Please send us all the lovely activities you and your families are getting up to...
Our library day is a Friday.
If you would like your child to change their library book please bring on a Friday.
Our PE day is a Monday morning.
The PE curriculum is delivered by Mr Mann who is a PE specialist.
Please ensure your child has a PE kit if you are unsure whether they have one in school, please ask class teachers.
PE kits can be sent home to be washed at the end of each half term. Let us know if you would like this to be sent home with your child, however it must be returned the first day back after the holidays.
We have a big focus on phonics in Year one.
Phonics is delivered twice a day.
A typical phonics session includes;
- recapping previous taught sounds
- teaching a new sound
- practising reading words by segmenting and blending with the new sound
- writing words with the new sound
- reading alien words (nonsense words)
- practising reading and writing a sentence
You can help your child at home by accessing the websites below;
