Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!


Welcome back, we hope you all had a lovely sunny half term! We are on the final stretch, this year has flown by! Our topic for the next few weeks up until transition is 'Go Green'. This is a very current topic, with lots in the news at the moment so we wanted to lead from this and develop the children's awareness of the environment and the dangers our planet faces. 


We aim to hear children read once a week. This may not always be individually and might not be with the class teacher every week. We include lots of reading into our daily lessons so rest assured we do see the progress your children are making. Please help us to support your child by reading with them every night and recording this in their Home School message book.


Children will have opportunities to change their reading books throughout the week, therefore they need to bring them in their book bags every day. It is the children's responsibility to place their Home School message books in the box each morning. 


Children are not expected to read the entire book in one night. We would prefer them to enjoy reading 3 to 4 pages with you and to answer questions about what they have been reading. 


Please don't forget Bug Club, there are lots of lovely books and it counts as a read if you have supported them and written in their Home School message book! You can find your child's login details inside the front cover.

Please ensure your child's PE bag is in school and remember that pierced earrings MUST be removed for PE. Sadly your child will not be able to take part in PE lessons if they are wearing earrings. This is for their own safety. Please also remember that PE is statutory and therefore it is the responsibility of parents to ensure that their children are able to take part.


Whilst it is still nice at the moment we may be doing some of our PE outside. Please ensure your child has a pair of plimsolls or trainers that fit. It may be an idea to send in a pair of jogging bottoms too in case it is chilly.
