Reading

Reading is very important. Your child will have regular reading sessions in class, but they would also benefit greatly from further reading at home too. Each child will receive one levelled book and a class library book (of their choice) each week.  Please make sure that book bags are brought into school each day. Year 1 will change their books every week on a Friday.  Please make sure that you read with your child every day and sign their reading diary.

Reading at home with your child

 

PE Kit

Please make sure that your child brings in a full PE kit with them on PE days. Each item in the PE kit needs to be named. Year 1 will have PE on Mondays and Tuesdays.

For PE, each child should wear dark coloured shorts/leggings/tracksuit bottoms and their PE T-shirt in their house colour. Children need to wear trainers or pumps for outdoor PE.

Please remember …

  • to tell the office or your child’s teacher if someone other than yourself will be collecting your child at the end of the day
  • to write your child’s name in their coat, uniform and PE kit
  • to check the school’s website for the weekly newsletter (paper copies are available in the school office)
  • To download SchoolPing- to keep up to date with the latest news 

If you have any concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to speak to any member of the Year 1 team at the end of the school day.

 

Thank you for all your support
