Hi Year One,

How was your week last week? Hopefully you enjoyed having a go at some of the learning on this page?

This week lots of your learning is based around a new text called ‘Greta and the Giants’, which you can listen to on the Video Resource Centre. Have fun and enjoy your week.


Listen to 'Greta and the Giant' being read by Mrs Maccabee on the Video Resource Centre. Then answer these questions about what you understand.


This week you are going to learn more about using exclamation marks. Use the website link from the overview to complete activties 1, 2 and 3.

Then practice using an excalmation mark by writing a message to the Giants from the story,  telling them to stop cutting down the trees and harming the environment. See the document below.
