Welcome to Year 1/2

"The Circus!"




In Year 1/2, we have decided to base our classroom

and reading area on the theme  "The Circus".  

Our Class book will be 'Nell and the Circus of Dreams'




We shall also be reading a range of Circus themed books in our class,

including Fiction and Non-fiction books.







Meet the team...

Our Class Timetable - Spring





  • Reading books should be read at home at least 4 times per week.                                                   Can your child read the book independently using their phonic knowledge and skills?                   Can they answer different types of questions linked to our reading gems about what they have read?  Help us reach our reading at home target each week by listening to your child read each day and signing their reading record.



  • Homework will be uploaded to Seesaw on Thursdays. Homework must be completed by Tuesday each week. Read and respond books will have a record card each week so that you know which pages/chapter to read to your child (Please read no further!). Our read and respond lessons are on Fridays so this must be completed by then.


  • Library sessions are on Monday each week. Children will have the opportunity to visit our school library and borrow a book to take home!



  • PE kits must have names clearly written on each item of clothing. Please wear PE kits to school on a Tuesday and a Thursday. Our PE days can change half termly. Don't forget your trainers!



  • Milk can be paid for online and costs £1.05 per week.



  • Water bottles will be taken home every Friday to be washed. Children can bring these back to school on Mondays. Water bottles can be bought for £1 from the school office.


Attendance and punctuality matter!


Missed minutes = missed learning = missed opportunities!

Good attendance means..... the best chance of success so EVERY SCHOOL DAY COUNTS!
