PE and Welly Wednesday sessions

PE is taught by Miss Eade-Jones on a Friday afternoon.  Please remember to send your child with their PE kit every Friday - this is a pair of black shorts, a white t-shirt and a pair of pumps.

The Welly Wednesday session is taught by Mrs Towse every other Wednesday afternoon (we will update the webpage with a timetable soon, for now please keep an eye out for posters in the windows!)  Children should come to school on these days in clothes that are ok to get a bit muddy!  (Long trousers must be worn and wellies sent to school if the weather has been or is wet!)
Reading at home has a huge impact on your child's progress and we ask that your child reads to an adult at least 3 times a week, every night is even better! Please sign your child's reading record and write any appropriate comments. This could be how well they read or parts they found hard.  

We will read 1:1 with the children every week in class, during this reading session the book may be changed if they show fluency and understanding of what they have read.  Alongside the 1:1 sessions we will do a group reading session at least once per week; the records of these sessions will be kept in class.  

Children also read in our daily 20 minute phonics sessions.

Spellings in Year 1 will start in Autumn 2.
Children will bring home spellings on a Thursday. These will be linked to what they have been learning in their daily phonics sessions and may include some high frequency tricky words (which that cannot be spelt using phonics). It is important that they try to read and spell the words on the list.
