Welcome to Year 1/2 


Meet our Team

Inkpen Class: Miss Benham  Mrs. Muzzio 

Ahlberg Class: Mrs. Harris Mrs. Allaway


Many thanks for the effort your children put into our Books in Box to help us celebrate World Book Day.  The boxes were amazing and the children loved looking at all the wonderful and witty details that were included.  We will be photographing them and sending them home shortly.  The children had a fantastic day out at the Wake Up Shake Up Festival.  It was a lovely way to feel healthy and fit on a rainy and wet afternoon.  Our next adventure will be the Living Rain Forest visit on Monday 1 April.  Please keep an eye out for a permission slip and details.


Please note that spelling tests are now given on Monday.  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.  Please check to make sure it is in your child's homework book. 


The children have been given a Mathletics log on code in their homework books.  Mathletics homework is set every other week.  Paper homework is set alternative weeks.  If you need support with Mathletics plese make a note in your reading records.  


Now that we are half way through the year, we ask that you enable your children to develop their independence and come into the classroom by themselves and organise their own equipment and clothing in the morning. This is an important part of their learning and development and enables them to get on quickly with their morning work.  If you need to speak to your class teacher please wait until the end of the day when all the children have been dismissed.  Notes written in reading records will be checked every morning by an adult.

Thank you for your support.  


 P.E kit should be brought in every Monday and left in school until Friday.  


Rosen P.E: Monday and Wednesday

Inkpen P.E: Wednesday and Thursday

Ahlberg P.E. Tuesday and Wednesday

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.

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.   
Welcome to our school website. We hope you find the information useful.
