Welcome to Year One and Two

Hello! Welcome to Year One and Two. I hope you are as excited for the year ahead as I am. After what has been a strange year, it is lovely to see all of the chidlren happy and back in the classroom! This year we will continue to explore, learn and have lots of fun.

This half-term, our topic is 'Earth and Space' where we will be focusing on the book 'Look Up!' by Nathan Bryon in English. In Science, we will be learning about Everyday Materials. Our provision is themed around the topic and enables children to explore and build their understanding.

In Phonics and Reading, we do Read, Write Inc. and we are currently learning and reviewing Set 2 and 3 Sounds. 

We also do Outdoor Learning on Monday and Tuesday afternoon. These sessions focus on teamwork and teaching children risk management. Children are able to come in their own clothes for these sessions but please ensure they are wearing clothing suitable for the weather.

If you have any concerns please do not hesitate to contact me and if you think your concern requires a longer conversation please contact the office so that we can arrange an appropriate time.

Kind regards,

Mr. A. Coker



One of our main aims is that children will be condfident readers. To do this, we ask that children are read with at least four times a week at home. This could be: reading a story to your children; taking it in turns to read a story with your children; or your child reading one of the Read, Write Inc. books to you. The Read, Write Inc. books are read by the children in class during Phonics sessions and therefore your child should be able to read them confidently. We send these books home for your child to show you how much their reading is improving. We change books every three days, so we ask that if you have been reading at home they come back into school every day.

A list of spellings for the half-term is available from this class page for you to practise with your child at home. This practice is also an opportunity for you to support your child with their handwriting.



P.E. will be on a Tuesday afternoon. Please ensure your child wears a full P.E. kit on this day.


Behaviours and Attitudes

In Year One and Two, our classroom rules our Ready, Respectful and Safe. The children are regularly reminded of these expectations in all areas of school. We are working with the children to make them responsible citizens who respect the views of others. During class time, we encourage the children to be resilient in their approach to their work and to cooperate with the others in their class.
