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.

Reading Bags

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

Library Books

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


PE days are Tuesdays and Wednesdays so PE kits need to be worn on Tuesdays and Wednesdays in the summer term.  If the children who wear earrings could take them out on these days, that would be very helpful!  Thank you.

Homework and Spellings/Maths Facts 

Homework is sent home on Fridays in your child's green homework learning log book.

Their blue spellings/ maths facts books are sent home on Fridays too.  They will need to learn these at home and then they will be tested the following Friday.  Please ensure your child's blue spelling book comes back into school every Friday so their new spellings/ maths facts can be stuck in.  Green homework learning logs and homework need to be returned on Thursdays.
