Peace at Last

Over the next couple of weeks, in English, we will be learning to recognise and join in with predictable phrases from a familiar text. Our book at the moment is ‘Peace at Last’ by Jill Murphy.

This week we have started by reading ‘Peace at Last’ and learning the story of Mr Bear- who tries to fall asleep in different places all over the house!

We have some brilliant actors and actresses in Year One who retold the story with great imagination.  Then we did a Hot Seat task, with the children answering questions from Mr Bear’s point of view.

How you can help at home:

  • Reenacting ‘ Peace at Last’ with different family members playing the different characters.
  • Go around the house and listen carefully (using one of our senses- our hearing) to

find out what makes noises around your house. This links to our current learning in Science.
