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 two prizes from my prize drawer).

Reading Bags

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

Library Books/Maths Games

This term we’ll be sending home library books. Library day will be Tuesdays so please ensure your child returns their book on this day then they can choose a new one.


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 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.
