Continue to write our stories

Recap on previous story writing.

We have written the beginning where we introduced the character and the setting, we have also written the problem as Sally the Strawberry has seen in your class lunch boxes and it is all unhealthy food.


We are now going to write the end where we have a solution to our problem.

So we need Sally the Strawberry to help us become healthy eaters.


Example; Sally the Strawberry wanted to help the children be healthy.


We are using ‘ed’ at the end of want because it is in the past.

Her friends

So Sally the Strawberry can’t do this job alone so asks her friends to come and help.

Think of 3 friends to help Sally the Strawberry. Choose a fruit or vegetable and think of their names using alliteration and capital letters.

She asked her friends Benny the Banana, Ronny the Running Radish and Carol the Carrot to come and help her.


Explain that one of her friends is going to explain to the children about what foods are healthy and how they help our bodies.

Benny the Banana said that milk is good because it keeps our teeth strong.

Think of your own healthy food.


What else makes us healthy?


Ronny the Running Radish said running outside keeps us fit.

Think of your own exercises and what are they good for?


Do the children now understand how to eat and be healthy? Yes


The children were happy to learn about healthy food. They promised to stop eating so much junk food. Now 1LG/1AM is the healthiest class at Camrose!”

Near doubles

In year 1 children should know the following:

1+1=2, 2+2=4, 3+3=6, 4+4=8, 5+5=10, 6+6=12, 7+7=14, 8+8=16, 9+9=18, 10+10=20.

Children should use these skills to solve addition problems involving near doubles for example; if 6+6=12 I know that 6+7, should be 1 more than 12, so 6+7=13. Challenge your child with similar questions.

Place value

Children should be able to identify 1 more and 1 less than a number practise this using the 100 square you created last time.

Here is a fun mystery to solve using place value, tens and ones. Mystery pack
