Mrs Routledge and Mrs Cook

Welcome to a new and exciting year of learning for Year 1 and Year 2 children at Alverton.

This year is "Year of Books" and each class will be represented by two reading ambassadors, who will have the task of inspiring their peers with a love of reading.

We begin the year with Paddington Bear and through this topic we will be developing all aspects of the curriculum.


In Numeracy  - we will continue to develop number concepts. We will begin with investigating number systems, looking for patterns in numbers and solving calculation problems. The children are encouraged to approach numeracy in an open minded way and to use practical equipment to support their thinking.




In Literacy - we will be learning to write instructions and developing competence in recording facts and fiction in writing. We will be developing punctuation and trying to consistently use capital letters and full stops. In addition to punctuation we will see an increase in the use of correct grammar and will be teaching this throughout the primary years.


Our topic is "Where in the world ... " and as the title suggests the children will be learning about cities and countries around the world. 

 For your information:



 Homework will be sent out on a Wednesday to be returned the following Monday.

Reading Packets

 Reading packets must be brought to school every day. Books will be changed when appropriate.


 Please note that PE sessions will be Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday


Please provide your child with a named PE kit and name all your child's school clothing. PE kit should be brought into school every Monday and left at school until Friday, so it is available as needed.
