Weekly Tasks

Spellings

Spellings go out on a Wednesday, and are tested on a Tuesday afternoon. The children will bring their spelling books home with them on the Wednesday to give you the opportunity to go over the ones they may have missed at home. Please make sure that spelling books come back to school before the next test the following Tuesday. 

PE

PE is on a Thursday afternoon. Please ensure PE kits are in school. If your child can not do PE for any reason, please let a member of staff know.  Please ensure that all items are clearly labelled with your child’s name.

Reading Books

Reading books are changed Monday morning and Friday morning. We appreciate your efforts to read with your children, it really does make a difference. Thank you for the support.

Maple the Bear

Maple goes home on a Friday with one lucky member of the class. We hope you have lots of fun with him! Please return Maple, with his book, the following Wednesday so we can hear all about your adventures.

 

Reading and phonics

Reading and phonics are an important part of the National Curriculum.  The presentation below is from a recent information evening held on Reading and Phonics for parents and carers.  Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any further questions or suggestions. 

In Year One, children are grouped for Phonics; their spellings are specifically chosen for their group. The first four spellings will reflect the spelling pattern that they are currently learning or revising and the fifth spelling will be a common exception word. Initially, some children may continue working on becoming secure at reading and spelling their Phase 2 and 3 common exception words before being given spellings to bring home.
