Reading: We ask children to read at home every day. This means that they should read each book at least twice to an adult at home. Ask your child questions about what has happened in the text and the meanings of words. When they have read, this needs to be initialed by an adult. We change books when needed on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday and ask that all reading diaries are brought to school every day.
Homework: Year 1 homework is set and sent home on a Friday. This needs to be completed and handed in by the following Wednesday. The homework consists of spellings as handwriting practice, made up of the Year 1 common exception words from the national curriculum, year 1 spelling patterns and some words that are frequently misspelled. Also there is a topic, English or Maths task.
P.E: Year 1 have P.E sessions on a Tuesday and Thursday afternoon. These are in the hall which can be dance or gymnastics and outside learning many different sports and skills. We ask that P.E kits are left in school for the term as there are times when we may have an additional P.E session or a change to the
timetabling of the P.E session.
Contacting your child’s teacher: If you feel you need to talk to your child’s teacher please come to the classroom door at the end of the day. If the timing is not convenient please do not hesititate to contact the office to make an appointment.
