Welcome to Year One!
Each child is given three school reading books to take home each week. We change books routinely on Monday. Each Wednesday we will send home a class author book and an exercise book for them to write a sentence or draw a picture. We ask that you read these books with your child at home to support their learning in school. Please remember to write and date their reading record book we would like the children to read at least three times per week. Please ensure that your child’s book bag, reading book and reading record are sent to school every day.
As well as reading at home each day, the Year 1 children are given homework and spellings every Friday to be returned on the following Friday. If the task is a written activity, we ask the children to write in pencil and add the date. We take great pride in our work and the children love being rewarded for lovely presentation. Please always write in pencil.
Please keep in touch…
If you would like a weekly interactive phonics lesson e-mailed home, please speak to the teacher. We know that children learn everywhere, all of the time. We would love to hear about what the children have been learning at home. If your child has achieved something outside of school we would love to hear about your child’s achievement. Children are encouraged to bring in photographs, medals, or anything of interest so that they can tell their classmates all about it!
After school clubs
Year one after school clubs are currently, Multi-sports club on Monday after school. This club finishes promptly at 4:15pm.
P.E. is on a Tuesday afternoon and the children will require appropriate footwear in their PE bag at all times. The school will provide a PE kit for your child. If your child has their ears pierced they will need to be removed by your child, teachers cannot support your child with this. Can we ask for all uniform, including coats, shoes and outer clothing to be clearly named. This not only helps the children with their independence, but it is their responsibility to look after their own possessions.
