Summer Term 2019 in Y1/2


General notices:

  • This half term we will have PE on Tuesdays and Fridays.  Please ensure your child has a full PE kit in school on these days. As long as the weather is nice, we will be using outside as much as possible.
  • Spellings will come home each week on a Monday and then will be tested the following Monday.
  • Number facts tests will be on a Monday in maths groups.
  • Reading books can be changed on Mondays and Thursdays. Children will change their books themselves. Please see a member of the KS1 team if there are any issues with this!
  • Remember to keep up the reading! Record each time that you read with your child in their reading record. Those children that read 5 times in the week will be rewarded with a stamp in their book and a sticker on the 5 Star Reader chart. Each half-term we will celebrate those children who have consistently been 5 Star Readers!
