Year 1 to Year 2 Transition Information

Welcome to KS1 2019 Letter

Common exception words Y1 & Y2

Year 1 have now met their new teachers for Year 2 and spent a little bit of time in their new classrooms. It would be helpful if the children could bring a strong carrier bag in so that they can take home their Year 1 books at the end of the week.

Belmonts Got Talent

We have asked the children to practise their brief act for the talent show which we are  holding with Year 2 on Monday 22nd July. Both classes will get a chance to rehearse in class on Wednesday afternoon, so please make sure the children have rehearsed and practised before then. 

Summer Y1 Party

We will be having a Y1 party on Monday 22nd July. We will be in touch with the class reps regarding ice-cream or lollies. 

Time to return books

Please start returning all reading books. We will not be sending any more books home after Tuesday 16th July.

Daily (15-20 mins)

Reading Records must be brought into school every Monday to be checked. It may be that the Reading Record is checked more than once during the week.  Children are able to change their reading book whenever they need to. 

Children may also borrow books from the Infant Library. We encourage the children to share their library book with an adult at home as well.

Key words/ Spelling 

Please can you regularly revisit the Year 1 Common Exception Words with your child to ensure that they can read and spell them correctly. It would also be useful to begin looking at the Year 2 Common Exception Word list in advance of the children beginning Year 2. Also it would be helpful if you could make sure that your children practice how to spell their surnames as well as using capital and lowercase letters correctly in their first name.

Common exception words Y1 & Y2

Number Facts and Times Tables

It would be useful if the children could be given opportunities at home to practice the following key maths skills: number formation, spelling number words up to 20, number recognition up to 100, counting forwards and backwards, recognising one more or one less of a given number, adding and subtracting single and two digit numbers, and doubles up to 20.
