Archived Mrs Brotchie

Welcome to Year 1/2!


There are 26 enthusiastic pupils in Year 1/2, of which 13 are Year 1 pupils and 13 are Year 2 pupils. The staff working in Year 1/2 are Mrs Brotchie, Miss Devlin, Mrs Hornsby and Mrs Curtis. Mrs Knight teaches this class every Wednesday afternoon.

Please make sure your child has their reading book in school every day. Children should read their reading books every day at home and we encourage you to sign their reading record each time they do read. In school, they will be reading with an adult at least 3 times each week.

Please continue to use Mathletics at home too.

For Year 2 pupils, weekly spellings will be sent home on a Monday to learn for a spelling test that Friday. Please help your child to persevere with these!

PE days are Monday and Thursday. Please ensure that your child has their full PE kit in school. They will bring it home at the end of each half term.

Our elected class MP is Lincoln Trott and he will be our parliamentary representative for the current academic year. He will attend meetings with our school Prime Minister and the other Members of School Parliament to discuss any issues raised in our Class Parliament meetings.
