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.


Library Books

These will be collected in and new ones sent home on a Monday; when your child returns their previous one, they will be able to choose another.


Homework and Spellings/Maths Facts 

New homework will be sent home on Fridays in your child's orange homework learning log.

The green/white spelling/ maths facts book will be sent home on Fridays too.  They will need to learn these at home and then they will be tested on the following Friday. 

Please ensure your child's green/white spelling book comes back into school every Friday so their new spellings/ maths facts can be stuck in.  Homework learning logs and homework need to be returned on Thursdays. 



Please remember in Year One all children take the Phonics Screening Test in June.  Please play games like snap and pairs at home with the common exception words/phonic sounds in the packs you received at Parent’s Evening, then your child will become a fluent and confident reader and obviously, stand a better chance of passing the test. (If you need another pack, please just ask or if you want to know the phonemes we are learning each week have a look under the useful information icon.)
