PE Days

Year 1 have P.E on a Tuesday and Wednesday.

If your child has pierced ears please make sure that earrings are taken out on a Tuesday and Wednesday or plasters are put on to cover them. School are unable to provide plasters for this purpose. If a child cannot remove earrings or is not wearing plasters they will be unable to participate. Long hair should be tied back at all times.

Year 1 Top tips

Children should bring water in a named bottle, this should not be juice unless there is a medical reason for needing this.

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 shoelaces.

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


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.

A maths activity will be set on a Monday and should be completed and returned to school the following Monday.


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


In the centre of your reading diary are the Year 1 Common Exception Words. By the end of Year 1 children should be able to read and write many of these ready for Year 2.
