Below is a list of useful information and routines in Year 1:
PE Kit: PE kit needs to be in school every day and will be sent home every half term. Our class will be doing PE on a Monday afternoon and Friday morning. Please ensure your child has tracksuit bottoms in their PE kit ready for the cold weather.
Reading Books: Books will be changed when the book has finished. It is important that planners are signed to say when a book has been read at home so we can change the book and note down that they have read at home.
Homework: We do not set homework but there is an expectation across the school that children will read at home at least 4 times a week. Over the year we may send home activities to support learning in the classroom.
Spellings: These will be given out every Friday and children will be tested the following Friday. The spellings will be based on their phonic lessons.
Planners: Children should hand in their planner and folder each morning. If you have a message, please make a note in the planner or alternatively please email me on the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org

Please find attached below a copy of Year 1's Curriculum Map to show all topics covered throughout the year. Check back soon for more information relating to upcoming topics and ideas of what you can discuss with your child at home prior to their learning in school.
Don't forget to keep logging on to Literacy Planet & Mathletics for lots of English and Maths activities linked to the Year 1 curriculum. Let us know if you don't have access to your child's login and we can get you another copy.
