Key information:

Star of the week: Star of the week assembly takes place on a Friday at 09:00. Two adults for each star can join us in school to celebrate their child’s achievement.

PE: Y1 PE days are: Monday and Wednesday.

PE:  Y2 PE days are: Monday(5 and 6), Tuesday (C6) and Thursday (C5).

Reading Books: Please read 3 times a week at home as this positively impacts your child’s progress in reading and writing. If your child reads 3 times a week, they will be a Reader Leader and could receive a certificate in our Reader Leader assembly. Teachers also select a child each week to receive a ‘golden ticket’ which allows them to borrow a reading for pleasure book from our school library.

Reading for Pleasure Books: Alongside your child’s reading book which is tailored to their reading level, your child will also be given a ‘reading for pleasure’ book. This book is for you to share together at home to promote a love of reading. Reading for pleasure books will be changed when returned to school.

Homework: Your child will be given homework on a Friday. They have until the following Thursday to complete their homework and hand it back to the class teacher.

Class Emails: Please feel free to contact any member of the KS1 staff should you have questions or queries.
