Welcome to Year 1/2 Black Base
Miss Hemsley and Mrs Eason WELCOME you to Year 1 and 2 in Black Base!
Welcome to our class page, where you will find all the useful information that you will need during your time in our class.
If there is any information that you can't find on our class page please get in touch with the school office by email and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
Our day starts at 8:40am when our door will be open for children to come in until 8:50am. Our day ends at 3.10pm.
Our PE days are Monday and Thursday. Children need to come to school in their PE kit which is trainers, black shorts/bottoms, a white t-shirt and black zip up jacket. Please make sure your child can remove their own earrings or remove these prior to PE on these days, Thanks.
Homework is daily reading in year one and two. Please make sure you write in your child’s reading record once you have read with them. The aim is to read a minimum of 5 times in a week. For 5 to 10 minutes per time. This will greatly help your child build fluency in reading. Our book swap day is Monday where children in year 1 and 2 will receive a new book if they have brought their old book back.
In Key Stage One we will also practice reading and spelling the Year 1 and 2 Common Exception Words. These will be sent home at the beginning of each half term in reading records and will be highlighted when the children can read and spell these. Year two's will also have weekly spelling rule lists sent home to practice throughout the year.
As well as regular reading and spelling, we hand out half termly homework projects based upon the upcoming focus in class.
During half term four, our topic is called 'Incredible India'.
