Raccoons (Year 1 W)

Subject help videos

Dear Parents and Carers,

We would like to share some short videos with you to enable you to understand how we teach each of the core subjects at school and how you can support your child with their learning at home.

Each video is subject specific although there are similarities between the Phonics and Reading videos.

Please use the links below to access these.







We hope these are both informative and useful.

Please do not hesitate to contact us via email to the school office if you have any questions.

Thank you for your continued support.

Kind regards,

Mrs Burgisser and Miss Hemmings

Welcome back Raccoons!

Welcome back to school after your Christmas holidays, we hope you had a lot of fun and are looking forward to a new year of learning.

This term our new topic will be ‘how to train your dragon!’

We are looking forward to learning about castles and how life was like in medieval time. We will also be looking at some dragon stories and making our own dragon, shield, castles and crown!

We feel it is important for us is to get you all settled back into school so we will continue to ensure that we understand our routines, expectations and good learning habits throughout this term.

On this page you will find:

-       The home learning grid for Spring term
