Please ensure your child comes in to school wearing their P.E Kit on these days. Our P.E kit is a white t-shirt, black or navy-blue shorts and black pumps.  Your child may require something warmer to wear if the weather is colder. Please ensure that all items of kit are clearly labelled with your child’s name.  For health and safety reasons, children cannot wear jewellery for PE, so all children need to either be able to remove their earrings or they should be removed in the morning before school.


Reading: Books will be changed regularly in accordance with Phonics teaching.  Aim to read with your child at least 3 times every week. Please listen to your child read out loud and record this in their diary. Please discuss any vocabulary that they are not sure of and ask them questions about the story.

Numberfacts: Children in year 1 need to know their addition and subtraction facts for all numbers up to and including 20. In order to help them to learn these facts we will be using “Numbots”. This is accessed via the internet and log in details will be sent out shortly.

Spellings: Year 1 children need to be able to read and spell all of the Year 1 common exception words by the end of the year.  These are available on our website for you to practice throughout the year.
