Useful Information

Please note some of the information below may not be relevant at the moment as school is now in the 'new normal'.

A few useful things to know about Year 1!


Reading Books (These are now just changed on Mondays and need to be returned on Fridays please so they can be quarantined). 

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 two prizes from my prize drawer).

Reading Bags (No bags please in school at the moment)!

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

Library Books (These are sent home on a Friday and need to be returned on Monday please).

PE (Please make sure your child comes dressed ready in their outdoor PE clothes on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. (No Gymnastics anymore). 

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 send in some plasters for your child to use on those days.

Spellings/Maths Facts (These and any other homework tasks are on Kidblog on Fridays).

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