Year 1 & Year 2 Key Information


Your child will be given a library book of their choice for you to share at home and a book banded RWI Book bag book to read at home. Your child will need to be fluent with this book before it is changed.

Your child’s book will be changed  every Monday and Thursday if they are fluent when reading the book. We expect you to read with your child at least 4 times a week to support their reading development especially fluency in their reading.

Please make sure your child has their book bag in school everyday!!


Homework is given out on a Friday and is to be returned by the following Thursday. 


PE will be on Monday and Friday.

Year 1 children need to bring their PE kit to school in a bag and they will get changed at school to develop their independence. 

The PE kit is as follows: 

  • Lovers’ Lane PE hoodie or school jumper
  • Plain navy jogging trousers or shorts 
  • Plain white t-shirt
  • Trainers

Learning and well-being

The main focus for the children is to ensure they are happy and settled in school especially with the uncertainty children have had over the past few years in school. We will be providing them with many opportunities to share and discuss their experiences, worries and support with gaps in learning.
