Year 1 & 2


Dear Year 1 & 2,

I hope you have enjoyed your first few weeks of settling into school.  You should feel that you are learning a lot about tens and ones, partitioning and ‘Goldilocks and the 3 Bears’!

Year 1, you have no homework and spellings yet.

Year 2, your English homework this week is very simple!  All you have to do is practise your Rising Star spelling list words.  You will notice that your spelling list in your green spelling book is labelled ‘Autumn 1’.  These are words that you must practise for an assessment at the end of this half term. Next half term, you will receive another set of words labelled Autumn 2, then Spring 1, Spring 2, Summer 1, then Summer 2 to end the year.  You will be assessed on these words at the end of each half term using our Rising Stars assessment scheme.

Alongside these words (from next week), you will have a weekly spelling quiz that follows an isolated sound, such as ‘oo’.  These words must be learnt in the week ready for a Friday test. These are words that I put together for you each week to support the sounds we are doing in class. These words will also form your yearly average.

Please make sure your parents and carers read this with you, as they must also know this information.  If there are any questions about spellings, please email me at
