Games and PE
All children will have regular physical education on Monday and Tuesday mornings each week. This is an integral and essential part of our weekly teaching and learning and all children are required to participate fully. Please ensure that your child has the following kit in order to comply with school policy:
A change of clothing to include
- a t-shirt or similar
Sometimes lessons take place in the school hall, where children are required to be barefooted. Trainers will still need to be worn walking to and from the school hall.
Reading: Children in Year One are encouraged to take home their reading books every day. We ask that parents and carers take some time each evening to share a reading book with their child. Each child has a reading diary, in which parents and carers may make written comments, praising the efforts of their child in their reading progress. Additionally, each week, children are encouraged to make a loan from the school library. This book may be borrowed for a week and returned to school each Friday to be exchanged.
Spelling: We follow a structured spelling and handwriting scheme and the children will be encouraged to take home words every week to learn at home. We encourage them to use the following strategy: Look, Cover, Write, Check.
- The child will look at a single word
- They will cover it up and attempt to remember how it is spelt
- They will have a go at writing the word
- They will then check the accuracy of their attempt
