 Phonics and literacy


For more information on the teaching of phonics and literacy at Byron click here.



Our main priority this year is Reading.  It is important that ALL children read at least 3 times each week as this is crucial to their development across the whole curriculum.  Please listen to your child read and ask them a few simple questions on what they have read to check their understanding.  If you need any support with questionning please ask your child's teacher.

We are also working on number bonds to 10, 20 and 100. 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 and some will know pairs to 100.

Physical Education

Each class has two sessions of PE a week – one inside and one outside.

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


Indoor PE: shorts, t-shirt and bare feet in the hall.


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.


Library sessions - Each week we will have access to the school library. Children may borrow books to read at home. 


Our Work ~

In Geography we are studying the waether.  We will be thinking about what we mean by weather and how it changes across the seasons.  We will also look at how the weather can be different across the UK, even on the same day.


In Art we are looking at a specific artist - Antony Gormley.  We will be creating a piece of work copying his style of art, specifically sculpture. We will end the unit by producing a sculpture out of clay. 


In Learning for Life we are thinking about being our best.  We will be looking at our bodies and keeping healthy.


In Music we are combining sounds to compose our own tunes using a range of musical instruments. 


In PE we are learning to move in our dance sessions and the skills required to play bat and ball games in our outdoor games activities.  


In Science we are looking at animals and their habitats.  We will have a visit from Zoolab and a chance to learn about some animals and their habitats in a hands on experience.
