Year 1

Watch 'The Highway Rat' animation film again for a final time if required: 


BBC iPlayer - The Highway Rat


or go back to the story being read aloud.


The Highway Rat - Give Us A Story! - YouTube


Choose your favourite character in the story, from whom the Highway Rat steals food. Pretend you are that character.

Discuss how you are feeling and what you might be thinking.

Talk about what the police might ask you if you were to be interviewed.

Write some questions in role as a Police Officer to your chosen character.

Remember to include a question mark, e.g.

Who did you see? What did he look like? What did he ask for? What did he take?

When you have written your questions, pretend you are your favourite character and answer the questions. Practise saying them first, then write down your answers. Check for capital letters and full stops.

Community Friendship Recipe

Let’s imagine that today you are going to write a recipe for how to make a good friend or a community of friends.

What do you think you need to be a good friend? Gather some ideas from watching the clips below.

Little Voices: What Makes a Good Friend? - YouTube


The clip includes ingredients such as being kind, caring, helpful. Talk about the need to be a good friend. At present, agree that it is difficult for us to see our school friends, but ask: What can we do to try and be a good friend in our communities or family unit?

Talk to other members of your family to collect ideas.

Examples might include: drawing a rainbow to display, donating some food to the local food bank, cooking a meal for an elderly relative or neighbour, telling jokes to make people smile, clapping for the NHS, doing extra jobs round the house to help each other, sharing more with a brother or sister, video-calling a school friend to say hello, etc. 

Compose these ideas into a friendship recipe for your community.

Remember to include numbered instructions, time words and bossy verbs, e.g.

1. First of all, paint a rainbow to make everyone in ______________ smile.

2. Next, share your favourite toy with your younger brother.

3. Make an extra meal for Mrs Brown at number 11. She really will be very grateful!
