Year 1/2

Welcome to Year 1/2T!

We are a mixed Year 1 and Year 2 class! I am your child's teacher. Mrs Seal is our TA this year and is with us every morning and covers my PPA on a Wednesday afternoon.

On our class page, you will find some important information about our class, key dates and events and updates about our class adventures together through the year.

If you have any questions, queries or concerns and you can't speak to me personally, please feel free to email myself Monday-Friday. 

Mrs Thomasson's email address is sthomasson@wesleymps.com

Reading Books

Reading books are checked and changed if needed at school each Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I ask that children read a small amount (just a few pages is fine) each night. Each time your child reads please sign their reading diary as this will then be checked at school each Monday, Wednesday and Friday. High Frequency words will be stuck into your child's reading for them to practise reading too. They will be given 5 dojos every time they read.

Bug Club have a large selection of additional books that are interactive and your child has their login in their reading diary. This can be accessed at home alongside the app Teach Your Monster to Read which helps to practise their phonics skills. 

Reading Pets

Reading Pets will be coming home for your child to enjoy a book with someone at home. The book can be read to them or shared together for them to enjoy. Please ensure it is returned the following day, so every child can take home a reading pet in the week.

Phonics and Spellings

Each week a spelling test on Spelling Frame will be set, which is linked to the phonics or spelling rule for that week. The phonics focus will be different for year one and two. It would be beneficial for children to practise the phonic focus and to practise reading and writing these words.

PE

The children will be doing PE on Mondays and Tuesdays. Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school and that all items are clearly labelled. Please continue to encourage children to practise getting dressed at home to help them get changed quickly in school. PE kits are to be kept at school all through the half term. No jewellery is to be worn on PE days. If stud earrings have to be kept in, please can you send in plasters for your child to cover their ears. 

‘Good to be Green’ and ‘Class Dojos’

We will be continuing to use the ‘Good to be Green’ positive behaviour system in the classroom, children should aim to stay on a green card to receive 30 minutes Golden Time on a Friday plus other rewards. In addition to this children will receive ‘dojo points’ for hard work, good behaviour, good manners etc. 

Forest School

In Year 1 and Year 2, children will receive some time taking part in Forest School activities. Children will always be outside and will need to ensure they have appropriate clothing for any weather.  A text will be sent out as a reminder. Forest school has been postponed at the minute.
