Things to remember

Reading Books

We have now introduced a folder for your child’s reading record and book this will have your child’s name on and this is simply to stop books getting lost or damaged. These can be changed daily, but can only be changed once an adult has signed to say that their child has read and has finished their reading book.

Children are to remember to put any books that need to be changed into the box

So this is ready for the class teaching assistant to change them during morning lessons.

If they are not put into the box in the morning they will then have to be changed the following day.

Spelling Books

These will be sent home on Friday’s and these are to be learnt and practised for the test on the following Friday. The spellings are set out into four columns in order to help the children practise over several days at their pace and sentences are to be completed with the new words they have learnt (if applicable).

Spelling books will need to be handed back in every Thursday, so new words can be added for the following week.

(Hand in Thursday – back out Friday)

Your child’s spelling test scores will be written in their spelling books. 


This will also be sent out every Friday and is to be returned completed by the following Thursday.

(Hand in Thursday – back out Friday)

Homework Project

There will also be a homework project for your child to complete at home each half term.

This will be given out on Monday 14th May and returned on Monday 18th June.


In Year 1 we are improving our presentation in books by learning to use cursive handwriting. An alphabet strip has been sent home with all the letter formations on for you to practise with your child, if you wish to do so.

Handwriting letter formation sheet


PE days are Monday and Thursday. Children are to please have a white t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps clearly named and always in school. (PLEASE ENSURE YOUR CHILD’S BLACK PUMPS FIT THEM AND ARE IN SCHOOL)


If you have any problems regarding any of the above, please do not hesitate to speak to me directly or make an appointment through the school office and I look forward to meeting you all at Parent’s Evening.
