing about things that have already happened - so make sure you use the past tense.

Remember you are writing about things from your own point of view, using the words 'I', 'my'.

If you are writing about more than one event, try to write about the events in the order they happened during the day - use 'first', 'next', 'after that'.
