Class 1/2K

Welcome to 1/2K  "The Marvellous Monkeys"!


In Years 1 and 2 we have lots of fun learning new skills and trying our best! On our page you will find lots of information about our class, what we are getting up to in school and useful information to support learning at home.


Meet the team


Miss Becky Kirkland (am)

Miss Clare Billington (pm)

Teaching Assistant  Mrs C. Woodfine




Picture 1 Miss Kirkland will teach Math's and Literacy.

This half term our Topic is...


...Into the Woods!


Lots of fun to be had...we already met the Big Bad Wolf!


in Literacy we will be looking at the very familiar story of Little Red Riding Hood. We will be creating our very own versions of the story using traditional story language and devising our very own playscript versions of the tale! All the better to impress you with my dear!


In Maths we are learning about measuring. We will be investigating length, weight and capacity. Please help us to find things that have labels showing these units of measurement within the home! :-)

We will also be having lots of fun starting to learn our times tables.  Watch this space for more information on Times Tables Challenges soon!


Class Information


Look at our lovely displays!




Wednesday and Thursday - PE Days.  Please send suitable PE kit (including warm outdoor wear).  This should stay in school throughout the week. 

Friday - Maths Skills Check Day. Your child will complete a Maths Skills Check in school. They will then bring this home to practise the areas they need more work on. These will be highlighted in green.

Friday - New spellings are handed out on a Friday following the weekly Spelling Test.   Please practise these at home with your child too.



Please read every night at home. Reading is so important and we want everyone to read as much as they can so they can learn as much as they can!  Children who read every day can earn Reading Certificates and even win a book if they win a Gold Certificate! Watch out for more information about further Reading Competitions throughout the year. 


In Year 1 and 2, we ask the children to read their reading book 3 times before they change it in school - once for decoding, once for fluency and once for understanding. The children can also access Bug Club Online at home where there are online books and reading activities.  This website is a great way to support your child's decoding and comprehension skills! Usernames and Passwords should be in Planners. 



Don't forget to keep logging into Mathletics and earn as many points as possible! Practise makes you perfect!



Practise our Little Red Riding Hood Text Map at home!
