Welcome to Year 1/2 Class Page!


We will share with you our learning journey on this page.  You can also find useful links to websites and access homework and video clips which may help children extend their learning.


Throughout the next 2 years, the children will learn the skills to become great readers through daily Read Write Inc sessions. They will build upon what has already been taught in Foundation, including how to decode, segment and blend words. These skills will help them in English lessons when they are producing pieces of writing with the Jane Consodine approach to teaching. The children are encouraged to use their knowledge of phonics to help them when spelling/writing words. To assist with this, there are a range of resources within the classroom, including sound mats, to support them with this.


Along with daily RWI and English lessons, we have a daily Maths lesson which once again builds on their knowledge of number from Foundation and introduces a range of mathematical concepts that the children will need to know before moving into KS2. As all children learn in different ways, there are a range of resources and concrete materials to support the children with this. 


Afternoons consist of a range of  subjects, including Science, Religious Education, PSHCE, Computing, Geography/History, Art/Design & Technology and PE.


PE will take place every Friday, however it is helpful to have your child's PE kit in school on a Monday and left for the rest of the week, just in case any changes are made to the timetable or if an extra PE session is added.  


Homework is set via Seesaw on a Friday and is expected to be completed and handed in by the following Thursday. 

I hope that you find all of this information helpful and I look forward to sharing our class journey with you throughout the year.
