Welcome to Class 1!
We are very excited to welcome our the new children into FS2 and also to see some familiar faces in Year 1. This year there will be lots of fun, learning and laughter and the Class 1 team cannot wait to get started!
Please read the following information and don't hesitate to speak to a member of staff if there is anything that you are unsure of.
BOOK BAGS… Please ensure that your child brings their book bag to school EVERY DAY. Your child will be provided with a reading book, reading diary and homework book which should be sent in their book bag every day so that they can be updated by staff.
Letters will also be sent home in your child’s book bag so please check it on a regular basis.
HOMEWORK… Homework will be sent out on a Wednesday and needs to be returned to school on a Monday.
READING...Every child MUST read at home at least 3 times a week and they will be regularly rewarded for doing so - if it is recorded in their reading diary. The name of the book, date and a brief comment or signature is all that needs to be recorded.
As the year progresses, children will be sent home with 'tricky words' in an envelope to learn. As these are learnt new ones will be added.
When children are ready, they will also have spellings to learn, which will be tested on a weekly basis on a Friday morning.
Please come and speak to me if you require support with your child’s home learning.
PE KIT... Our normal PE day is Wednesday but we will do PE at other times throughout the week so it is best if children bring their P.E. kits into school on Monday and leave them in school until Friday. NO EARRINGS.
WATER BOTTLES... Your child needs a water bottle in school every day. Please ensure that bottles only contain water.
TOPIC... Our current topic is called Do you want to be friends? In this topic we will find out more about friendship, being kind and working together.
Please see the attached parent information leaflet.
