Welcome to Year 1 and 2
We would like to start by thanking you for your support with reading at home. It is brilliant to see comments from parents in their reading diaries. Please make a note in your child’s book if they have reached the end of their book. We can then ensure a new book comes home. If we do not have this message from you we will not change their book.
P.E. will take place on Monday and Friday for both classes so make sure kit is in school at all times. Can we remind you that if your child has their ears pierced and they cannot take their studs out they must bring tape to cover them for P.E. lessons.
There will be three different groups each morning for literacy and maths taught by Mrs Shovlin, Mrs Graham and Mrs Walker/Mrs Bouch. We hope your child enjoys talking to you about what they are up to in these lessons and their homework each week will help you see.
Homework will be given out each Wednesday and needs to be back in school by the following Monday. It will consist of spellings and a maths task as well as daily reading of their reading book.
Finally, we would like to let you know that our topic this half term is ‘Food Glorious Food’ which will involve children finding out about where different foods come from and why we need to eat different types of food. Our afternoons will involve children working in class around this topic as well as going into our continuous provision room (the middle classroom) to develop their own learning in lots of different areas.
