Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!


P.E is on Thursdays - please make sure your child has their P.E kit on ready for the morning. P.E. kits include a t-shirt, a pair of shorts or jogging bottoms and a pair of trainers or plimsolls. Please ensure that children do not have any earrings in or jewellery on.

Please make sure you read with your child (and write it in their reading diaries) at least 3 times a week as this is an important part of their reading development. We will count the number of reads and change their reading books on a Tuesday. Please check the Collins Big Cat library for your child’s eBook each week as we will be choosing a star reader! They will also receive their mini story every Friday.

Please ensure that you bring your child’s blue reading folder and reading books into school every day.

Spelling tests are on Monday and the teaching of new spellings will be on Tuesdays.

New spellings are put onto Spelling Shed weekly. Children can also recap previously learnt words and high frequency words.

Superhero Maths tests will be on Thursdays.

Phonics Screening Check:

There will be a Phonics screening workshop coming up, so please look out for this date. Use the QR code provided at parents evening to support your child with practising for the test.
