How can you help at home?
Reading is so important at this age, we would really appreciate if you would read with your child as often as possible; we recommend 10 minutes every day. Your child will be given a reading book to bring home which is matched to the level they are working in for phonics. This needs to be brought into school every day. You will also find a reading diary which we ask if you would please write in, every time you read with your child.
Children are set reading books and quizzes which they can read online. Each child has their own username and password which can be found in their reading diary.

We use the Read, Write Inc phonics scheme to teach children to read. Children are taught sounds and how to use them to read words then sentences and stories. During the summer term, Year 1 children have a phonics screening check to assess how well they can use the sounds they know to read a range of real and nonsense words.
You can find some useful links to information below:
All Year 1 children have outdoor P.E on Thursdays and should come to school wearing their P. E kit. Children also have indoor P.E on a Tuesday in the first half of the autumn term, spring term and summer term. In the second half of each term, children will have P.E on a Friday.
