Year 1/2

Welcome to the Year 1 and Year 2 Page! 

Notices  – Week of 15th October

Thank you to everyone who came to support parents evening.  It is vital that there is good communication between us all for your child to progress to their highest potential at school.

Thursday is dress up day!  The children can come to school dressed up in their spooky attire ready for a disco after school – although I do wonder how their outfits will fare by the end of the day!

Friday is an Inset Day so no school for the children.

Please ensure that your child has a fully named PE kit on their peg ALL week please.

Homework 

Some of you requested homework for your children at Parent’s Evening.  The magical thing that you can do at home is to read as much as possible.  That could be their reading book or a book of their choice or a magazine or something from Newsround.  Spend time understanding the pictures, character’s feelings and events in the story.

After half term we will add some topic based homework to the website.

Our Topic

This term our topic across the cluster of local Asset schools is ‘Superheroes’.

Handwriting

At Bungay Primary we will be using cursive handwriting when the children are ready to start it.  Through handwriting lessons and early morning work they will practise the cursive form.  There is no rush for them to join their letters but you may like to practise at home too.  Use large resources like chalks, paints and whiteboard pens to learn the shape and flow of the letters.  Once they can write the cursive letters correctly then start to think of writing them smaller.

Phonics 

The following sound mats will demonstrate the sounds that the children should know.  They should know all of Phase 2 – 5 by the end of Year 1.

Spelling

The children should be able to spell common exception words for their year group and are worth practising.  Spelling tests will happen in Phonics lessons and will test how the children apply a particular sound or spelling rule.

Daily Mile 

At Bungay Primary we want to strive to have fit and healthy children who are energised for learning.  As part of our timetable we spend 15 minutes a day outside, running, jogging or walking and breathing in the fresh air.  It is great fun and over 5000 schools in the UK take part.
