A big welcome to our Year 1 children!
We are very excited for the year ahead and looking forward to getting to know more about our
Year 1 children and their families. Our focus at the start of the year is to ensure children feel settled in their new environment and we’ve been so pleased with a really positive start.
It’s been lovely to see how quickly everyone has started to pick up our new rules and routines. We have been working hard to share resources, take turns and be a good friend to everyone in our class bubbles.
Below are a few helpful reminders about our Year 1 routines:
Reading books will be changed on a Monday and Thursday. Please ensure that books and reading journals are returned on these days. Books will only be changed if parents have signed to say that the books have been read.
Our PE day is on Fridays. Please ensure that children arrive at school in their full PE kit. The weather is now turning colder, so make sure your child is suitable dressed.
Bear words (sight vocabulary)
Some children may have coloured lists of words in their reading journals. Please practise these as often as possible and once your child is secure in reading their list, we will add a new one in their journal.
Spellings will be set as homework every Friday via Google Classroom. The spellings will be set according to each child’s phonics phase. Look, Say, Cover, Write check sheets will be uploaded each week, please use these to practise. There is no need to return this sheet into school as we are trying to minimise contact between home and school. Spelling tests will take place every Friday morning.
Homework will be set every Friday via Google Classroom. The work should be ‘turned in’ the following Friday. There is no need to bring any hard copies into school.
