Year 1+2

Welcome to Year 1 and 2!

Your teacher is Miss Martin, supported by the wonderful teaching assistants Mrs Taplin, Mrs Stubbs,Mrs Shaw and Modern Apprentice Miss Roker.

In our class you will also meet several trainee teachers and teaching assistants at different times during the year.

We feel we are a very unique and special school, with a strong emphasis on family and community involvement.

We are very fortunate to have a wonderful building and fantastic outdoor spaces. We make full use of these to facilitate our learning, making it fun! We strive to provide a wealth of experiences that enable all of our pupils to succeed. Within our class it is important to us that everyone feels valued and achieves their best.


Following the Rose report phonics teaching has high priority in KS1 following on to KS2 for those children who need it. Daily phonics sessions take place on a 6 phase basis tailored and differentiated to individual children’s ability. Games and activities take place which enable children to hear, recognise read and write each of the 44 phonemes in the English language, leading to the segmenting and blending of these sounds enabling them to read and write words. At Low Furness we use the Phonics Bug scheme to deliver the National Scheme of Letters and Sounds.
