Useful information for Parents
Please bring your Book Bags to school every day!
Homework: Expected homework is daily reading either with or to your child. 5 minutes daily is ideal however if your child is too tired or is reluctant to read to you then please take the opportunity to read a book to them, this is also really valuable.
Spellings: This half term I will begin to send home some weekly spellings with some of the children who are ready to widen their spelling strategies. At this stage this is optional, to be done as and when your child is keen to try and you have the time to support them. Practising little and often in different fun ways makes a big difference so please try and fit in a few minutes at least twice a week. These spellings will support their written work there will NOT be a regular weekly spelling test.
Suggested home learning challenges for each week are on the half term overview. These are encouraged but optional.
Reading: The single, most important way you can help your child in Year One is to read with them every day. Keep it short and enjoyable about 5 mins each day. Read a few pages and talk about what you have read then sign your child’s reading folder to show you have read together. Children who have read are rewarded with good reading stickers for their chart.
PE: The children will need outdoor PE kit on Thursday and indoor PE kit on Tuesday. Earrings MUST NOT be worn for PE.
