'Traditional Tales'

In our class you will find:

Miss George – Class Teacher

In our lessons this half term we will be learning:

Our P.E. days are Wednesday and Thursday. Please ensure that correct P.E. kit is in school all week. Children will need a P.E. t-shirt, a pair of P.E. shorts and Plimsolls or Trainers. You may like to include a long sleeved t-shirt or jumper and long trouser bottoms for outside games. Please make sure all items of clothing are named. All jewellery must be removed. We are not permitted to remove a child’s earrings, so children will need to be able to do this themselves. Long hair should also be tied back.

Reading is very important in Year 1. Your child will bring home a reading book on a Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Please read these each evening and return these so they can be changed for a new one. We have chosen to give children two days per book so that they can look at the books in more detail, developing their comprehension skills. Information and support about reading can be found on our school website. I also ask that you please add comments to your child’s log book as these are a way of letting us know how they are getting on with their reading at home. Please use the blue St John’s book bags for the daily readers as the yellow book bags are used for Library books.

We ask that each day the children bring with them:
- Water bottle (no juice please)
- Bookbag
- Healthy snack
- Packed lunch, unless they are having a free school meal
- A coat or jacket

Please ensure that all personal belongings/items of clothing are clearly named.

Homework will be sent out on a Tuesday and will consist of spellings/ handwriting and a maths task. It is expected that all homework books are brought back on Mondays. Spelling tests will also be on Mondays.

If you have any questions, please feel free to come and speak to me at the end of the school day.
