Welcome to Year 1

 

Reading Books

Reading books at home is a part of your child's homework and is valuable to their progression.  Please can reading books be brought to school everyday.  We will endeavor to change your child's books once a week but will take every opportunity to hear them read.  We would really appreciate it if you could support you child by listening to them read at home a few times a week.  Please jot a few notes in your child's reading record book telling us how much they have read, whether they enjoyed the story and if they struggled to sound out or remember tricky words.  To support your child you could ask them a few questions (such as what will happen next, why an event happened or how a character feels) throughout the book to encourage comprehension.

P.E.

Class 1 have P.E. on Fridays and Class 2 on Tuesdays with their class teacher.  They will usually need indoor kit for this which consists of dark shorts, red t-shirt and black pumps.  Your childs P.E. kit should be in school for the whole half term.

Please ensure that your child's kit is clearly named and that earrings are removed on P.E. days.

Homework

Year 1 will not receive homework every week but phonic activities or spellings may be sent home on a Friday.
