Other info

Welcome to the Year 1/2 page. Mrs Kilburn's class

On this page you will find information about all the different things that are happening      in our class.


   Congratulations to all the children- we won the Attendance Cup for the Autumn Term.

      Let's aim to do the same this term.

 Some things you need to know:


  • PE will be on a Wednesday  and  Friday - please make sure your child has their PE kit in school for these days
  • Reading - your child will need their reading book every day - please make sure they bring their book bag in!

  • We follow the Oxford Reading Tree Scheme supported by appropriately levelled books to extend and develop the children's reading skills. The books are colour banded and matched to the child's ability.

    We have an expectation that the children read with an adult at home at least three times per week and that a comment is written in your child's reading diary. Our reading challenges allow children who read regularly at home to win books. Last year we gave away over 200 books.

      Phonics  and spelling are taught daily using Letters and Sounds alongside Jolly Phonics. 

      Year 1 children need to develop an understanding of the 2, 5 and 10 times table, as well as these Year 2 need to extend their understanding to the 3 times table.
