Welcome to Year 1! We are really impressed with how the children have started the school year. They all look smart, are ready to learn and have been remembering their planners.
A few important messages…
PE – In Year 1 PE will be on a Thursday. Please make sure your child has appropriate kit in school for their lesson. If your child has earrings, they will need to be able to remove them themselves or use tape to cover them.
Homework – In Year 1 children will receive phonics homework on a Thursday. It will need to be back in school on the following Tuesday.
Reading – It is important that you read with your child every night at home. Let us know how they get on by writing in their planner. If you feel they are ready for a more challenging book, let us know and we will find them one! If they are struggling and you would like advice or ideas about what you could do to help your child at home, either write a note in their planner or speak to their teacher after school.
