Useful Information

A few useful things to know about Year 1!


Reading Books 

Reading books will be changed every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Please try to hear your child read as much as possible; just 5 minutes a day can make such a difference. Please make sure you sign your child's diary so we know it can be changed and if you wish to leave a comment that would be great too!  (When your child has read 40 books they can choose a prize from my prize drawer).

Reading Bags

Please ensure your child brings their bag and reading book every day.

Library Books/Maths Games

Your child will be able to bring a Library book home too.  Our Library day is Tuesday so please ensure books are returned so they can select a new one.  If your child wishes to keep the book for longer that is fine; they will be able to get a new one when it's returned. 

Maths games will be sent home in the Spring Term instead of Library Books, your child will still get to change these on a Tuesday.  Then in the Summer Term we'll send home both.


PE days are Tuesdays and Wednesdays so PE kits need to be in school.  If the children who wear earrings could take them out on these days that would be very helpful or just cover them with plasters.

Spellings/Maths Facts

These will be sent home on Fridays in your child's large green book.  They need to learn these at home and then they will be tested on Fridays.  Please ensure your child's green book comes back to school on a Friday so their new spellings/ maths facts can be stuck in.
