The school doors open at 8:45 every morning and children are asked to put their coats and bags on their pegs, choose their dinners and begin the morning challenge. During the first half term we welcome parents into class to support their child with the morning routine. However, to encourage independence we encourage children to come into school independently after October half term and ask parents to say goodbye outside the classroom.
A reading basket is provided for children to put their books in if they would like them changing. Please ensure your child does this on a morning so that there is sufficient time to change it before the end of the day.
This year Year 1 will be asked to complete homework tasks. The children can choose from a range of English, Maths and Topic tasks and should aim to complete one every week. Homework books are given out on a Wednesday and handed in and marked on a Monday. If you have any queries about homework please feel free to ask Miss Draxler or Mrs Collett at the beginning or end of the day.
Water bottles are filled and washed out everyday and children have access to them throughout the day.
In Year 1 we do PE on a Wednesday and Friday afternoon. PE kits should be brought in on a Monday and taken home on a Friday.
