Welcome to

Ruswarp Church of England Primary School Small School, Big Heart

Explorers Class - Y1/2

Welcome to the Explorers' class. 


We hope that those of you who have signed up to Class Dojo have enjoyed seeing your child's progress throughout the week.The children have chosen the skills that they felt were important and the values to be awarded for each. The totals will be collated until the end of the half term and a prize awarded for the highest. 


All children have been given two books: one a levelled book and the other a phonic based book, this in line with our school policy. It would be helpful if you could you read with your child regularly and record in their yellow reading record please.  Although spellings are taught in school on a daily basis, if you wish to work with your child they are now available on the website. I have also uploaded the common exception words per year group, the expectation is that your child will be able to read and spell these words by the end of the school year. On Friday's, homework will be given out (to be returned by Monday please). This will consist of a mixture of written or creative tasks which will inter-link with classroom teaching.


If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to ask, or if you feel you need a longer chat, please ask Mrs Simpson to arrange this.
