We have an exciting year ahead that will be filled with opportunities to explore experience and learn.  Moving to Year One is a very big step and although the children are still with their friends, they now have to learn about their new classroom, teachers and the different daily routines. Here’s a quick overview of how things have changed now your child is in Year One:


In our classroom we will be following the ‘Link’ points reward system where children are rewarded with points for their good behavior and work. We will also be using our ‘Seven Shrimps to Success’ reward system where children have to earn seven shrimps to receive a reward!


In Year One children have to complete reading and spelling homework once a week.

Reading - Children should try to read each day for at least ten minutes. Please sign the Twiggler twice a week. We will ask children to hand their books, signed Twigglers and reading homework in on Wednesdays. Books will then be changed and new homework given out on Fridays.


Spellings - Spellings will be given out every Wednesday and must be practised each day until the books are handed in the following Monday. Children can earn a link for practising their spellings and completing their spelling sentences.


Our PE days are Thursday and Friday. As this is subject to change, it is recommended that children keep their PE kits in school all week.


RWI (Read Write Inc.) is the scheme your child will follow to learn their phonics (sounds) to help them learn to read. We will also be running a VIP Phonics Club for parents to be given the opportunity to experience how we teach phonics at school.


School Uniform

Please could you ensure that all of your child’s clothing is clearly labelledwith their name on their jumpers, trousers and t-shirts.
