Autumn Term 2018

Welcome to your first term in Year One! The children have settled into their new class and routine extremely well and are enjoying seeing all of their friends and exploring their new classroom. We have lots of exciting things planned for our first term and you will be learning lots of new things.


We will continue to line up at 8:55 in the main playground. Children are to be collected at 3:15 – parents to gather by the gate on the main playground where children enter school in the mornings and not outside the classroom door. Please ensure the office have up to date contact numbers and inform a member of staff if someone new will be collecting your child.


Please bring your book bag into school everyday and practise your reading book every night. Parents please continue to write in your child’s yellow reading diary when they have read at home.

Home work will be sent home every week – alternating between literacy and numeracy homework. Spellings will also go out on a Friday to be learnt for a spelling test the following Friday.


Children are permitted to bring a named water bottle into school and can bring in a healthy snack for break time each day.

PE bags should be brought into school as soon as possible and PE will take place on Monday afternoons.
