Year 1/2

Welcome to Year 1/2!

Our new topic for Summer 2 will be OUTDOOR ADVENTURERS! We have got lots of lovely, exciting things ready for you to do. Log on to Seesaw to see everything we have planned for you for the half term. 


Please do keep sending in show and tell via Seesaw. 


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 now find the blended learning they need to do on Seesaw. Please contact your child's class teacher through the office if you need any help with this. 


Please can we remind parents to make sure children are dressed appropriately for school, send in sunhats, put sun cream on at home before school and make sure your child has a water bottle everyday. (You can send extra sun cream into school, but children will need to be able to apply this themselves and will not be allowed to share). smiley


As before, 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 and use the book marks to ask them questions about what they are reading. Reading records and home learning books will be checked and marked by class teachers in the last week of each half term. 


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. 


PE days for Hardwick are 

Mrs Swann's and Mrs Emery's class Monday and Wednesday

Mr Regan's class Monday and Thursday


PE days for Cambourne are 

Mrs Murdoch's class Wednesday and Thursday

Miss Galloway's class Tuesday and Thursday

Mrs Jodin's class Tuesday and Thursday


We are looking forward to another half term of fun and interesting learning! 


Best wishes, 

The KS1 Team

Year 2 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 (Autumn 1).

Next half term (Autumn 2) we are focusing on addition and subtraction. Here are some activities to help improve fluency in adding and subtracting numbers within 10 and 20:

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