In Year 1, you will need your homework book on a Friday (this will be given out at the start of the new term). We will do a spelling test each Friday, so it is really important that these come in weekly. P.E. is on a Wednesday (1B) and Thursday (1S) so children can come to school in their P.E. kits on these days.
On a daily basis, children should bring in a drink of water, lunch if needed and a bag to take home reading diaries etc. Reading books and reading diaries should be in school daily. I t will be an expectation that children read at home at least three times a week and learn their spellings. We have reading rocket rewards for all children who do read this often!
Every day in school, children will have phonics, English, Maths and whole class reading or group reading. In an afternoon, our knowledge engaged curriculum will be blocked around History, Geography, Science, Art and Design and Technology. We will look at social skills (PSCHE) weekly and will focus on Computing and R.E. through the curriculum too.
There will be lot of rewards for positive behaviours in Y1 such dojos, certificates and the weekly Golden Child award.
