EYFS, Year 1 & Year 2

Welcome to our class page, I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Year!

I am very excited for . This half term our topics are Past and Present in EYFS and Animal Planet in Y1/2, we will be using these topics as the basis for lots of our learning. Please see the overview documents attached to this page to see what we will be learning in each curriculum area.

Homework – New homework and reading books are collected in each Monday and handed out on a Tuesday. Our homework expectations are to read 4x a week, complete weekly phonics homework, access Numbots (EYFS/Y1) or Timestable Rockstars (Year 2) for 10 minutes per week and complete 4 activities from the homework grid per half term.

Reading – We continue to promote a love of reading within our school and by doing this hope it will open many doors for your children throughout their school journey and beyond. The children will have a daily phonics session as well as enjoy stories times throughout the day in our class. Each week, the children will come home with 3 reading books, one phonics book that they have read the week before in school, another phonics book that is unseen and a ‘reading for pleasure’ book, this is a sharing story and not one that the children are expected to read but one to share and enjoy with someone at home. For Year 2 children who have completed the phonics programme, they will now access spelling and guided reading sessions. They will bring home books form the whole school reading programme; Accelerated Reader (AR), more information can be found about AR under the parents tab. Please remember to sign your child’s reading journal every time they read!
