Welcome to Years 1 & 2

We hope you all had a fantastic summer and are ready for the new school year.

In Year 2, this half term, our topic is Street Detectives. The children will learn about what home and school life was like a long time ago and how it has changed. They will also be learning about the features of their local area and how it has changed over the years. During this topic, the children will be walking around the local area and looking at the different types of homes and businesses in Moorends.

In Year 1, this half term, our topic is Memory Box. The children will be learning about how things have changed over time. They will be looking at how toys have changed even within their living memory.

Reading

In KS1, books are changed regularly. Please write in your child’s reading diary to say that they have read the book at home. Your child will take part in the whole school Reader Leader competition where, if children read three times or more per week, they could be in with a chance of receiving a certificate. This is celebrated in assembly each week. At the end of each term, the class with the most Reader Leaders will win a prize.

PE

Year 2 PE is on a Thursday afternoon and Year 1 on a Wednesday afternoon. Please make sure your child’s PE kit is in school on that day or, ideally, brought in to school on a Monday and left until Friday.

If you have any questions then please ask.

Thank you for your support,

Miss Richardson, Miss Powell, Mrs Brackenbury and Miss Markham
