Happy New Year. Our topic for Spring is


Peep into the Past

We will be looking at how life has changed within living memory. This will include toys, music, shops and how we spend our leisure time. If you have any items or information which would help us teach the children about the past can you please let your class teacher know. Please see below our topic web for this term.


In English we will  focus on  the key skills needed in Year 1 and 2 - these will include handwriting, spellings of everyday words and using capital letters and full stops in the correct place.  We will also be developing our stamina for writing when completing longer writing tasks and also looking at some non-fiction texts.

We will be looking at a wide range of texts including,

Peepo, Major Glad, Major Dizzy and Winnie the Pooh.



To find out what we'll be doing in all areas of the curriculum, please download our topic web.


Reading is an essential life skill and as a result we place a strong emphasis on children becoming confident, strong readers who enjoy reading for purpose and pleasure. To support us in developing confident readers, we ask you to read with your child daily. Please remember to make a quick note in your child's reading record book every time you have read at home. 



Maths and English homework will continue to be set every Monday and will need to be completed by the following Monday. We will now be using Spelling Shed and My Maths. You should have received new logins for both My Maths and Spelling Shed. The Spelling Shed passwords are stuck in your child’s reading record books. Your child's My Maths password came home on a seperate sheet - please keep this safe!


Children in KS1 have P.E. every Wednesday afternoon. Please ensure your child has the correct P.E. kit with them and their water bottle.


If you have any questions concerning your child’s learning in KS1 please see their Class Teacher initially and then Mrs Rookes.



We look forward to an exciting term ahead.
