Year 1 and Year 2
Welcome to Key Stage 1
Year 1 and 2 class teachers are: Mrs Pokora, Miss Dale, Mrs Brown and Mrs Blake and they are supported by teaching assistants Miss Barlow, Mrs Stevens, Mrs Ashley, Mrs Hyson, Mrs Dreher and Miss Robinson.
We hope you are all keeping safe and enjoying lots of different learning activities and experiences at home. We will continue to email out additional activities and projects that can be worked on together with your family. Please also see the Learning area of the website for the original letter with activities and website links on.
At Hassell Primary, we follow the White Rose Maths Scheme of Learning. White Rose Maths have daily lessons for each year group that include a short video and questions to answer to practise the skill taught. You could try this at home and talk through the questions with an adult. You can do any working out in your exercise book and write the answers to the questions in there too- we understand that not everyone will have a printer so just do any questions you can.
We have just started to follow the Ruth Miskin Read Write Inc Phonics Programme. There are daily Read Write Inc phonics lessons live on the Ruth Miskin YouTube Channel: Set 1 Sounds 9:30AM; Set 2 Sounds 10:00AM and Set 3 Sounds 10:30AM.
Most children in Year 1 and 2 will be learning the set 2 or 3 sounds. The videos are available for 24 hours after the live sessions (please be aware that this is on YouTube and so we recommend adult supervision).

On the side or back of your school child's reading book there should be a colour band; this will help to choose the level of reading book online too.
When you have picked the book and the voice starts to read it out loud, you can pause this at the bottom right of the page so the children can read it first. Press the magnifying glass to make the page bigger.
