Homework will be given out on a Friday and it will consist of a Maths and English activity and spellings from the Year 1 common exception word list, as well as tricky words. Homework does not need to be handed back into school unless it is asked to be brought back. The activities set are to be carried out through fun and creative ways where possible, so that it can be tailored to the individual needs of your child.
Children read to an adult at least once a week in school. This maybe individually or in a guided reading session. We encourage children to read little and often, we suggest 10 minutes per night in Year 1. We do ask that you do not read more than 1 book each night, a few pages to a whole book is recommended, with lots of questioning and talking about the book to aid comprehension. Children can have their reading books changed at any point during the week, provided that they remember to put their blue reading folder in the box.
Please can PE kits be brought into school at the start of every half term and kept in school, we will send kits home at the end of each half term for it to be washed. The PE kit should be clearly named and consist of: pumps, trainers, shorts, white t-shirt, long trousers/leggings.
