Dear Parents/Carers,


Welcome back to Spring 2! The school topic is “Ready, Steady, Cook!” (see separate sheet).


Classroom Staff

Miss Pixton is the Classroom Teacher, Mrs Mason is the Teaching Assistant and Mrs Taylor is the PPA cover for one afternoon a week.



For Spring 2, Pictor class are focussing on stories and persuasive writing.



For Spring 2, Pictor class are learning about properties of shape (including lines of symmetry), fractions and measurement. In order to help your child in the lead up to SATs, please ensure your child is secure with their two, ten and five times tables.



Children are read with in at least once a week 1:1 and once in a small reading group. Please leave a comment in the child’s reading diary so Mrs Mason knows how much of the books has been read. Mrs Mason will check each child’s reading diary frequently to see if they require new books to bring home.



Your child will continue to move through the Letters and Sounds phonics scheme. This year, there will be a big focus on teaching spelling rules.



The children will be doing PE on Mondays (for Yoga) and Wednesdays. Please ensure your child has their PE kit (white t-shirt, shorts, pumps) in school and that all items are clearly labelled.



In the lead up to SATs, I will be sending home booklets for your child to complete. The booklets will help your child understand the wording of questions they could possibly get asked and build up stamina in order to complete the booklets. I would ask that the children attempt the booklets as an independent task (although, apart from the reading paper, the questions can be read to them to help understanding. As well as this, I do ask that you read regularly with your child. Even if they have read the book, it is good practice to re-read the book so your child becomes more confident and fluent.



I have attached our class timetable for Spring 2 to this letter. 


General Reminders…

  • Any letters or reply slips, which need to be returned, can be put in your child’s book bag. The children are encouraged to check them each morning and give things in before the register.
  • The children will have access to water using a cup a class set of cups; however, they can bring in their own named water bottle if they wish to.
  • In Key Stage 1 the children receive free fruit as a mid-morning snack and will be encouraged to try everything.
  • If your child wishes to have milk please visit the website and register. Cool Milk will then add your child to the list for the following week.


If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate ask me in person or on Dojo.


Kind regards,


Miss S. Pixton
