P.E. Kit

PE For both Year 1 classes outdoor games/PE will be held on Fridays. This is also the day Year 1 will have their dance sessions. Indoor PE/gymnastics classes will be held on Thursdays or Fridays.

Please ensure that your child has the appropriate clothes for PE sessions, e.g. jogging trousers/ shorts, t-shirt, plimsolls/trainers for outdoor games. Indoor games lessons are done barefoot so no tights if possible please

Show and tell

In Year 1 Show and Tell is held weekly on a Friday, and your child will have one Show and Tell slot per half term. We will be sending details of these out via email. Please do not send in any high-value or precious items into school, in case of any accidents

Parent readers

If you would like to volunteer to read the class story at the end of the day (3pm onwards) please feel free to drop us a line and we can arrange a convenient day

How You can Help
If you have any knowledge, skill, or artefacts related to what we are learning in school, then please do get in touch with your child’s teacher. We love having our Parents and Carers come in and help us all to learn!

Statutory Assessments
Children in Year 1 undergo the Phonics Screening Check in the Summer Term. Children are asked to read 20 real words and 20 ‘pseudo-words’. The children are well prepared through normal English lessons and they are rarely, if ever, aware that the check is taking place.
