General Reminders for Year 1
PE is on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please make sure your child has a full school PE Kit in school, this is a plain white t shirt, navy shorts and pumps. Can I ask that parents please put their child's name in their pumps.
Phonics play is a fantastic resource to further your child's love for reading and spelling. The children in year 1 really enjoy phonics and it would be fantastic to continue this at home. The username and password for this site have been stapled to the inside of your child’s blue reading record book. We are working on phase 5
We have a jumper box in class where the children are free to take their jumpers off during the day. Please put your child's name in their jumper to avoid any confusion.
Reading books will be changed on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. It is important that you and your child read every night. When you have read with your child please sign their blue reading record, without this signed the children will not be able to change their book for a new one.
Learning Logs - The learning log task for this half term is to find out about the toys that parents and grandparents played with when they were children.
Keywords and Spellings - Every week your child will be individually tested on a 1:1 basis on their keywords. If your child reads all their keywords clearly and confidently then they will be given the next set. All keyword testing will be done on a Friday.
The children will be bringing home a letter and a school password for TT rock stars which is an online games site to practice times tables. You may already have a password, we are resending to encourage wider use.
Maths and Phonics homework
This half term the children will be bringing home Maths/Phonics homework on alternate weeks. This will be sent on a Friday to be returned the following Thursday. Please help your child to work through the activities which will reinforce what they have learnt in class. Please ensure your child puts their name on their homework and places it in the completed homework tray.
If you have any queries or questions please feel free to come and speak to me at the door in a morning or at home time.
Thank you for your constant support
