Year 1 Autumn Term Newsletter 2017/18

Homework

In Year 1 all children will receive weekly homework which will include; maths, English and reading. This will be set on a Monday and due back in the following Friday. It is an expectation that all children complete homework within this timeframe. Homework can be recorded by writing in homework books or sending a picture via Class Dojo.

It is expected that children read at home as often as possible, at least three times a week, and this is to be dated and recorded in their homework diary.

Alongside weekly homework, we will also expect children to use some time at home to support their project work in school.

PE and Swimming

All Year 1 children need to have their PE kit in daily, this needs to include, royal blue shorts, white t-shirt (no logos), sports shoes (black pumps or sensible trainers), Black or grey tracksuit bottoms for winter sports, outdoor royal blue school sweatshirt (current round neck school jumper can be worn), long hair to be tied back and no earrings. Paris and Madrid will be swimming every Wednesday.

If your child needs to be excused from swimming due to an illness please send in a written note informing your child’s teacher or send a message via Dojo. Children will need fitted trunks or a one piece swimming costume (no bikinis or board shorts), swimming hats for long hair, no earrings to be worn (children are expected to be able to take their own earrings out.).

Class Dojo

This year we will be continuing to use Class Dojo, alongside Parent Pay, as the main means of communication between school and parents; sharing activities and upcoming events on the Class Story. If you have not yet received your log in details please come and see us.
