In Year 1 we have PE with the sports coach on a Tuesday afternoon and with our teachers on a Thursday.
We leave our PE kits in school and try to bring them home for washing during the school holidays.
We change our Read, Write Inc. Book bag book during our final phonics lesson of the week, usually on a Thursday. These books are closely matched to our phonic ability.
We still have some book banded books available for parents to also take home and read with us in the corridor. Reading a range of books will build up our reading stamina and love of reading.
There is also a wide range of books to choose from in our school library, parents are welcome to use the library with us after school.
Phonics Screening check
In June we are given a check to assess our phonic knowledge. Our teachers carry out this check with us and they make it fun and not scary! All Year 1 children i the UK are given the phonics check, you can find out more details about it here;
We are provided with a piece of fruit to eat at morning break time each day, but some parents may wish to provide their own snack. Please ensure that these are healthy and do not contain chocolate or too much sugar
