Important information:

  • Reading books - Children can have their reading book changed on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. On these days, providing their reading record has been signed to say they have finished, the children will be able to put their book in a designated box where it will be changed and returned to the child later in the day. Please remind your children to do this if you know they need a new book.
  • PE - For Mrs Waters' class PE is on Wednesdays and Fridays and for Miss Sutton's class PE will be on Mondays and Tuesdays. Kit should be kept in school for the whole half term but please ensure that hair is tied back and earrings are taken out on your child's designated PE days. 
  • Homework - One piece of homework will be sent out each week on a Friday and this should be returned by the following Friday. In addition to this your child will bring home a reading book and wordboxes to practice. Children will also have visited the library so they will have a library book.


Phonics is key in helping children learn how to read and write. At the end of Year 1 children must take part in

a national phonics screening check to test whether they meet the standard for Year 1 phonics. Please support your children at home by helping them to practise their wordboxes and identify sounds within words when they are reading with you. If you have any questions about phonics please refer to the link below or ask Mrs Waters who is our school phonics lead.
