Hello Year 1, This is my last story post for the term. I hope you have enjoyed watching them, I've had fun making them. This story is all about a little boy, Billy, who has lots of worries and he doesn't know what to do. Then some special people come along and help him. If you'd like to have a go at making your own worry dolls, you can follow the link below. I've got a whole village living in my house now!

Have a wonderful summer everyone and see you in September.
Lots of Love
Mrs Gratwick

Hello everyone, this week my story is about a sweet-munching monster. I had a go at drawing Smidge, before he started eating sweets. If you’d like to draw your favourite picture of him, I’d love to see it. Enjoy! 😀

Hello everyone, look what has happened in my house! I was so horrified that I thought I would read you a story about someone else who has to clean up a lot of poo! Hope you enjoy it.
Take care

Hello everyone,
So the story this week is about a little boy who BROKE HIS BUM! How funny is that? I bet you can't wait to see how he broke his bum. I've also added another video below which introduces a drawing club activity. If you would like to have a go, I'd love to hear/see your responses. You can now email me your pictures and writing through your purple mash account. Have fun and take care from Mrs Gratwick

Hey Year 1,
How are you all doing this week? I'm missing seeing you all so I thought I'd read you another story. This story is all about a monster called Max who likes to eat disgusting things. If you were a monster, what disgusting food would you eat or would you only eat delicious food? If you want to write to me about what you would eat, I'd love to hear your suggestions. Take care. Mrs Gratwick

There was an old lady who swallowed the sea

Hello year 1. So this weeks post is the crazy story of the lady who swallowed the sea! She is bonkers if you ask me. If you would like to join in singing with me and my helper, I’ve popped the words at the end of the video. What sea creatures would you swallow if you were in the sea? Would you swallow them whole or eat them in small pieces? How do you think you’d feel afterwards? If you’d like to write your own story about swallowing things, I’d love to hear your ideas. Take care. Mrs Gratwick
