Literacy Live Lesson 3 - KS1 / First Level

This literacy lesson is presented by CBeebies' Rebecca Keatley and Mr Smith from Bitesize Daily.

They read 'The Tale of a Toothbrush', explain how to write questions, explore alliteration, and investigate how we can help to protect the environment.

This is part of a series of weekly Live Lessons for Autumn 2020, designed to support children in catching up on literacy and numeracy as they return to school after lockdown.

Each week, we published two lessons, one for KS1/First Level and one for KS2/First & Second Level. The lessons are designed for use in the classroom, but are also suitable to be used at home should schools be closed again.

Please note that this lesson was published in 2020 and we are no longer reviewing emails and messages from schools for inclusion in the lesson or on the page.
