Welcome to Years 1&2 at Great Gaddesden School
I hope that you are all well.
Please find the new home learning activities below. Remember to use the class email firstname.lastname@example.org to send in any work that you have completed - I would love to see all of your home learning!
Our Class Teacher is Miss Carty.
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!
