Year One/Two

Welcome to our Year One and Year Two at Great Gaddesden School.


big welcome back to all of the children after the Christmas holidays, we hope you all had a restful time with your families. 


Our Class Teacher is Miss Carty and our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Crosby. 


In Years 1 and 2, we follow the 'Letters and Sounds' programme in our teaching of phonics. Our reading books are grouped and colour coded by level of challenge. We have a range of texts taken from Oxford Reading Tree, Phonic Bugs, Rapid Readers and others. We also practise sight reading our high frequency words to help with our fluency and confidence in reading. 
Please have your reading book and PE kit in school each day with you. Children may also leave a pair of wellington boots at school for outdoor learning, if possible. 
We love practising our phonics with Geraldine the Giraffe! You can watch her videos on YouTube and you can see one below.
We also love practising our times tables by dancing and singing along with the 'BBC Super Movers' videos - you can find the links to the tables we are learning below!
