Year 1 Information
Welcome to Year 1
This is Year 1's information page where you can find all relevant information regarding your child's class and daily routines.
Support Staff: Mrs Ingram, Mrs Stone and Mrs Bassey
PE: 1DV - Tuesday, 1B and 1M - Wednesday
To maximise PE lesson time, children must be sent to school wearing their full P.E. kit on their P.E. day. This should be their house-coloured t-shirt, school jumper and unbranded black or navy bottoms. All jewellery must be removed prior to the lesson and long hair should be tied back for health and safety reasons. Please make sure clothing is appropriate to match the weather as often our PE lessons will be outdoors.
Snacks: We warmly encourage your child to bring a healthy snack to enjoy during their breaktime and free fruit is provided for them. All children are strongly advised to come to school with a water bottle (containing water only) which can be refilled throughout the school day.
Homework: Work to do at home is set every Friday and due by the following Wednesday. Spelling check happens every Friday.
Books to take home: The children will change their books weekly. On a Monday, each child chooses a sharing book. Your child will not be able to read this on their own. This book is for you both to read and enjoy together. On a Thursday, your child will bring home a reading practice book. This will be at the correct phonic stage for your child. They should be able to read this fluently and independently.
Information: Children should bring in their water bottles every day. In Year 1, there is a phonics screening check in June to ensure all children are able to decode using the phonemes they learn in their Phonics lessons.
