Y1 Talk for Writing ideas 'Space' and 'Ourselves'??

Discussion in 'Primary' started by zedzed, Jul 1, 2012.

  1. Can anyone recommend any texts that might work/ have worked well with Talk for Writing based on 'Ourselves' and 'Space' as themes?
    Trying to plan some units of work for Y1 around 'Ourselves' and 'Space' but it's often hard finding texts for TfW that work. Most appear too 'wordy' for this age group?!
    For 'Space' we are thinking perhaps 'Whatever Next'
    All ideas gratefully received though - we are struggling!!!

  2. SPACE: How about doing 'We're going on a bear hunt' and then 'We're going on an alien hunt' . . dodging meteor showers and rockets on the way? And there's always 'Aliens love underpants'. Ourselves? There's a good rigby red giant called 'All about me' and Eric Carle's 'Head to toe' would be nice for some really basic modelled sentence work.
  3. Can't you sleep little bear has moons and stars . . .depends how tenuous you want to be.

  5. Hello,

    I have covered a topic of Ourselves previously and have some ideas which may be of use to you.
