Welcome to Year 1 

PE Days

Our PE days are Tuesday and Friday. Please ensure all children come to school in a full PE kit (t-shirt, leggings/joggers and trainers ) on this day and all jewellery is removed. We also ask
that girls with long hair have it tied up.


This will be sent home each week on a Friday . This will be paper based and should be returned to school by the following Wednesday . Homework will be used to consolidate what we have covered
that week. This will usually be a combination of reading words/sounds, maths or an activity linked to one of our foundation subjects.


Home Readers – It is important children change their books every week to help them develop their reading skills. We have a daily reading session in class therefore your child will need to bring their reading book into school on a daily basis. This is not to replace reading at home but is an opportunity for us to develop and improve fluency and understanding.

Reading books will be changed up to twice a week. Books will only be changed if logs are signed. We recommend reading the book 3 times before changing to a new one. Your child will continue to be sent home with Read Write Inc. books until they are on Yellow books, when they will also be able to access the Oxford Reading Tree Magic Key series and Bug Club Readers.

Please encourage your child to read as much as possible over the coming year, it is vital that your child progresses at a good rate to ensure that they are able to develop key skills in reading. There is a clear link between reading and writing, if a child works hard on their reading skills and is challenged to the best of their ability this will reflect on both their writing ability and speaking.
