PE this term is on a Monday and Thursday mornings.
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
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.
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
- House points

Reading - Autumn Term
Guided reading will take place daily as a whole class. Children will also read with an adult at least once a week. This can be either be reading on a one to one basis or in a small group. Children are welcome to change their school reading books daily or when required.
Our class mascot is Scout! Scout is enjoying spending time with the children in the class this term. He is super impressed with how fantastic the children all are
Alternate Wednesday afternoons we will be taking part in a forset learning session. These sessions will be lead by Mrs. Ginetta. The children will be exploring our school's forest area. They will learn about how to care for the environment, seasonal changes, and creatures and their habitats. They will work on skills such as co-operation and co-ordination alongside gross and fine motor skills. The children will also engage in den building activities, bushcraft, and tree climbing.
All children will need wellies or old trainers and a waterproof coat. We go out come rain or shine!
Please ensure your child brings in daily:
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.
