Key messages

Year One is such an important year for your child. During the first term we follow an early years' approach where your child will have access to continuous provision at all times whilst working in small groups on more formal tasks. This changes throughout the year as we prepare them for more structured learning and becoming independent workers in preparation for Year Two.  With this is mind, we ask you to support us in the following

  • Ensuring that children read at least four times weekly
  • Ensuring that children complete their weekly homework tasks including their Read, Write Inc books which detail which sounds we have been working on that week.
  • Ensuring that children come to school with the items they need for that day such as reading bookmarks, homework, water bottles, any letters that need to be returned, a school bag and wellies when we are planning to work on the school field.
  • Regularly checking your emails as we no longer send paper letters home
