It's lovely to be back at school!
The children have settled quickly, adapting well to the new routines.
Over the next few weeks we will be revisiting prior learning. We will be focusing on phonics and reading. I will post an overview of our phonics and spelling patterns so please practise these at home with your child. Year 2 children will be revisiting already taught sounds to prepare them for the phonics screening check after half term.
All children should have brought a reading book home by now. Books can be returned on a Wednesday and new ones will be given out.
If you have any queries or questions please do not hesitate to contact me through the new email.
Just a reminder that reading books stay at home and are only returned on a Wednesday, if your child has read the books they can reread them to increase pace and fluency.
On a Wednesday afternoon I have my P.P.A time so Miss Buckingham will teach Science to the class.
Friday 18th September
Today your child should have come home with their Spelling Shed password. I have put the year 1 and year 2 common exception words on Spelling Shed for the children to practise. I have uploaded all the words but we will concentrate on a few each week in class (please see the spelling overview ). The children need to be able to read and spell these words and they are tricky so please support your child at home with this.
Next Friday I will post the homework activities that can be completed in your own time, although I would like to see the homework activities before half term. If you could photograph any activities your child is really proud of and email them to me and I will share them in school. Every Monday I will upload an overview of activities that we will be doing in school. If your child is absent from school they can complete them at home, if they are well enough to do so. If you have any problems logging in at home to Spelling Shed or have any questions; no matter how small, please get in touch using the class email.
Welcome to Year1/2!
