Please can I ask all children's clothing to be named. We currently have 2 sets of trousers and 2 tops and a vest. All unnamed inside the classroom, in our lost property box. Please feel free to look at the end of the day if you have items missing.
Children must have a coat now the weather is changing. They will not be allowed outside without one.
Snacks - please can you provide healthy snacks for break time. Chocolate or chewing gum is not allowed in school.

Homework - 9th September 2021
I have asked the children to decorate their home learning book for their 1st task this week so they get used to the idea of having homework set again now they are in Year 1. I shall be uploading some useful phonics cards so each child can practice at home each of the key phases (Phase 2 to 5). Please can you flashcard these to your children as much as possible?
Welcome back to the new academic year! We are already coming to the end of the 1st week back and the children have been settling in well.
This term's topic is all about Amazing Animals and we have lots of fun and engaging lessons arranged this academic term.
As a reminder, we have PE on Mondays and Wednesdays. (Children can come in their PE kits on Wednesday morning as our session is 1st thing).
I have handed out reading books and reading records to each child. I shall be hearing each child ready once a week on average. Please can I ask you all to assist with as much reading as possible, at home? We ask for children to read up to 3 times per week for up to 10 minutes.
I am more than happy to assist any parents that need any tips/pointers when it comes to developing the children's reading fluency. This will also be covered during the virtual meet the teacher session on Monday 13th September 2021 after school (around 3:45pm). Do not worry if you cannot make this event as I can chat to anyone after school to address any concerns and I shall be put the power point up on the class page to view otherwise.
Homework - this is set every week. The children will receive their home learning packs on Thursdays which is then expected to be handed in the following Tuesday mornings. This will usually consist of a Maths and English task. but also around particular topics we are covering at that time.
If you would like to arrange a more formal meeting, please can you contact the office and they will liaise with me and a suitable date will be put in the diary where you can discuss any concerns you may have.
I look forward to getting to know you all throughout the year.
