Year 1

Welcome to year one and the summer term.

We hope you all had a fabulous Easter holiday. It is wonderful to see our delightful year one children back again. 

There are just a few pieces of information that we would like to share with you.

Your child will continue to use their learning journal from last year. If they become full we will issue a new one. As you have had these before I am sure you will be familiar with the layout and content. There are lots of resources that are incredibly helpful to use with your child for any support at home you may wish to provide. The expectation is that they are brought to school every day and taken home every day. If you could sign in the reading record part when you hear your child read on a daily basis that would be really helpful. 

Reading at home every day is one of the most important things you can do to help your child. One of my favourite quotes really sums up the importance of reading:

The more that you read

The more things that you know

The more that you learn

The more places you'll go                   Dr Suess


There is a section for you to use if you would like to communicate something with us. We just ask that you let your child know that they need to pass it on to a member of the year one team as they first enter the classroom and also to have it open on the page of communication.

Reading books will be changed weekly (every Tuesday) and the expectation is that they are in school every day along with their learning journal, so that members of the year one tram can read with your child.

P.E will be on a Wednesday and Friday and children are to come in their P.E kit.

Children will have the opportunity to visit the library in school take home a library book home that they choose. This will be chosen and taken home on a Friday and returned to school the following Friday to be changed if finished.

As a school, for all classes from year one upwards home learning is accessed through Google Classroom, the appropriate information of how to access this has been emailed to all families. Home learning will be posted every Friday in the year one Google Classroom and any additional class information will be posted in the classroom too. 

If you could please ensure that all clothing items are labelled that would be amazing. The year one team look forward to getting to know all our lovely families over your child’s exciting journey in year one. Thank you for your continued support.

The year one team
