Welcome to Year 1!
Welcome! I can’t believe how busy we have been in our first week back to Year 1! I have been so impressed and you have made me very proud already.
Below I have outlined a few things which will help you along the way this year:
* PE lessons usually take place on Tuesday and Thursday. Please remember that your PE kit must be in school at all times in case these days change or we have another exciting activities planned. The indoor kit is as follows: White top and black shorts. Outdoor kit: Black tracksuit, white top and trainers.
* Practise your spellings at home each day. The spellings follow the patterns we are learning in class and really will enable your children to develop an embedded understanding of the spelling patterns. We follow a 'look, cover, write, check' method, which should help you at home. Spelling tests take place on a Thursday.
* Read at home every night and discuss what you have read in great detail (such as making predictions about what may happen next, discussing the characters and linking what has been read to own experiences).
* Come to school every day ready to learn! The doors open at 8.35am and registration begins at 8.45am.
I am so impressed with what you can do already and how clever, kind and determined you all are. Let’s learn and grow together this year and make sure we are shining like the superstars we are!
