Homework & Spellings

Homework is sent home on a Friday and is due back on the Monday. Please ensure your child completes their homework, as it is set to embed the concepts we have learned throughout the week.

The children will also be tested on the Year One Common Exception and Tricky Words.

Reading Books

Reading Books are sent home twice a week.

Sent home Friday - return On Monday

Sent home Tuesday- return on Thursday.

We ask that you read with your child at home frequently and make brief comments in their reading record to indicate that the book has been read.

Spellings are also sent home on a Friday and are to be kept at home for children to practice. Children are tested on the spellings on the following Friday.  Children could learn 5 spellings a night to make learning them more manageable.


Physical Education  takes place on Thursday and Friday. 
Our PE kit includes black pumps, green shorts and white polo or t-shirt. Please label them with your child's name clearly.

The Daily Mile

In Year One we do the Daily Mile on a daily basis, where we try and jog in the fresh air.  We are trying our very best to jog for longer, in order to stay fit and healthy.


Lunch is from 12.00 - 1.15

Additional Class Information


Children are awarded stickers for super behaviour, their work and for using good manners. If they have full marks in their spellings, they are awarded a special certificate.

House Points

House points for groups of children are awarded daily and the total is added up each Monday. The winning house receive a trophy on Monday during Celebration Assembly.

Please make sure your child's coat, tie, and jumper or cardigan, are labelled clearly with your child's name.
