Year 1/2

 Welcome to Year1/2

Weekly Overview

Phonics – Phase three sounds oo & ee. The children have looked at words using these sounds and have written sentences.

In English the children have looked at the story Oi Frog, we have learned about questions and statements and the correct punctuation needed for these. The children have thought of different animals and seats which rhyme, they have then used these to create their own version of ‘Oi Frog’. During maths, year one and two have been looking at measurement. The children have been using hand span and rulers to measure different objects. Year two have also been estimating the length of lines. In topic the children have gathered facts about the Great Fire of London ready to write a newspaper article after the half term break. In science the children thought about how to care for different animals and created a poster to explain.

A few friendly reminders…

Reading is of the utmost importance, children should be reading at home every night. Please could an adult record pages read and write a brief comment in the reading diary. Children will read to the teacher twice a week, these days have been written on the front of reading diaries. Please can the children bring their reading books and diary into school on their reading days.

P.E will be on Friday this year so please ensure children wear their PE kits to school on that day. For P.E. children can wear plain red, grey or black jogging bottoms or leggings with a white t-shirt.

Early morning work begins at 8.30 each day and is mainly spent practicing key aspects of English and Maths. Therefore, I feel that it is beneficial for children to arrive on time.

Homework will be set on a Friday on class dojo to be uploaded by the following Thursday. There will be a piece of English, a piece of Maths and spellings.

Thank you,

Mrs Northcott

We would welcome any resources you may have at home that you feel could enhance your child’s learning in any part of the curriculum that we are studying. This may be in the form of information books, guidebooks and leaflets collected on visits to places of interest that you have made with your family. Even better, if you feel that any experiences of your own are relevant to the curriculum, it would be wonderful if you could come and share them with the class.

Thank you,

Mrs Northcott
