Welcome to Year One's Class Page


Hello children and parents! Well done to all our fantastic children for an amazing start to the year.

We have so many fun things planned for you, and it is all starting with our first topic called My School. 


Please see the information below which you may find useful to help the transition into Year 1. If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact Miss Ponting or Miss Scates.




Personal Belongings


As we start a new school year, please can you make sure all your items are labeled clearly with children's names. This includes jumpers, coats, water bottles, snack pots.




The children may bring in a healthy snack from home if they would like to. A healthy snack is a piece of fruitvegetablessalad or plain breadsticks, plain rice cakes, plain popcorn. Please no juice.

  The school will provide a fruit snack for your child each day.

All children must bring in a named, reusable water bottle each day.

Milk continues to be available for those children who have subscribed via the cool milk website.




Homework will be uploaded to the Teams page, every Tuesday by 4pm. It will contain three days worth of English and Maths tasks linked to our daily learning that should be completed on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evening. If you cannot complete the homework on the set nights then feel free to move things around to suit your child's needs. If you get stuck at home, please talk to us and we will help you to find a solution.




Reading records and reading books will be kept in each child's reading packet. Please can children bring this in daily and put in our classroom box. Please ensure reading packets have children's names on clearly.


Children will bring home 2 reading coloured band sharing books each week. Children will be reminded and encouraged to change this book independently on a Tuesday morning and Friday morning.  


They will also be given a Phonics focused book once a week to help practice and learn key sounds as well as improving decoding skills. Children are currently learning this new routine and will grow in independence across the next few weeks, but may need reminders to change the colored book and keep the phonics book safely in their reading packet.


 Please continue to read and share books with your child on a daily basis and record reading experiences in their reading record.





Our PE days are Monday and Friday. Please come into school dressed in the PE kit.



Thank you for your support,
