Some important Year 1 notices

Indoor PE is on Tuesday afternoons

Outdoor PE is on Wednesday afternoons

Please ensure all PE kits are brought on a Monday in preparation for the week and ensure all clothing is labelled clearly. 


Library books will be changed every Tuesday.

Please ensure your child brings their library book to school on a Tuesday if they would like to change it. Library books will not be levelled but will be for your child's enjoyment to read with/supported/by you.


Reading books

Your child will be receiving a levelled book shortly. This can be changed whenever your child wishes but we recommend that at this age your child reads a book at least 3 times before it is changed. This is because repetition and familiarity will help build your child's confidence and fluency. You will also receive a Reading Log in which you can note down which books have been read and any additional comments. Please note that although we will read your comments we do not have the time to individually reply to/acknowledge in writing every comment made. 


Show and Tell

Show and Tell will have a set slot every week of a Monday afternoon. We have split the class in to 3 groups so that each week just one group will get the chance to speak- this is to ensure everyone gets a chance to share with the class. Your child will be told when it is their turn the week before- please check in with them. They are allowed to bring in items from home but please make sure they are not too valuable or precious. Electronic devices are not permitted please. 



Spellings will be sent home on a Friday and will be tested in class the following Friday. Please practise these as much as time permits for you and your family. We recommend practising daily in short, sharp bursts.

Our Year 1 Class Expectations

Our Year 1 Class Expectations 1

Welcome to Year 1

We hope you have all had a wonderful holiday and are looking forward to the start of the school year. I know we are and we especially can't wait to get to know everyone. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask... 


Some notices to start are:

  • The children will be entering in to the classroom on their own on a morning and will need to be collected from the same door at the end of the day. Please bear with us as we get to know your faces on collection...
  • PE will be on a Tuesday and Wednesday but please can all PE kits be brought in on a Monday and if needed be taken home on a Friday.
  • Once the children are up and running with their home reading books this will be accompanied by a Reading Diary which we would like parents to log the title of the book read along with any additional comments. This book will be changed weekly.


We will update this page as the week goes on with more information on how the children have settled in and how Year 1 will work. 


Mrs Smith and Miss Shedlow
