Welcome to Foxes Class
In Year 1/2 we strive to make all children feel safe, secure and confident both in their learning and in their school life.
Through our Read, Write, Inc. programme we will continue to support the children’s phonic knowledge in order to create a smooth transition.
We want our children to leave Key Stage 1 feeling independent, motivated and have high expectations. We aim to achieve this through a curriculum that includes challenge, variety and that the children find fun. We hope your child enjoys Year 1/2 as much as we will.
This page will keep all of you up to date with new events and information about homework, the curriculum and other exciting things that you might need to know about.
Thank you for supporting our learning.

Days to remember!
Our indoor P.E day is Friday
Our outdoor P.E day is Tuesday
Please ensure your child comes to school in their PE kit. This consists of navy or black shorts/tracksuit bottoms, a white or navy t-shirt and trainers for outdoor P.E.
Please ensure you label each item with your child’s name to prevent items being lost.
Our library day is on Thursday.
Please ensure you child returns their library book to school every Thursday so that children can swap it for a new book.
Handwriting is a key priority for KS1 and on our return to school we will be teaching handwriting daily. We will post handwriting updates on dojo weekly. Please support your child with the correct handwriting at home too.
Weekly spellings will also be posted on dojo. Children will be encouraged to read the words, practice spelling them and applying them to sentences. Children will be quizzed on these words at the end of the week.
Children will be given one other piece of homework fortnightly which they can complete in their homework books. Once children have returned their homework book they will be given a stamp in their planner.
Reading is very important to us at Northfield and we recommend that all children read every night. All children in KS1 are still on the read, write, inc programme and they will take part in daily reading sessions in school to support their reading. Each child is assessed half termly and these assessments determine which colour group your child is at and which learning group they will be in the following half term. They will regularly bring a reading book home and other reading resources such as words or sounds to learn. We ask that you spend at least 10 minutes each night reading with your child. When children are ready to come off the read, write, inc programme they will start to use accelerated reader and they will be part of a comprehension group daily to boost their knowledge and understanding of what they have read. We hope you will support us with your child’s reading by engaging in reading tasks at home.
As you are probably already aware we have a new behaviour system in school. Here are our seven golden rules all children must follow.
The children will earn stamps in their planner when they are seen following these rules consistently.
