Years 1 and 2


Welcome back class 1/2M to a new year at Waterloo Primary! We are looking forward to an exciting year ahead, getting to know one another and build some lasting memories that will stay with your children throughout their learning journey with us and beyond.

Children in 1/2M take part in their PE sessions on Mondays, therefore please ensure your child has their PE kit with them each week. Or this can be left on their peg for the half term. The PE kit consists of:

Indoor: plain white T-shirt, black shorts, black pumps.

Outdoor: as above and navy coloured jumper/hoodie and navy tracksuit bottoms, trainers or plimsolls.

Please note, for health and safety reasons, earrings are not to be worn on PE days.

Reading books and any library books are to be returned on a Thursday and will be sent back out on Fridays. Please make sure you are signing your child’s reading diary so we can see your child has been reading at home. Your child will be awarded stickers for each day of reading, which go towards a special reading achievement award.


Year 1: Videos will be set on ClassDojo for your child to practise their phonics knowledge from home.

Year 2: Homework will be set online on Century. This will be set on a Friday and will need to be completed by the following Thursday. Your child will also be given a Timetables Rockstars log in to continue their learning.

Children in 1/2M have also been given their log in for PurpleMash, so learning can continue from home, as computing is a session the children often enjoy.

Please be advised to write your child’s name in their uniform and on any property that enters the school building.

Please look out for updates on our ClassDojo pages and our school's Facebook and Twitter.
