Year 1/2

Welcome Back


It has been great to see all the children come back into school and enter my class so happy and settled. Our Topic this half term is ‘This is me’. We have already had great fun labelling and learning body parts.

We are trying to limit the amount of stuff that is going between home and school. Please help by only sending your child to school with their coat and a lunch box if not having school dinners. Every child has got a school drinks bottle in class that we wash and fill regularly.


Reading - We are going to send reading books home on Thursday’s in my class. We will send two books home each week and we ask that you read and re-read these to help children with their word recognition and understanding.


PE is going to be on Tuesday – we are not going to be getting changed for this but please have suitable footwear, or send in a pair of trainers.


Forest Schools is going to be on a Friday afternoon so please come to school in suitable non-school uniform clothes for forest schools. You will need to bring wellies, waterproof trousers and a water proof coat. At the end of the day children will go home in their forest school clothes.


Spelling - A list will be sent home with children on a Friday for them to be tested on the following Friday. This list will also be available on Spelling Shed for children to use.


Login details will be sent home very soon for Edmodo, Sum Dog, Spelling Shed, Times Tables Rock Stars and Read Theory.


I am looking forward to the rest of the year

Kind Regards Mr Walton
