Remembrance Day


In our classes, we discussed what Remembrance Day was and what it meant. At 11 O Clock on Monday 11th November all children in Year One and Year Two held a 2 minute silence to remember all the people who fought and died. 

Phase 1 Sharing Afternoon. The children enjoyed working in their colour teams to create an 'under the sea' shoe box scene. There was a strong moral message underpinning the activity as each box had to illustrate the problem of plastics in our oceans. Thank you to all parents and carers who were able to join us. Special thanks to Marley, our photographer!

This is the powerpoint and handouts from the parent's information evening on reading and Phonics in Year One.

This is the powerpoint for the Year 2 Spelling Information Parents Evening we had on the 16.7.18.

Year 2 had so much fun bird ringing, mud bunting making and bread sticks in the fire pit at nature school on Friday!

Phase One Sports Day was a roaring success!

Explanation of reading across Phase 1

As your child enters Years 1 and 2, their reading will be taught and monitored differently than in Reception.

The ‘home’ reading book that your child brings home is a book of their choice for them to share with you. These are generally a book band lower than they are reading with the teacher so that it is an enjoyable experience for them and an opportunity for you to be part of their reading journey. These books can be changed as frequently as your child would like. Children really benefit from regular reading at home, so even if it is just 5 minutes a day, we would ask that you spend this time with your child.

In school, children read in a guided group. This is either with a teacher or teaching assistant once each week. This book is a more challenging text which we try to link to the genre we are currently teaching in English. This isn’t recorded in the home reading book. Instead, we record it in our class notes. During the guided group sessions, children have the opportunity to discuss text, predict what they think is going to happen and generally talk about books in order to promote not only an understanding but a love of reading too. Children will get the opportunity to read and apply their new phonics skills during these sessions as well as during our phonics sessions.

Please note that spelling or phonics homework is now attached to the weekly note. Please use the spelling book to attach completed homework.

Do you have a spare hour during the week to join our parent volunteers who listen to children reading in school? If so, please come and have a chat with one of us.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
