Monkey Puzzle

In year 1 we are very proud of the progress the children are making in writing. This half term we are learning the talking story ‘Monkey Puzzle’. It is about a little monkey who has lost her Mum and goes on a search through the jungle to find her. We are having lots of fun retelling and acting out the story.

Together we rewrote the beginning and added some effective story features such as adjectives, power of 3, alliteration and a simile. We hung this on our writing washing line to help us with our learning.

Today the children wrote their own story beginning. They used their best handwriting and were very proud of their work. We have been working very hard in our phonics and handwriting sessions to make sure we are using our phonics to spell words correctly and forming our lower case and upper case letters beautifully. Keep up the super writing!
