Welcome to Year 1/2

Welcome back to school, I hope you have all had a relaxing Summer holiday. We are excited for the year ahead and are pleased that the children have all come back ready and very eager to learn.

In English, we will be looking at different stories focusing on characters, settings and story structure.

In Maths, we will be focusing on place value, number recognition and shape.

In Science, we will be looking at Living Things and Habitats.

Homework will be sent home on a Friday and should be returned the following Wednesday. Can we please ask that you help and support your child to complete all homework set. Each week children will receive spellings and a maths task related to what we have been learning in class that week.

Please listen to your child read their home reading book every night and write a small comment in their reading records. It is important to question your child’s understanding of what they have read. Books will be changed every Monday.

Please remember PE is on Monday and Tuesday and your child must be in full kit every week. PE kit is; black shorts, white polo shirt and black pumps.

Children in year 2 can buy a drink and snack from the snack trolley during morning playtime. They can choose from orange or apple juice and a variety of fruit. Both drinks and fruit are 20p each. If you would like to pay for the week, please put the money in a named envelope and hand it in at the beginning of the week. Alternatively, your child can bring in 20p per day.

To ensure the best possible learning in school your child needs to arrive on time (8.50am) and attend school every day. Please inform school immediately of the reason for any pupil absence.
