Children's Information


When you come back to school, you will be in the final year of Key Stage 1!


To prepare for the exciting curriculum that will be covered in Year 2, we have given you some suggestions for activities that could be done with your family over the summer holidays... Enjoy having fun with your learning together!




Numbers and shapes are all around us everywhere we go. Read 2 and 3 digit numbers on doors, car number plates and anywhere else you see them!


At the shops, add prices together and count the change. Practise counting in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s.


Use the computer to find some games on the internet.




There are many games to play that will help you to practise reading and spelling; try 'I-Spy' and 'Hangman' for a start.


Take opportunities to read when you are out and about; you'll find lots of letters and words on road and street signs, in shops and all the places you visit.


Why not visit the library, borrow a book and share it with someone in your family—a real treat!




There are always lots of opportunities to practise your writing. Write a holiday postcard, letter, a recount or diary entry of any outings or visits you have been on in the holidays!


Remember to use a capital letters and full stops.


You could also use conjunctions to join your ideas.




We begin our year with the topic 'Journey' - What journeys can we go on real or imaginary? What might you take? Why?

We hope you have a wonderful Summer holiday and we look forward to seeing you return to School on:
