Year 1 and 2 Information

Welcome to Year 1 & Year 2
Welcome to Year 1 and 2.
We have three classes; Badgers, Rabbits and Hedgehogs. 
 
Standards are broadly in line with national figures at Key Stage 1, with phonics being well above the national average. In June 2022 95% of year 1 passed the Year 1 phonics screening check, compared to the national average of 75%. This was our greatest phonics achievement ever! We use the Little Wandle phonics programme for more information please go to our phonics page in the curriculum section.
 
 
Newsletters
 
 
Each term we add our latest newsletter. These are really important documents and are well worth printing out and putting somewhere safe so that you can refer back to them. 
Year 2 Residential
 
Each year Y2 go on a residential to Lea Green. This is a fantastic experience for the children and one they will never forget. Please see below for more information, which was shared at our Lea Green information evening.
 
Reading
 
We want all our children to have a love of reading. not only do we use Little Wandle phonics, but we also use their reading programme too, which means that children read a decodable book three times to an adult in school before they then take that books home. By the time the book goes home children should be able to read at lest 95% of the words on sight, reading with prosody and a good level of comprehension. 
 
To encourage children to read we have a 'Read-a-Rainbow' challenge in place, with children moving through the rainbow coloured book marks for every 25 times they read at home. 
 
For more information on Reading in Scargill please go to the Reading section on the curriculum tab.
 
Below you can find the recommended reads for the two year groups.
Curriculum
 
The curriculum runs on a 2 year cycle meaning all of the year 1 and 2 objectives are covered over the two years that children are in the y1/2 department.
