Welcome to Year 1
The children have had a fantastic few days in their new classroom and they all look so smart in their new uniforms. This year is going to be exciting with so many enjoyable activities and learning experiences for your child and we cannot wait to share in them with you!
What to expect in Year 1…
PE is on a Friday afternoon and children will require their PE kit. This should include a green t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps and can be kept in school. We will send them home at the end of each half term to wash and they will need to be returned after the break.
If you would like your child to have access to water throughout the day, please provide a named water bottle for them to use. These can be taken home daily to be washed and refilled. Please note that we do not allow juice, flavoured water or fizzy drinks.
Fruit and milk will be provided each day for snack however during the morning break a healthy snack can also be purchased for 30p from the school snack shop. Children are responsible for their snack money and are asked to keep it in their trays. Alternatively, you can send your child to school with their own snack such as a cereal bar, cheese stick etc. Snacks will need to be sent in school separately to lunch boxes and put in their trays upon arrival to school.
We will be sending homework out on a Friday and we ask that this is completed and handed in the following Wednesday. Children will typically be given spellings and times tables along with either a maths, English or creative task.
National curriculum requirements at Year 1 state that children should re-read texts to increase their enjoyment and understanding. Home reading books will be changed as soon as possible after it can be seen from their reading record that your child has read their book to an adult at least twice and understands it. Please read with your child daily and sign their reading records to enable the children to achieve their next Ninja Reading band. Book bags are required in school every day.
If you have any questions or queries and would like to speak to a member of staff please do not hesitate to contact us.
