Welcome To Year 1/2

About the Class Teacher

Hello and welcome to Year 1/2’s class website page. Here you will find a bit about me along with any important information to help you throughout the year.  I have been teaching at Moorfield Primary School for many years now both in the infants and the juniors.  This year we have lots of exciting topics planned in which we will share with you below.

 

PE 

Our PE day is on a Thursday, please come into school in your full PE kit and all black trainers.

 

Expectations for reading at home

The expectation for reading at home in Year 1 is a minimum of 3 times per week. I check reading records every week and look closely at home many pages children are reading at home.

 

History/Geography Topic

This term, we will be studying changes through living memory during history and geography. We will look closely at how toys, holidays and school have changed using the phrase “then and now”. We will pay particular attention to chronological order.

 

Science Topic

This term in Science we will be focusing on materials. We will look at a variety of different materials and carry out an investigation to find out how much light different materials let through them.

 

Homework Days – SPAG/Reading/Maths

Each week I will give out either a maths or topic homework on Friday which is due in on the following Tuesday. We have a spelling test every Friday and the spellings for the Autumn term have already been sent out in a letter and emailed out. Reading at least three times a week is also part of homework.

 

Celebrations/Achievements

I would just like to say how thrilled I am with my Year 1/2 class and how much I have enjoyed getting to know them already. They have settled into their new routine brilliantly and work hard every day. Keep it up Year 1/2!
