Please see below some suggestions to work on and some online links which Mrs Banbury is advising for Year 2

Maths

The children are doing well with problem solving but their end-of term tests have shown that many children still struggle to 

  • add and subtract simple numbers at pace,

i.e. 8+6=? / 4+5+6=? / 28+? =35                        

i.e. 10- ? =2/ 12-7=? / 56-? =51

  • count reliably in 2, 3 and 5 (forwards and backwards) at pace
  • halve numbers up to 20 at pace (especially 6, 7, 8, 9),
  • double numbers up to 20 at pace (especially 6, 7, 8, 9),
  • work out simple multiplications (2, 5, 10 times table) at pace.

How to apply for a mainstream nursery place in Hitchin for 2020/2021

How to apply for a mainstream nursery place in Hitchin for 2020/2021

Although our school does not have its’ own nursery, we wanted to make you aware of how to apply for a mainstream nursery place in Hitchin, in the academic year children turn 4. Parents have the choice of using their free hours of nursery entitlement between private providers or local authority nurseries. Parents need to approach individual nurseries about applying for a place.

In order to make the process easier for parents, all the schools in the Hitchin area with a nursery class, have aligned their application timeline. Although parents still need to apply to the nurseries individually, the process and time frame to do so is the same for all the settings.

The timeline below shows the application timeline for all nurseries in the Hitchin area linked to mainstream schools (Codicote, Highbury, Highover, Offley, Oughton, Purwell, St Andrews and Strathmore Schools). Please note that York Road Nursery has a separate timeline.

This timeline applies to nursery places for the settings listed above for admission in 2020/21 (children who turn 4 between 1/9/20-31/8/21).

Autumn 2019

Hitchin local authority nurseries linked to mainstream schools will make nursery admission information available on their websites.

Monday 3rd February 2020

Applications open via school’s websites for Hitchin local authority nurseries linked to mainstream schools (online applications preferred).

Friday 13th March 2020

Applications close for Hitchin local authority nurseries linked to mainstream schools.

Friday 24th April 2020

Offers made to parents (via the same method as application was made).

Friday 1st May 2020
