Year 1 has P.E. lessons on Thursdays which will be taught by our professional sports coaches. P.E. kit consists of black shorts, white T-Shirt and black pumps.
P.E kits need to be in school at all times. They can be taken home at the end of each half term to be washed.
Please remember that children are not allowed to wear any earrings for health and safety reasons. If your child has recently had earrings put in, please cover earrings with a plaster for P.E. before bringing your child to school in the morning.
Homework will be sent home on Friday and will consist of weekly spellings. You will be able to check your child's score from the test as it will be stuck in the home-spelling book. If you see errors can you spend some time looking at those words again.
There will occasionally be a piece of topic work or a home project to complete. If there are any issues regarding homework please feel free to talk to a member of the staff team.
Your child's topic map will be displayed at the front of their homework book so you can talk about their learning at home.
Every child has been provided with a plastic wallet to keep their homework in.
Please return completed homework in the plastic wallet by Wednesday.
Book bags should be brought to school and taken home each day. Your child will be organised into a 'Reading day' where they will read to either Mrs Stokes or Miss Howard.
During this session we will assess your child's word-reading skills and ask them some questions to check their understanding. This book will then be sent home and a question to answer at home will be written in their home-reading diary. Can you ensure your child reads and re-reads this book and writes a response to the question set.
There will also be occasional phonics homework so you can help your child prepare for the end of Year 1 'Phonics Screening Check'. We will monitor their progress each half term and if extra work is needed we will let you know. Thank-you for your support.
