Welcome to the Kentmere Academy, Year 1/2 page. As our children move from the Kentmere Academy Early Years in to Year 1 and 2, they will begin to experience an increase in academic expectations and support.
The class teachers in Year 1/2 are:

Kentmere Academy follows the Cornerstone Education Curriculum. To learn more about Cornerstone Education visit the website here.
Hop on board a big, red bus and head for England’s capital. Yes, that’s right, we’re on our way to London!
This half term, we’ll take tea with the Queen and visit Buckingham Palace online. Using maps and research, we’ll locate
Buckingham Palace, understand compass directions, plan routes around London and learn about the countries of the
United Kingdom. Our research will take us back in time to the Great Fire of London and to famous London landmarks,
as well as giving us an understanding of what it’s like to live in a big city.
We are also planning a trip to a local fire station as well as going to see Dippy the Dinosaur when he comes to Rochdale in February!

It is very important that you and your child work together at home to further their learning. You can help by:
- Reading every night
- Learning spellings from the key word list
- Complete our learning log every fortnight
- Learn number facts (doubles and halves of numbers, pairs of numbers to make 10, 20)
Select a further task from the optional homework menu sent home at the beginning of every half term and can also be downloaded on the link below.
Children will need their reading books and bags in school everyday.
Indoor and outdoor PE kits which are clearly labelled with your child’s name are also required everyday.
Reading Books will go home everyday.
Learning Logs: Children are given learning challenges every two weeks on a Friday. Learning Logs should be returned to school by the Thursday before the new challenge is due. The challenges focus on different areas of the curriculum that your child is learning about in that half term. There are three possible activities and children can choose one of these to complete. They vary in difficulty and are graded bronze, silver and gold.
On a Friday, Spellings will be given out and will be expected to be completed for the test on the following Friday. Additional English and maths work will be sent home to practise what they have been doing in class; this will be sent home on alternate weeks to the Learning Log.
