Raccoons (Year 1 W)

UPDATE: 19/3/2018 - Home Learning

It appears the poems for this weeks' Home Learning were not attached to the original Year 1 & 2 grid packs - our apologies! 

Please instead continue to focus on reading with your child, or indeed seek out/ discuss their favourite poem with them. We will be studying 'Senses Poems' in class, so if there are any inspirational poems that children would like to research this week (which include sights/ sounds/ smells/ tastes or feelings), they are more than welcome to bring these into class to share; we would love to hear them!

Mr Riordan.


w/c 19th February 2018 - Welcome back, Raccoons!

I hope you enjoyed your half-term break and are relaxed, refreshed and ready to learn! This Spring 2 half-term our topic will be 'Fighting Fit'. We will develop our scientific skills as we study the human body, understanding how diet and exercise helps us, and learn more about our senses. In English, we will be reading animal journey stories, writing our own towards the end of term. This will help us with understanding more about how we classify animals. There will, of course, be lots of creative opportunities as we explore some exciting artists and their work! 

Raccoons are also lucky to be chosen to have additional sports lessons every Friday! An external coach will be coming into school each Friday to teach us some new skills, so PE kits will now need to be in school for the whole week.

On this page you will find:

   - The home learning grid for the Spring 2 half-term

   - New spellings

   - Topic grid for 'Fighting Fit'

The documents listed above, which can be found at the bottom of this page, have all been refreshed for this half term. We will be aiming to add more documents, links and information which will support your child's ongoing learning throughout the course of the half term.


Important information:

   - PE days – Tuesday, Thursday AND FRIDAY FOR SPRING 2 HALF TERM. Please make sure your child’s PE kit is in school on a Monday morning. Kits will come home on Friday.

   - Home Learning, including folders with the Home Learning Grids at the front, need to be in by Tuesday each week. Home learning activities will be sent home on a Friday. 

   - Spelling books should come into school on a Thursday ready for Friday spelling tests.

Kind regards,

Mr Riordan and Mrs Sherwood.
