Physical Education

PE this term is on a Wednesday and Thursday (this term).  

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 door, calling the school office or sending in a note. Please ensure no earrings or other jewelry are worn these days. Thank you : )

 

Continuous 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 yummy)
  • Year 1 certificate of achievement
  • House points

 

Home Learning

Reading a minimum of 3 times a week for 20 minutes.

Each child will receive a homework book. A ‘pic n mix’ grid will also be provided. Homework will be shared as a class on a weekly basis.

 

Reading

Children 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.

 

Class Mascots

Our class mascots are Pip and Pop! They love going home with the children. Both Pip and Pop go on their adventures on a Friday and come back to school the following Wednesday. The children can share their adventures with our mascots by either writing or drawing in the book or telling us all about it; a particular favourite on a Friday afternoon after a busy week of learning!

 

We get asked a lot if there is anything you can do at home to support your child's learning at home. Reading with your child at least 3 times per week is really important. Also, each week there is a list of spellings for them to practice inside their reading diary which are based on words they have been introduced to in Phonics. Helping your child to practice these and listening to them read is crucial. You can help their Maths by practicing counting forwards and backwards and also getting those number bonds to 10 and then 20 embedded in their brains. If you need help supporiting your child, please talk to us.
