Welcome to Bluebell Class!
Year 1 will have PE every Thursday afternoon. Please ensure that children bring a full outdoor and indoor PE kit. As often as weather allows PE will be outside. Children will be expected to come to school in their normal school uniform and we will teach them how to get changed for their lessons.
Long hair should be tied back and earrings removed where possible otherwise please provide plasters. Please remember to label all the children’s uniform, this really helps us to identify mislaid items.
Every Friday the children will be set one piece of homework linked to their Knowledge Organisers. This should be returned by the following Thursday. Some creative homework will occasionally be included. Remember that any additional learning your child completes will be welcomed and celebrated.
Please continue to share the love of books with your child. Reading has such a positive impact on our children’s writing and spelling. Their Little Wandle e-book should be read 5 times per week to improve their fluency and recognition of words. We encourage the children to read and re-read books that contain sounds that they know. On top of this please encourage them to share online or real books. Any reading/sharing of books should be recorded on their Reading Record, one entry per day, and brought into school every Friday. To develop a love of books, please continue to share, revisit and reread favourite stories as, happy readers become confident readers.
Handwriting and Spellings:
As a school we have purchased a handwriting programme called Letter-Join. This has an online platform that children can access at home. Information will be sent home regarding how to access it. Common exception words for year 1 are uploaded so the children can combine their learning of spellings with their handwriting practice.
