Reading books are to be brought in to school daily and are changed when your child is moving on to anther book to match their RWI group. Children will bring home a 'Book to share' and this is to share with an adult at home. This book is not decodable at your child's Phonic stage therefore, they are NOT expected to decode it or read it fluently. Children will also bring home a library book weekly. Please send your child's library book in on a Thursday. Your child's reading diary is for parents/carers to sign and return to school. Teachers will read with your child in school and will make notes regarding your child's reading progress. Teachers will no longer be commenting in the reading diary.
Homework Books are to be handed in on Fridays. Children will receive new homework every term, linked to the Topic they are learning in school. Homework is set weekly on Seesaw too.
For every book your child reads at home, they will move up the Reading Rockets chart in school. For every five books read, your child will receive a certificate. Please support your child with this.
Water Bottles and Snacks
Children can bring their own water bottles into school to help keep them hydrated throughout the day. Children will be offered fruit during play time.
If you have any questions or concerns about your child in school, please ask to speak to your child's class teacher by phoning the school office The member of staff will ring you back at a convenient time or please email using the class email as above.
Welcome to Year One.....we are Miss Richards (1P) and Mrs Marriott (1G). We are very excited to be part of the Year One learning Journey with your child!
The work outlines on our class pages will be updated each half term and this will inform you about what your child will be learning in school. A reading book will be sent home regularly for you to support and enjoy the reading experience with your child and we, as class teachers, will hear your child read often during Guided Reading and Read Write Inc sessions within the school day.
Read Write Inc Phonics/Reading/Get Writing, Maths and Guided Reading takes place daily. Year One will be taught Science once a week and Topic twice a week. They are taught handwriting daily.
