 Phonics and literacy



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




A 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.


Term 1 and 2 outdoor PE as follows:


1S - Indoor Wednesday, Outdoor Thursday

1T - Indoor Friday, Outdoor Monday

1/2A - Indoor Friday, Outdoor Monday

2K - Indoor Monday, Outdoor Wednesday

2D - Indoor Wednesday, Outdoor Thursday


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 History we will be looking at what makes someone important or significant.  We will look at significant people such as: Columbus, Neil Armstrong, Mary Seacole and Florence Nightingale.  We will then compare two individuals and discuss similarities and differences.


In Design and Technology we will look at different fabrics and think about ways to join them together without sewing. We will then look at different types of puppets and how they work.  We will end by making our own puppets and joining them using the techniques we tested in week 1.  


In Learning for Life we are thinking about money and how to look after it carefully.  we will look at good and bad days and how we feel when we have a bad day.  We will investigate how to care for things and some very basic first aid.    


In PE we are learning how to correctly move in space, varying speeds and changing directions.  We will use this when playing invasion games where finding space is so important. For indoor PE we are learning about moods in dance and how we can express how we are feeling through movement and expression when dancing.


In Science we are looking at materials and their properties.  We will see how to classify materials in different ways and think how materials are used for different purposes.


In Computing we are looking at spreadsheets and showing how they can be used to total things with a correct formula. We will refresh the children with online safety and become maze explorers.


In RE we will continue to look at Sikhism, discuss the main beliefs of a Sikh and how this helps them to live their lives.
