Pizza fractions!  We found a really tasty way to learn about halves and quarters in maths.

Maths

Throughout school we follow the White Rose Hub maths planning, which is based upon the National Curriculum and encourages a mastery approach to learning. Please find below the overviews for Reception, Year 1 & Year 2 maths. 

Homework

Years 1 & 2 Maths homework will be sent home each Thursday, to be returned the following Wednesday.  Reading books will be changed when completed.  Please make a note of this in your child's reading record.

Reception children have a sound book, these will be updated each week with the new sounds they have learnt in phonics.

Reading

We are often asked whether there are any books which we can recommend for pupils.  The website:  https://schoolreadinglist.co.uk/  shows lots of good choices for individual year groups.

Spellings

Please find the Year 1 and Year 2 Common Exception Word lists.  These are words children in these year groups are expected to know and use in their written work.
