Friday 18th February - WIND DAY

Dear Year 1,


We're so sad not to see you on the last day before half term. Don't worry, we have left you some fantastic learning for you to do at home. We hope you will enjoy!

Keep safe inside and have a super day!


From all of the year 1 staff, have a wonderful half term break!

Mrs Coyston, Mrs Stollery & Mrs Cray

Cursive Handwriting


Write your second poem using the same structure as 'I'm a little penguin' for support. 

In class, we collected lots of ideas about albatrosses (expanded noun phrases and verbs). These are on our washing line at school but you could use some of my ideas (in documents below video). If you would prefer to write your poem about a seal, that is fine too. 


Things to remember;

  • Use interesting adjectives
  • Use expanded noun phrases large, round eyes (Remember the comma)
  • Use the -ing suffix for present tense verbs
  • Start a new sentence for each new idea
  • Play with language - you could use some alliteration sleek, slippery skin


When you have finished your poem, stand up and perform your poem in front of your family using expression in your voice.


Extra Challenge: If you would like an extra challenge, you could also include some adverbs in your poem. 

E.g. Soaring quickly through the air

Hungrily hunting for their prey

Galumphing clumsily over the cold, slushy snow


You might like to make your poems into a little poetry book. Over the holidays, if you have enjoyed poetry, you might even write more poems about other animals you like.
