Welcome back Year 1!
I hope you are all well, and are enjoying the work at home.
This week your work may look slightly different as some of you will be in the classroom with me, and some of you are still at home. I wanted to make sure we were all still doing the same work, so we still all feel like we are learning together!
Let's start this week with a different game.
This one is called:
If I ruled the world...
The aim of the game is to argue against the person ruling the world.
In response to this, your sentence will start with:
I disagree with you Miss Kennedy because...
Have a go and then play with the people in your home. Remember, Oracy games are all about what you say and how you say it, so think carefully about what words you choose to use.

You should all now have your MyON logins. This is our new online library, it is packed full of wonderful books to get your nose into.
Even those coming into school wont be able to take a book home right now so, this is our way of being able to see what you are reading, how long each book takes you and how much you are reading.
Last week I could see that lots of you have already accessed the website and have read lots and lots! So well done! Next week I will give those who are reading every day a shoutout! Will that be you? Check out Mr Crow's marvellous myOn reading here. He might even be able to help you out if you are struggling!
Try picking books from the recommended section first, but once you are more confident with the website and want to read a wider variety of books, feel free to explore and find more books that take your fancy! Try and read a variety of fiction (made up) and non-fiction (factual) books.
