In Year 1, Foxes do PE on a Tuesday and Squirrels do PE on a Friday. Please ensure all kit is labelled clearly and is in school for the first week of a term. Kit will be sent home during the holidays for it to be cleaned.
This half term we are doing Commando Joes, so all Year 1 children will need their PE kit on a Thursday as well.
Homework books will be sent out each Friday. Children should complete two of the tasks from the pick and mix sheet (1 Maths and 1 other) and return by the following Wednesday to be checked by the teacher.
Children will receive spellings on a Friday in their spelling book. These should be taken home and practised over the week. Children will need to return their books to school on a Friday for their test and new spellings.
Books are changed weekly in Year 1 and children should aim to read at least 4 nights at home with an adult or older sibling. Adults are encouraged to sign the reading record book to show that they have done reading at home.
Phonics is taught daily in Year 1 and children will be assessed on their phonic ability in June during the 'Phonics Screening Week'. Please see below for further information:
