Spring TERM IN Years 1 & 2

In English we are looking at instructional writing, diary writing and science (non fiction texts) writing. We will also be celebrating book week by doing lots of activities based around a book.

Our topics are animals and humans. We will be visiting Marwell Zoo.

We will also be continuing our work on grammar, spelling and doing some whole class reading using high quality texts. All children will continue to practise joined up handwriting. In phonics children will be learning letter sounds and blending for reading and writing using the Read, Write, Inc programme.

Maths this term we will consist of number, problem solving, statistic and fractions.


We love it when children continue to learn at home! You can use Purple Mash or MyMaths to find maths, science, phonics and spellings activities and games. Please ensure that you keep on working with your children on reading, discussing books that your child has read, learn and apply spellings that are given and completing the homework. 

Part of your child’s homework is to read at home. Ideally, children in Foundation and Key Stage One should read at least 4-5 times a week preferably daily and reading should be recorded in your child’s reading record books. Here you can make notes of any observations you have. Even if your child is a fluent reader, it is important that they still practise reading aloud using expression and intonation and can talk to you in detail about their books.

Every week there will be one piece of homework in homework  folders or set on Purple mash as well as a spelling piece of homework which will be in a book. This will be sent out on Thursdays and must be returned by the following Tuesday. Children get a second chance to return on a Wednesday, if it is still not in by this time they then attend homework club on Wednesday lunch time.
