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


Welcome to Spring Term.  We hope you had a joyful Christmas break.  We look forward to another busy term beginning with a Great Fire of Workshop on Thursday, 10 January.  The children should learn loads and it will be a fantastic launch to our new topic Bright Lights Big City. New spelling and homework grids were put into your child's homework books at the end of last term.  Please let your class teacher know if your child has not received the new grids. There is also an extra bit of home learning linked to our value of the term TRUST.  Please check to make sure it is in your child's homework book. The grids will be added to the website at the end of this week.


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 and jars would be greatly appreciated for our Bright Lights Big City 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

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.
