Year 1 and 2 Information Packs
Here at Calmore Infant School we aim to give you as much information about your child’s learning as we can so you know how your child will be taught. In the box on the right you will find different information sheets about all aspects of learning. There is information on Maths with a Glossary of mathematical terms and a Number Track for your child to use at home, how you can support your child at home with Read, Write Inc phonics and about the progression in Phonics and also a Spelling Overview for Year 1 and 2.
You will also find information about the teaching staff and daily routines for Year 1 and 2.
Numbers Count is part of the national Every Child Counts Programme. It aims to enable children in Year 1 who would benefit from extra support with mathematics, to make accelerated progress so they can work confidently alongside their peers.

At Calmore Infant School, our aim is for every one of our children to become independent, successful and lifelong readers and consequently writers. Above all, we want our children to enjoy reading so we have called our reading intervention programme R.I.S.E. (Read Independently, Succeed and Enjoy).
All of our children receive first quality teaching for all areas of the curriculum including reading, writing and phonics. This first quality teaching within the classroom is often enough for many children to learn to read and write successfully however other children need extra support.
At Calmore Infant School, we provide varying degrees of support for any reader who is struggling, needs a little extra support or a boost to help maintain their progress in reading.
