Spring 2023


Important days

  • Reading books and phonics books should be brought to school every day. Please ensure that you have left a comment in the reading record each time your child reads at home. Year 1 children need to become fluent readers so your child should read a book twice before it is changed. 
  • Lending library books will be changed on a Tuesday.
  • Outdoor PE is on Wednesday (1B) and Thursday (1Y) and indoor PE is on a Tuesday. Please ensure your child has shorts or tight fitting leggings, white t-shirt, trainers and something warm for outdoor PE such as a tracksuit.  Please make sure long hair is tied back and earrings are removed. 
  • Homework and spellings will be given out on Friday and must be returned by Wednesday.  If your child needs help with their homework, please speak with their class teacher before the return day.



Here are 50 recommended books for Year 1.




We are following Essential Letters and Sounds.
