Year 1

13.7.20 weekly planner page 113.7.20 weekly planner page 2


Reading books are changed weekly and children are heard to read by the Learning Support Assistant at least once a week.  Parent helpers are a valuable resource to enable us to give more opportunities for children to read on a one-to-one or small group basis. The class teacher takes guided reading sessions and focuses on inference and deduction skills.

Class Rewards

Children’s achievements in Year One are celebrated through using the recognition board and role model of the week in the school wide system. There are also star writer certificates for handwriting and presentation and reading certificates for ‘consistently good reading at home’ and moving up a reading level. Children are also chosen to receive Gold Book certificates during the celebration assembly.


Homework in Year 1 is focussed mainly on reading every night. Purple Mash is a computer based homework which will be set with a two week due, from the Spring term. Other homework maybe set with a topic focus, or a word or phonic sound to practise. 

Home School Communication

We welcome and encourage parents to come into school (by prior arrangement if possible) to discuss any concern or worries. After school is always a more preferable (and less hectic) time of day.

P.E. and P.E. Kit

For the Autumn term P.E. is timetabled for Monday outdoor P.E. and Thursday indoor P.E. but there are often changes due the weather or hall timetable so P.E. kit must remain in school all the times (AND LABELLED). Indoor kit consists of shorts, t-shirt and plimsolls (and socks if tights are worn). Outdoor kit, as indoor, but trainers and tracksuit top and bottom also. If earrings are worn then children must be able to remove them independently to be able to partake in P.E. (they can always come home in sealed envelope).

Water Bottles

Drinking water during the day is important for children to keep hydrated.  Please ensure a named water bottle comes into school each day.
