Year 1 – ‘Bright’ and ‘Carle’


Children will receive weekly homework in Year 1. This may consist of Spellings or a Maths activity.

Homework will be set using Google Classroom every Friday and needs to be completed by the following Thursday. Please make sure you are signed up to Google Classroom. .

Children should be reading five times a week at home. Where possible encourage your child to read daily, even if it is just 5 minutes before bed. It doesn’t have to be their book from school, it could be a magazine, comic, or anything else they enjoy.  Children have reading diaries where you can comment on your child’s reading at home and they can keep track of the books they have read. There is also a useful section on common words to read and spell. Reading books will be changed on Tuesday (Carle Class) Friday (Bright Class)>

Swimming & PE

Year 1 PE sessions will take place every Thursday.  Children must come to school dressed in their PE kits and will continue to wear them for the rest of the day. PE kit is a white t-shirt, blue or navy shorts and suitable footwear (trainers or pumps).

Water bottles

Due to current COVID restrictions, children are not allowed to have water bottles in class.  Named cups will be provided for drinking water, and these will remain in school. It is important for children to keep hydrated throughout the day. Unless this has been discussed with a class teacher for medical reasons.

Dojo Points 

Children will be awarded dojos for outstanding effort, kindness, helpfulness and anything else that staff feel they have worked hard on or gone above and beyond for.
