Welcome to our Year 1 page. We have a really exciting year ahead of us this year with lots to look forward to.
Please bring your child's book bag to school everyday. We use book bags to send home letters, homework and reading books. Please ensure your child’s reading book and Home-School book is brought to school every day.
The children are given new homework on a Friday and will then be collected in the following Wednesday. Spellings are given out and tested every Friday. Please hear your child read each night and make note in their Home-School book.
Children are expected to read to an adult every night. When you hear your child read, please ensure you make a note in your child’s reading record. We would encourage parents to ask their child questions about what they read to help them develop their comprehension skills.
Year 1 have PE outside on a Friday and Thursday (weather depending) - Please can you ensure that the children have suitable footwear for these outdoor sessions. It is important that all children have their kit in school on these days. Earrings and watches cannot be worn for PE so if your child is not able to remove their earrings independently it would be helpful if they do not wear them on these days. Please ensure your child’s P.E. kit is clearly labelled with your child’s name.
At the end of the day:
- Parents wait and collect their children outside the classrooms.
- All children need to be collected by an adult. Please let the office know if collection arrangements change or if you are running late.
If you have any concerns, please come in and see us at the end of the day, leave a message with the office or send us an email to arrange a time to speak with us.
