Welcome to Year 1 - Peacocks!
Hello and Welcome to Year 1’s page!
Our PE lessons will take place on Monday morning and Wednesday afternoon. Please ensure that PE kit is in school on these days and earrings are removed. It is the responsibility of your child to look after their kit so please make sure it is all named just in case they misplace something.
All children need to bring a water bottle into school so they can have a drink during the day. These should have a sports top.
Homework is given out every Thursday and it should be returned the following Tuesday. This will consist of weekly spellings and either Maths or English. After Christmas they will also get some phonics homework to help them prepare for the compulsory phonics test in June. Please make sure you read with your child regularly; we recommend every day please!
You need to make sure you use the reading diary to record the home reading as this is used to award ‘Reading Stars.’ Books will be changed every Tuesday and Friday. Please read the book more than once so that your child can recognise more whole words rather than sounding them out each time. This will really improve their fluency. Also make sure that they can talk about the book and answer questions.
