Year 1

Start and End of School Day

At the start of the school day children are expected to be lined up on the playground for 8:55 a.m. A free Breakfast club now runs from 8:30 a.m. in the hall if children wish to attend. At the end of the day children will leave through the outside door of the classroom.


Just a reminder to put children’s names in their uniform, especially, jumpers, cardigans and coats.


P.E. will be on a Tuesday afternoon with Mr McGovern, therefore the children will need black shorts, black pumps and a white t-shirt in school on Tuesdays. Please can children’s names be put onto P.E. kits to ensure all children have their kit back in their bag. Thank you.


Homework will be sent home on a Monday and will be expected to be returned the following Monday. Spellings will also be given out on Mondays for children to learn throughout the week in preparation for a short spelling test on the following Monday. If completed before hand children are more than welcome to hand homework in during the week.


Reading opportunities are important in supporting children’s spelling and writing, therefore various opportunities to read will take place throughout the week in school. Children will each be given a reading book and reading log to take home to share. Children should bring their book to school every day.


Provisional dates for national testing this year are as follows:

Year 1 Phonics testing week - 10th - 14th June 2019

Please note that leave of absence requests WILL NOT be permitted during the above dates.
