Class Information:

Homework:

  • To support work in class, we ask that children read every night.
  • Precision maths folders are given out on a Monday and we ask that they are returned on Friday.
  • Other homework may be issued on an ad hoc basis.

Phonics:

The school uses Letters and Sounds as our phonics scheme.

Reading:

  • In Year One we listen to the children read at least once a week, we have guided reading sessions four days a week.
  • Obviously there is a great deal more reading goes on in class.
  • Often we will try to slip additional reading in during the day. For this reason please ensure that your child’s reading book is in class every day.

PE:

  • Our PE lessons are on Tuesday and Friday, please ensure that your child has their kit in school on these days.

Classroom Routines:

  • We have daily sessions of reading, English and maths. The children will be split into groups according to our assessments of their ability.
  • We place a big emphasis on children working collaboratively within lessons.
  • Children are provided with all of the equipment that they may need for their lessons so there is no need for them to bring pencil cases in.
  • Please contact us on the yard if we are available or write a short note.
  • Please note that we do not read messages in the reading diary unless we are reading with your child.
  • Please can you discourage children from bringing games, toys or other possessions into school other than if asked. We cannot look for broken, swapped or lost possessions.
