Maths

A big focus within Year 1/2 this year is number bond knowledge. By the end of year 1 the children should know the number pairs that equal 10 by heart and by the end of year 2 the children should know the number pairs that equal 20 by heart.

Below are links to two documents showing what children should know and be able to do in maths by the end of year 1 and 2:

Please make sure that the children have the correct kit for their lesson:

Outdoor PE: Shorts, t-shirt and trainers (in warm weather).  Jogging bottoms, t-shirt, jumper and trainers (in cold weather).

During all PE lessons, children need to have long hair tied back and earrings removed.  It is school policy not to tape over earrings, they must be removed by the children themselves, adults cannot help them with this.
