Year 1/2

Welcome to Year 1/2T!

We are a mixed Year 1 and Year 2 class! I am your child's teacher and I will be in school Monday to Thursday. Mrs Murray, who is a HLTA, will be taking the class on a Friday. Mrs Seal is our TA this year and is with us every morning. 

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.

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.

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. 

Phonics and Spellings

Each week a letter will be sent home with our phonics focus for the week and also any key vocabulary that we are learning and using in our writing. The phonics focus will be different for year one and two. It would be beneficial for children to practise the phonic focus and to read and write the key vocabulary from our English lessons. 


The children will be doing PE on Tuesdays and Thursdays. 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 30minutes 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. Every third week we will be taking part. A text will be sent out as a reminder.
