Hello again Year One, and happy Wednesday! heart


Did you enjoy your activity yesterday? Some of the work we’ve been sent in on SeeSaw is fantastic! We are so super proud of you! (Don’t forget if you haven’t sent your work in or even signed up to Seesaw yet, do that as soon as you can!).


Do you remember yesterday when we asked you to have a think about the moral of the story?  A moral is something that tells you what is right and wrong. And sometimes, in stories, they have morals running through the story to teach us about right and wrong. There are loads of stories that do this – and Jabuti is just another example.


Let’s see if you can have another read and spot the message in the story.

Jabuti the Tortoise



LO: To learn about a moral behind a  story. 


Today your task is to read through Jabuti the Tortoise and try and figure out the moral of the story. Remember, a moral is a message that is delivered through something. What do you think the secret message could be in this story? We would like you to write a few sentences explaining the moral of this story, and then try and relate it to an experience that you have had in your own life. Best of luck! 





I wonder if you could use the following keywords in your writing today (remember, they need to be spelt correctly! Have a go at practising them first...) 


Keywords: moral, message, story


2. CHALLENGE - Contracted Words


I wonder if you could use some of the contracted words in some of your writing as well. Remember, a contracted word is a shorter version of a common phrase. 


Contracted words:

                                you are - you're

                                do not- don't 

                                I have -  I've

                                They are -  They're

                                They have - They've



Make sure you remember all those important writing skills that we always talk about. You need to have neat handwriting, that is on the line. You need to make sure you are using capital letters, full stops and finger spaces whilst rehearsing your sentences out loud before you write them. Best of luck and don’t forget to send them into Seesaw when you’re finished!
