Year 1/2 – Ahlberg and Inkpen

Welcome to Year 1/2 


Meet our Team  

Inkpen Class: Miss Benham and Mrs. Allaway

Ahlberg Class: Mrs. Harris, Mr. Cook and Mrs. Brown


It has been so wonderful catching up with our Year 2 children this week at our face to face sessions. Thank you to all that have attended, we can't believe how much you have grown! We look forward to seeing you again next week. Thank you also to the Year 1 children that have joined us in our Milne hub, it has been great having you back and you have done a fantastic job of settling in!


Home learning update! Can we kindly ask that Inkpen now upload all home learning to SeeSaw as part of your child's journal and that Ahlberg continue to send to the class email for now. Thank you so much to Inkpen parents who have signed up already, it would be fantastic to have 100% take up so please do sign up as soon as you can if you haven't already.


Ahlberg class have now been sent their link to join SeeSaw and a few children have started using it already.  Please begin to use See Saw instead of the class email to communicate with Mrs. Harris if you aren't already. Many thanks. 


Thank you to our parents for supporting with home learning, we really appreciate your support. Please do bare with us if thing aren't quite right and do call in if your are having any urgent issues with the home learning as we will be hub based. Thank you for your patience and understanding. 


Please continue to make contact with us at least once a week and any queries via the class email as this is the most efficient way for us to touch base with each family.  


If you are unable to print things at home then you can collect a copy at the school office. Due to the high volume of packs requesting to be printed we will be printing on collection to save waste, thank you for your understanding with this.


Our class emails 


We may not be able to respond to emails every day but will contact you as soon as we can. We will aim to respond to at least one email by Friday.


Thank you once again for your continued support smiley


Please continue to stay safe

Handwriting Help

Now is a great opportunity for your child to practise their handwriting at home (if you can) and a little bit each day can really help. There are three different booklets to choose from based on your child's ability. 


By the end of year 1 we expect the children to  

  • Forming lower case and capital letters in the right direction, starting and finishing in the right place. 
  • To write with a good level of consistency, meaning all letters are positioned on the line and are the same size as each other. 
  • If the children are beginning to show horizontal and diagonal strokes it will really help for when they begin to join in year 2. 


By the end of year 2 we expect the children to

  • All letters to be correctly orientated and in relation to each other.
  • Spacing between words to be consistent.
  • To use diagonal and horizontal strokes to join letters in most of their writing. 


Hope you find these useful smiley

TT Rock Stars


TT Rock Stars is an excellent way to practise and improve time table knowledge. You will find your child's login in the front of their homework book, please contact us if you need these details again. 


Once you have logged in select the 'gig' tab, the children will be asked a range of questions including division, if they don't know the answer then ask them to have a guess. The children will then be assigned the ones they need to work on. They can earn coins to customise their avatar and buy accessories.


Every few weeks the children will be invited into a battle where they can challenge other children in KS1!


Have fun smiley


To access PE activities from home please click on the 'Children' tab and then 'Help with keeping active?'. Mr Deverall has uploaded some videos and activities for you to take part in. If you have any questions for Mr Deverall please email your class teacher and they will be forwarded on.
