Creative Writing

Good Morning Year 1 Children and Parents, 


Hope your weekend has been relaxing and refreshing and you’re ready for a new week of fresh challenges.

This week is a GREAT one, some would even say.. SUPER, because we are going to make our own COMIC STRIPS. Yes, that’s right! We'll be making comic strips with our own superheroes! How exciting!


We’re going to start off by reading a comic book.        Log into BUG CLUB, and you'll find the comic book ‘Wallace and Gromit: The Weatherman." 


You'll need to read this book with your family as it's very interesting but can be a bit tricky.


As you read the book, we'll like you to think about the features of the comic book, for example the colours, the style of writing and the setting. Also, how different is this book from the books you've read?

Now, write down some of your ideas and keep them safely for your next lesson.



Tuesday's Learning

Hello Year 1 Parents and Children,  
Today we would like you to create your own superhero character to star in your comic. You need to think about what he or she looks like, what their personality is like and, most importantly, their superpower.

You don’t need to use this format, you can use your own drawing if you wish. Just make sure you use as much descriptive language as you can.

Good luck!

Wednesday's Learning

Hello Year 1 Parents and Children,


Today, it’s time for you to plan your superhero comic book story!

You need to think about a clear beginning (where you set the scene and introduce your superhero), a problem (maybe a supervillain arrives and creates all kinds of chaos), and then an ending where the superhero defeats the problem and saves the day! You don’t need to use this format; you can use your own drawing if you wish. Just make sure you include as much detail as you can!

Have fun!

Good morning Year 1 parents and Children,


Now it’s time to create your comic storyboard. This means that it’s time to draw your story illustrations. Do not write your captions yet, as this will be a lesson later on this week. Make sure you draw them as clearly and detailed as you can, and include lots of colour and cool action shots! Once again, you don’t have to use this template! Feel free to create your own.

Best of luck!

Fred's Friday Message!

Dear children, 

Happy Friday!!! It’s Fred again…ribbet!

I hope you've had a fantastic week of learning. I've been reading your great stories and I'm very impressed with your spelling, punctuation, adjectives, illustrations and most of all your imagination!


Just give yourselves a 'rainbow clap' and...a 'marshmallow clap' for being the best authors.


I’m really going to miss you when you are away for the weekend. 


To keep me cheerful, I would like you to write a letter to me, telling me about all the interesting things you’ve done throughout the week. For example: your fun 'time' activities,  games you played, daily exercises, cooking activities, investigations and most of all your amazing learning.


Remember to use all your writing tools to make your writing readable. Can a frog actually read? Yes! I always use my two bulging eyes to see better and my webbed feet to open the pages.


So, get writing as I can't wait to read your  letters to the animals in the house.




Yours truly,  

Fred the Fabulous Phonics Frog (r-i-b-b-e-t )
