Our Year 1 and 2 classes work very closely together. Children will be registered and taught many lessons with their own class but we also mix the classes to teach Phonics and Maths and some English in year groups. We are finding our children are thriving with this approach. Children in Year 1 and 2 may be taught and supported by all all of our Year 1/2 staff at some point during the school year. Staff work closely together to ensure that the same curriculum coverage and learning opportunities are given to all Year 1/2 classes.

In the first instance, we teach your child how to read and write using phonics. Phonics is a method of teaching children to read by linking sounds (phonemes) and the symbols that represent them (graphemes, or letter groups). To find out more about how we teach phonics and how you can help your child please visit our English page.
Below are a selection of our ‘Must Read’ books for children in Year 5 and 6. These are high quality texts that we feel will enrich our children’s reading experiences as well as help to take them on a varied reading journey. We recommend these as reading choices at home but we will also use some of these books as part of our learning in school and some we will simply enjoy together as a class story. Re-reading and discussing favourite books is such a valuable part of the reading experience and something that can also be enjoyed as a family. Happy reading!
