Join Year 1 and Mrs Poole on Microsoft teams at 9.30 a.m. to listen to the story of 'Can't You Sleep Little Bear?' by Martin Waddell & Barbara Firth

Here is the story again on video, if you were unable to join the class on Microsoft teams this morning, or would like to listen to it again.

Next, scroll down to find two activities to do today about the story. Do the art activity first and then do the English activity next. It is important that you do them in this order, because you need to use the picture you have drawn for your English activity.

Today, you are going to think about how the bears felt in the story and think about some words to describe their feelings. Before you do this I would like you to try and draw a bear from the story. You can choose to draw 'Big Bear' or 'Little Bear.' To help you, there is a fun video from 'Draw with Rob' to show you how to draw a bear. In his video he is going to draw a Superhero bear. I just want you to draw the bear today, without the cape, mask and clothes to turn him into a Superhero bear, but you can always draw your own Superhero bear later on if you want to! 

#DrawWithRob 15 Superhero Bear

Use this video from Rob Biddulph to help you draw your bear and colour it in. Make sure you draw it in the middle of your piece of paper, with room around the top, middle and sides for writing some labels for your English work, later on.

Once you have drawn your bear and coloured it in carefully, write at the top of your page whether it is 'Big Bear' or 'Little Bear'. Now go to the English activity on the class page, to find out what to do next. You will need to use your drawing for this activity.
