Curriculum overview


Athletics is on Monday afternoon and Rounders is on Tuesday morning with Jody. Please  send your child in with the correct PE kit. Please come to school dressed in the appropriate PE kit on these days.


Homework is set each week on a Friday and is due in the following Wednesday. This is set on the homework tab on the website.
It should be completed neatly in your homework book in blue/black pen or in a pencil.


  • All children are expected to read 5 times per week minimum.
  • Reading books and reading record books should be in school EVERYDAY in your child's book bag. The number of reads recorded in the record book will be counted on a Monday.
  • An adult signature and an optional comment should be recorded after each read. Remember that phonics practise counts as a read.
  • 5 reads signed by an adult each time will earn you a raffle ticket each week! The raffle tickets go into a box and at the end of term one lucky winner will be drawn out who will then go on the bookshop visit to buy a book for their class.
  • If you have any questions or concerns about your child's reading or would like some help with how best to support their reading, please speak to the class teacher in the first instance.


Below are the statutory spelling lists for Year 1/2. It is very important that you practise these often!

Spelling list Year 1/2

Term 1

We have had a lovely start to the term and enjoyed discovering and observing the different materials in our environment in Science

Term 2

We have really enjoyed our History and RE trips this term!

We loved discovering more about Christian symbolism and having quiet reflection in such a beautiful place of worship.

Our workshop and visit to the Titanic exhibition at SeaCity museum in Southampton was fantastic!

Term 3

 We have been really enjoying reading the new story of The Lonely Beast. We will be writing a wanted poster inspired by this story so that we can help find the perfect friend for Beast!

Term 4

Year 2 got muddy at Riverbourne farm on their Geography trip this term. We really enjoyed meeting all the animals! It was a great opportunity to build on our knowledge and discover more about where our food comes from.

Term 5

Welcome back! We have been measuring and comparing capacity in Year 2 this week in Maths!


We are also enjoying our new class reader Planet Full of Plastic and love learning facts about how long different materials take to decompose!

Term 6

We have been really enjoying reading our new class reader: Einstein the Penguin. It is about a cheeky, lasagna loving penguin who runs away from the zoo!

A perfect story to be reading as Year 2 will be seeing the penguins at Marwell Zoo very soon! I wonder if we will have any little penguins come to visit us like Einstein does in the story? Let's see!
