Physical Education

PE this term is on a Monday afternoon and Tuesday afternoon.  

P.E is provided by the fabulous Primary Sports Stars! 

Outdoor kit: white t-shirt, black/navy shorts or jogging bottoms, a jumper if it's chilly, and socks and trainers. Black gym pumps get damp very easily and do not support the children's ankles. 

Indoor kit: white t-shirt and dark shorts.  

Please let us know if your child is unable to take part in PE by leaving a message with staff on the gate, calling the school office, or by sending in a note. Please ensure no earrings or other jewelry are worn these days. Thank you smiley


Continuous and Enhanced Provision

Continuous provision is provided throughout Year 1 and runs alongside our main class teaching. We have zoned areas within the classroom for maths, writing, messy play, art, and construction. We also take our learning outside onto the veranda.


Class Reward System

At the beginning of the school year as a class, we agree on a ‘Class Charter’. This contains agreed behavioural expectations for ALL members of the class.

Making good choices can lead to:

  • Being on the star!
  • A smelly sticker (these smell very yummy)
  • Year 1 certificate of achievement


Home Learning -  Summer Term

'Reading Makes You Brainy!' At Eynesbury C of E Primary School we nurture a love of reading.

Please read with your child for at least 15-20 minutes daily. Every Friday we celebrate our weekly reading achievements. If the children have read at least 5 times a week with an adult at home they are moved to the super duper '5 reading star' and given a smelly sticker! Yipeeeeee yes

Please remember to write in your child's planner when you have read with them smiley

Children will now be given 5 spellings a week to practice at home. Spellings will be given out on a Friday and we will have a 'spelling quiz' the following Friday.


Reading - Summer Term

This term we will be continuing our guided group reading sessions.

Children will bring home three books - one phonic book, one leveled book and one class library book.

Children are welcome to change their school reading books daily or when required.


Class Mascot

Our class mascot is Scout! Scout is enjoying spending time with the children in the class this term smiley


Please ensure your child brings in EVERYDAY:

A named water bottle.

Reading diary and reading books.


If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to talk to us either at the beginning or end of the day. Alternatively, contact can be made via our class email:
