Phonics Screening Check

The 2022 KS1 Phonics Screening Check will take place during the week commencing 6th June 2022. More information will be available nearer the time.

 

Homework

Homework will be given out on a Monday. In Year 1 this will include a Mathematical activity that focuses on their revision of learnt skills. Additionally, the children will also have phonics and spellings to learn each week and these will be sent home each Friday. 

Reading Books

In Year 1, children are encouraged to read appropriate novels and non-fiction books regularly. This usually consists of our school banded reading scheme, however they are encouraged to read other age appropriate books as well as spending time listening to adults read. They are given time each day to read at school and we aim for them to read every evening at home. They should record this in their school diary and aim to have this signed by a parent at least three times a week. 

 

Worship and Reflection Areas

We have a dedicated worship and reflection area in class. Here the children are encouraged to spend time reflecting upon the teachings of Jesus Christ and consider how they fulfil each of our Christian values both at school and at home. 

 

Before and After School

At the beginning of the school day, before registration (8:45am – 8:55am depending on arrival time) the children will have different activities to complete. These are focused on settling the children into school and may consists of revision and practising the skills they have learnt previously.

 

School finishes at 3:30pm. In Year 1, children must be collected from the classroom door by a parent or an appropriate adult. 

 

General Reminders

Our PE days are Monday and Friday. Please ensure the children have the appropriate kit for each day. 

 

The children will also need their own water bottle in school, which they have access to all day, please make sure that they are clearly labelled.
