Sentence Writing Criteria

In Year 1 we teach the children how to use capital letters and full stops. They learn how to separate each word with a finger space so it is easy to read back their own work. We have been learning how to make writing more interesting by using adjectives and conjunctions. 

We have introduced a new handwriting scheme and the children have been learning how to write in cursive handwriting.

Working together to keep us safe

 The Bedford Midland Railway Station Manager is looking to decorate Bedford Train Station with pictures from children in the community to show support for key workers and to show how the local community is pulling together to support them.

Children can draw a picture of the key worker that they would like to do your poster for and write a simple thank you message. Here are some examples of key workers and messages:



  • Shop workers. Thank you to our wonderful shop workers. You are keeping the nation fed. 
  • Railway station workers or bus drivers. Thank you to the railway stations and  staff. You are transporting key workers and supplies..
  • Nurses/ doctors/ hospital staff/ pharmacy staff. Thank you NHS, you are saving lives.
  • Teachers/ school staff. Thank you to our schools who are open to allow our key workers to be able to go to work
  • Council workers. Thank you for keeping our streets clean and our bins empty. 
  • Parents/ carers. Thank you for being my parent and my teacher and caring for me. 

If parents took a photo of the work they could be emailed to the school or emailed to directly to me through the year 1 email address.

Downloadable Plan

Science (18-5-20)

Day 1

On your daily exercise, go on a plant hunt! You can use the tick sheet below as a guide but you don’t need to print it if you are unable to. If you have a camera then take some pictures of the plants and flowers that you find on your walk.

Activity: Write some sentences about what you saw on your walk. Try to find out the correct names of the plants and use adjectives to describe them.


Day 2

Today go on a tree hunt!

On your walk today have a look at all the different trees you see. Collect a leaf from each tree and bring them home to compare. You can compare size, colour shape and use the internet to learn the names of the trees.

Activity: Can you write a sentence to explain why the trees are full of green leaves at the moment? What will happen to some trees as we move through the year? Will all trees keep their leaves later in the year? Why not? What do we call these trees?

Day 1 - Plant Hunt
