Year One were delighted to receive a ‘Thank You’ letter and a present from the Queen this week! She thanked us for inviting her to our Royal Garden Wedding Party and sent us three books about some of the things she owns: The Queen’s Hat, The Queen’s Handbag and The Queen’s Knickers! We noticed that each title of these books began in the same way and they all had an apostrophe which we later found out was used for the ‘possessive s’. We then wrote our own lists of some things that the Queen owns using the ‘possessive s’. After reading ‘The Queen’s Hat’ we learned about some Royal traditions; that you should never give the Queen your back! You should also never touch the Queen! When we read ‘The Queen’s Handbag’ we learned that the United Kingdom is made up of four countries: England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland and we found some of the locations in the story on a map of the United Kingdom. We also wrote a list of some powerful travel verbs in the past tense. Did you know that the past of ‘fly’ is ‘flew’ and the past of ‘drive’ is ‘drove’?
