If you have any questions or concerns that you would like to discuss with us then please contact the office to make an appointment to see us, we are more than happy to meet with you. Remember short messages can be passed on to the staff who are on the door each morning.

 We have been very happy to see so many  of the children wearing their full correct school uniform and setting such a brilliant example for the rest of the school, thank you.

Can you please ensure your child has their PE kit in school everyday.

Please ensure these are named.

PE will be on Wednesdays. We will be participating in tennis lessons on Tuesdays. We will begin practicing for  Sports Day this half term too. 

We encourage all children to bring a water bottle to class, which they can refill at regular intervals during the day in order to keep themselves well hydrated.  Please could you make sure that water bottles are labelled clearly with your child's full name.

In Year 1 reading at home  is vitally important for the children. 

We expect the children to read  out loud to an adult at least 5 times a week at home. Please sign or initial in the homework diary to confirm that this has been completed. Please remember that you have access to a wealth of Bug Club books to support this.

Choose 5-10 spellings from the list in the homework diary to practise each week.   Should you require further words please speak to your child's class teacher.

Maths passports (Stage 1) are located in the homework diary-please practise a couple of  the skills each week.


Children should have their homework folders in school every day. Homework diaries will be checked in school on Fridays.



Please remember to use My Maths at home to support your child's learning. Tasks will be set by teachers when appropriate to reinforce learning.  General number activities can be accessed at any point.


Remember that as the weather gets warmer children need to come to school wearing suncream and bring a sunhat!
