How can you help your child?


You can help your child by:


  • Listening to your child read their reading book every day.
  • Helping your child with their homework.
  • Signing up to Class Dojo to track their progress in school and to check for any messages from your child's class teacher.
  • Ensuring that your child has their PE kit in school on the appropriate day.
  • Making sure your child is in school on time every day.


PE Days


PE will take place once a week. The days for these are as follows:

1A - Tuesday

1B - Monday

1C - Monday


Please ensure that children have the correct kit in school, long hair is tied back and any jewellery is removed.

Take a look at what we have been doing in PE:



Year One will visit the Library on a Wednesday afternoon. These sessions will run on a three weekly rotation to ensure all classes have the opportunity to visit the library. During these sessions children will be able to chose a book to bring home. Library books must be brought back to school in time for their next visit. Keep an eye on your class story for any updates and reminders! 





This will be set on a Monday and will be due in on the Wednesday of the following week. Please see the documents below, which give you an overview for the homework each half term.


Reading in Year 1

Children should read every day for 10 minutes and reading should be signed by an adult daily in your child's home reading log.
