Welcome to Year 1/2 


Meet our Team  

Inkpen Class: Miss Benham and Mrs. Allaway

It was so lovely to see the year 2's for their last face to face, we are so proud how hard they have worked during this time and would like to personally thank you for all your support, we could not have done it without you! Thank you also for your kind words and gifts it is really appreciated. We wish them all every success for Year 3 and hope that they enjoy their transition visits next week. 


We are also incredibly proud of how Year 1 have continued their learning their school, these have been very unusual circumstances and they have continued to impress us. Miss Benham is really looking forward to spending time with you next week ready for September. 


Home learning next week will be to complete a transition booklet and a maths mystery. We will also include some optional Summer activity booklets but would like you to have a well earned break!


Thank you once again for your continued support and have a fantastic Summer smiley

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
