Welcome to Year 1/2's class page
Miss Booth is our class teacher and Mrs Knowles and Mrs Kazmierska help us with our learning.
The doors open at 8.50am and the school day starts at 9.00am. At the end of the day at 3.15pm, the children are brought to the ramp to be collected by their parents.
Homework each week will usually consist of:
1x Literacy and 1x Maths
and each half term:1 x Other (usually science or topic work)
Homework will be sent home on a Thursday and will be due back into school on or before the following Tuesday. If children ever have problems with their homework, please encourage them to speak to me about it as soon as possible. We can then go through it again together before it is due to be handed in.
- The children will be doing PE on Monday (indoor) and Wednesday (outdoor). Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school and that all items are clearly labelled. Trainers and a sweatshirt or jumper may be worn for outdoor PE.
- Children should have in school a small water bottle with a non-spill spout.
We change our books every Monday and Thursday. Please read with your child every evening and sign the Reading Diary. In the diary you will find questions to help you read with your child. The children need to be able to decode the words and also need to learn how to 'read for meaning'. The children should be able to read the book that they have chosen and answers questions about the book. They will have a task to complete once a week using their reading book to help them. Once the sheet is completed they will receive a certificate to celebrate this.
Later on in the school year, the children in Year 1 will be completing the phonics screening check. In preparation for this, the children can to play some games which use real and alien words.

Parent Pay: School is using a cashless system. Please remember that you can pay for all items such as school uniform, water bottles, PE and reading bags as well as school meals and trips via Parent Pay.
Class Dojo: The school is continuing to use the Class Dojo software as a reward system. Most parents are already signed up from last year but for those who aren't, a letter detailing how to sign up and access the app will be sent home with your child. Once downloaded, you will then be able to see how your child is getting on in class and have access to the message facility where I will post updates about the class.
