Bringing Learning to Life - Our recent Castle & Fairytale Day

Please can we remind parents to make sure children are dressed appropriately for the weather and remember school may be a little cooler than normal as we will be keeping classrooms well ventilated. smiley


Reading books will be changed once a week, please speak to your child's teacher or email the office if you want to discuss your child's reading. Please record what your child has read in their reading records. Reading records and home learning books will be checked by teachers weekly.


On the days children have PE they should come to school dressed in their outdoor PE kit. They should wear joggers/shorts, t-shirt, jumper and trainers please. It is very important they have extra layers they can take on and off should the weather change.

Home Learning

If your child is in school, the home learning expectation in year 1/2 is that the children do the following learning at home

  • Daily reading (suggested time 10-15 minutes)
  • 1 spelling activity in their spelling book per week (5 words suggested time 10 minutes)
  • 1 maths activity from the sheet for the half term per week (suggested time 10-15 minutes)
  • 2-3 topic activities from the home learning ideas sheet per half term (time and activities are up to you)
  • Read to your child daily (suggested time 10-15 minutes)


The school also has access to the Spellingframe website which your child can use in addition to practising their spelling in their books. Please contact your child's class teacher if you need a copy of your child's log in information. You can also check out the school website maths and English pages for lots of other exciting things to do at home. 


If your child is isolating because of Covid and they are not ill, you can find the home learning they need to do on Seesaw. Please contact your child's class teacher through the office if you need any help with this. There are some further suggestions on the link below:

Year 1-2 Welcome Meeting Slides

Thank you to everyone who came to the Year 1-2 Welcome Meeting, it was lovely to have you there. You can find the slides from the meeting above. They contain lots of important information about how the school and year 1/2 works. If you have any further questions please contact your child's class teacher via the school office email addresses (in the slides) or speak to them at the door. 

Additional maths materials


Here are some extra activities for your child to do at home. These are aimed at pupils who may need a little extra practice and consolidation and are based on some the work done in class this half term.

The number bonds, doubles and halves games on 'Hit the Button' are also great for improving fluency.
