Welcome to Years 1/2

Year 1

We are lucky enough to have two teachers. Mrs Harmse teaches us on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and Mrs Ferguson teaches us on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday. Ms Beattie is our senior teaching assistant and works with us all week. Mrs Green is another senior teaching assistant who works with us every afternoon.

A typical day in our class consists of Phonics, English and Maths and then our afternoons are filled with the wider curriculum where we learn about our local environment, Art, DT, Music, PSHE, RE, Music, History and Geography. We enjoy learning challenge questions where we apply what we have learned.


Year 2

In the afternoons Mrs Harmse teaches us on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and Mrs Ferguson teaches us on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday. Mrs Green and Mrs Holliday are senior teaching assistants who also work with us every afternoon.

Years 1/2

You will have seen our knowledge organisers which show parents what we are studying this half term. The Knowledge Organisers tell you key facts and important vocabulary which the children will learn over the next few months. It would be wonderful if you could spend time looking at them together at home and discussing what the children are learning in school.

This half term we will be studying:

  • Healthy living, including diet, keeping clean and the importance of sleep
  • The names of the countries which form the UK and their capital cities
  • Developing our observational drawing and colouring skills

Spellings will be sent home weekly and will be stuck into the home-work books. Spellings will be checked every Wednesday, with new spellings issued on the same day.

Please can we ask that reading bags are brought into school every day – as we read with your child during the week to see how they are getting on. Books are changed weekly and link with the phonics work the children are learning. Please use the parent email to message us in school whilst the Covid restrictions are in place – we check this daily.
