PE Days

Below are the days Year 1 participate in P.E.

  • 1SW Monday and Wednesday
  • 1AC Monday and Wednesday
  • 1MD Monday and Wednesday

Please ensure that your child has the correct P.E kit inside school. This should include:

1 black/gold P.E t-shirt
1 pair of black shorts
1 pair of school black pumps
Track suit bottoms and sweatshirts can be worn on cold days for outdoor PE.
If your child has pierced ears please make sure that earrings are taken out on these days or plasters are put on to cover them. Long hair should be tied back at all times.

Year 1 Top tips

Please label all clothes very clearly. The children are learning to be more responsible for their possessions but this takes time!
Please practise fastening buttons and getting dressed / undressed as this will help them when they’re getting ready for P.E.
Please practise zipping and unzipping coats ready for the colder weather! Don’t forget to label all winter hats, scarves and gloves!
Hand in completed homework ON TIME.
Please read every night with your child
The children are welcome to bring in a named bottle of water so they can have regular drinks throughout the day.

Homework

Homework is an essential part of your child’s learning and development as it reinforces key concepts and consolidates learning that has taken place in the classroom. It should always be fun though—little and often is always best.

Reading

We would like your child to read to someone at home every night. Reading books will be changed on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Spellings

Each Monday your child will be able to access the spellings from the website for a test the following Monday.
