In Year 1 and 2, we make sure that we have fun every day! We learn about the wider world and how we are all unique and special. We celebrate our achievements together and are proud to be members of our class.

PE Lessons

Our PE lessons are usually on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons. However, these days may change to accommodate other events so your child should have their PE kit in school for a full week.



Each week, your child will be given the following homework:

  • One piece of English or Maths (alternate weeks)
  • A reading book
  • Spellings (tested on Fridays)
  • A choice of activities from this half term’s Topic Grid (optional)

In addition, your child has a log-in for the following websites to support their independent study:

Times Tables Rock Stars

Bug Club 

Numbots – (username is the same as Rock Stars)
