Our Class Information


We are a class of Year 1 and Year 2 children. We are taught by Mrs Holroyd, Mrs Haigh and Miss Mullen. 

 Our PE day is on Tuesday and Wednesday, remember to wear your outdoor P.E. kit on both of these days.

We will change reading books every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Remember to get your reading record signed and keep colouring your reading label to collect your reading reward!

To support learning in school, we would like to see you go on TT Rockstars and spelling shed daily and read your reading book for at least 10 minutes a day.

Helpful resources!

Please find below some helpful resources that you may use with your child at home.


Year 1 & 2 Common Exception Words

These are words that cannot be sounded out phonetically and children need to be able to read and spell off by heart.


Phase 1 Sounds

Phase 2 Sounds

Phase 3 Sounds

Phase 4 Sounds

Phase 5 Sounds

These are phonics sound that your child will be learning in school to help them read and write. You could use these sound mats to play games at home such as snap or even have your child look for items around your home that have these sounds in them and ask them to write it down.

You can also log onto Spelling shed to practice spellings with the new sound / rule that they are learning.


Precursive Letter Formation

This is a technique your child will be learning at school to help them move onto joined up writing as they get older. Each letter stars with a 'flick from the left'. Look at the Powerpoint below if you need any help with this.

Handwriting Powerpoint

Times Tables

By the end of year 2, children should know their 2s, 5s, 10s and 3s. You could print these to use at home with your child. Likewise, remember to log into your child's TT Rockstars account and practice there!
