What do i need in school?

Every day Year 1 children are required to bring: a book bag containing their reading diary and guided reading book; a named water bottle and ta P.E kit which needs to be kept in a separate bag that can remain on their individual peg. 



Our P.E sessions are on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. For our Wednesday / Thursday session children will be split into two groups. Group A will have swimming on Wednesday for 5 weeks whilst Group B will have gymnastics. The groups will then switch after spring half term. After our Friday session children will go home in their kits due to a lack of time to change back into school uniform. Kit therefore needs returning to school on Monday morning.


Some useful info on timings.

Year 1 will be having a show and tell on a Monday afternoon. This time will be an opportunity for children to show off the exciting things they are doing in their home life as well as work they have completed related to our topic. Suggestions of this work can be found on the term break down. This time will sadly not be reserved for showing off our favourite toys.

Thursday afternoon we will also be looking at the children's reading diaries. We shall count up home reads and add them to our class reading chart. Children will then be able to see how many reads they require for their next reward!
