Information for parents
Homework in Year 1 is given out weekly. The aim of the children’s homework is to allow the children to practise and apply the skills they have learned at school. Each week there will be a piece of maths homework and a piece of English homework. Homework is given out each Friday and is expected back by Tuesday the following week. If you have any questions, please come and speak to Miss Dodds or Mrs Mowbray at the end of the school day.
Reading We encourage our children to read at home and develop a love for reading. We send each of our children home with two/three books a week to share with their parents/carers. Children who read for 15 minutes three times a week are entered into our prize draw and could win a reading book of their choosing. We also send home Bedtime Stories on a Friday. These books are for you to share with your child and aim to help encourage a love for reading for pleasure.
Fruit As we are a healthy school children are encouraged to eat at least 5 fruit or vegetables a day. We have a fruit on offer throughout the morning as part of our daily snack.
Milk Children who are five can buy milk for £1 a week. Please speak to the school office to find out more about ordering milk for your child. Children are encouraged to bring a water bottle into school so that they can access drinking water throughout the day.
PE Kits All children are expected to have the full PE kit in school every day. The PE kit consists of black shorts, a white t-shirt and trainers. Children will be dressing themselves before and after each PE session so please label all of your child’s clothing.
