We are a Year 1/2 mixed class taught by Miss Wilkinson and supported by Miss Bonar.
The school day
In Year 1 and 2 our focus is early reading and writing skills. The children start the day with a short phonics session, learning new sounds and recapping previous ones to ensure fluency.
We then move onto a formal English input focusing on reading and writing basic skills. After assembly and break time, the children return for a formal maths input.
In the afternoon we cover foundation subjects. These include Science, Computing, History, Geography, Art, R.E., PSHE and D&T.
Monday is Class 4's P.E. day. Please ensure children have a P.E. kit to leave in school in case this changes. This consists of a white t shirt, blue shorts, and a pair of plimsoles. Please also ensure no jewellery or earrings are worn on this day.
Children will be read with individually as often as possible (minimum once per week), so please ensure reading books are brought in daily.
Homework is sent home on a Thursday evening and is to be returned by the following Tuesday. Homework will always relate to the topic or area of learning children have been covering that week. Your help and support with homework is greatly appreciated.
