Reading Books

Please listen to your children read daily. When the children are confident with the text, their book will be changed.  Please ensure book bags are in school each and every day as we will be reading with each child throughout the week.


P.E Days

Year 1 have P.E weekly and the day will be confirmed with a sign on the door.  Please ensure that your child has their P.E kit at school on this day. Hair should be tied up and earrings MUST be removed on these days. Your child will not be able to join in with P.E if they have earrings in.



Homework is set every Friday via J2E. This will direct you to access Reading Eggs and Maths Seeds where your children will complete an English and Maths task. Please support your child in completing these tasks. Their logins for J2E, Reading Eggs and Maths Seeds can be found inside their reading journals. If you encounter any problems, please speak to your class teacher. 

Class Blog ~ Thursday 15th July 2021



We have been writing letters to Mr Coulson, our new year 2 teacher! We told him our name and age. We shared our favourite colour and tried to impress him by asking him his favourite colour so we could use a question mark! We told him what we like about school and shared what we want to improve next year so he can help us! 



In Maths this week we have continued looking at time. We read, wrote and showed half past times. We know it is half past when the big hand has moved half way around the clock to number 6. We then explored seconds, minutes and hours to understand units of time. We had to see how many different activities we could do in 1 second, 5 seconds and 10 seconds. We then had to decide if activities would take us ten seconds, one minute or one hour. 



In computing this week, we used maps and beebots to plan routes using algorithms. We applied our maths knowledge of forwards, backwards and turns to direct the beebot around the map.



In Geography this week, we completed our final topic work on explorers. We went through all the learning we had completed and couldn't believe how much we had learnt!


Sports Day

On Tuesday afternoon, we went onto the field for our Sports Day session! We had such a great time with our egg and spoon races, throwing competition and long jump challenge! We finished the afternoon off with a game of stuck in the mud and duck, duck, goose!
