Year 1/2 – Rosen, Inkpen, and Ahlberg

Welcome to Year 1/2 


Meet our Team  

Rosen Class:  Mrs. Madden Mrs. Mansfield Mrs. Bingham

Inkpen Class: Miss Benham  Mrs. Muzzio 

Ahlberg Class: Mrs. Harris Mrs. Allaway


The children thoroughly enjoyed their visit to Maidenhead synagogue last week.  The synagogue staff were very welcoming and taught us loads about how Jewish people worship.  The children were complimented on their prior knowledge as well as their respectful behaviour.  Well done to Key Stage 1.  Many thanks to those parents and carers who made a contribution towards the coach cost.  Without your support the trips could not happen and the children would miss out on valuable opportunities.


The children have been given a Mathletics log on code in their homework books.  Mathletics homework has now been set.


As your children have settled into school so well, we ask that you do your best to let them come into the classroom independently and organise their own equipment and clothing in the morning. This is an important part of their learning and development.


Any junk modelling boxes would be greatly appreciated for our Moon Zoom topic this term.  


Thank you for your support.  


 P.E kit should be brought in every Monday and left in school until Friday.  Thank you for your support.


Rosen P.E: Monday and Wednesday

Inkpen P.E: Wednesday and Thursday

Ahlberg P.E. Tuesday and Wednesday

Homework Books:

Homework books need to come in every Wednesday and will be handed out again on Friday.  Please complete at least one task per week.  It may be recorded or stuck in the homework book.  Please tick off the tasks your child has completed on the grid so the teacher can tally up the house points.  Thank you.


Reading: Reading books will be changed regularly. Please bring your reading book and reading record into school every day and place it in the box provided.


Spelling: A spelling grid will be put in your child's homework diary for the entire term.  The website will be updated with weekly spelling grid regularly so you can access the spellings if your homework diary is not to hand.


Homework Grid:  A homework grid will be set half- termly.  Children will be able to select from a       variety of tasks to support their learning. Please encourage your child to select at least one task per week. Children who choose to do more tasks will gain house points for their efforts.

Pencil cases and rucksacks in Key Stage 1: Children do not need pencil cases in Key Stage 1.  We would encourage children to bring in a school book bag rather than a large rucksack due to the lack of space in some of the classrooms.
