Welcome to Key Stage 1

A warm welcome to you all. We are very much looking forward to working with you and your child this year and have an exciting year planned.

We are very keen to help your child further develop their pleasure for reading and we encourage you and your child to read each evening (10/15 minutes) to develop their understanding of what they are reading. Reading books will be changed on demand, so please encourage your child to return their books each day to be changed.

The children will receive homework each Friday to be returned by Wednesday of the following week.  If your child is unsure about their homework they can ask their class teacher about it on Monday or Tuesday. Please encourage your child to complete their homework as this will be linked to the Maths they have been working on in class each week.  The topic homework grid is also expected to be completed each week. In addition, please practice times tables, use 'Times Tables Rock Stars' and learn their spellings.  Spellings will also be sent home each Friday for a test the following Friday.

We are continuing to use class dojos as a reward system and to communicate more effectively with parents. Thank you to all that have signed up to their parent account. Please sign up as soon as possible if you haven't done so already.

Our topic this term is 'Leyland'. Please see the attached topic overview for more details. The homework grid is also attached.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch. You can contact us through Class Dojos or email us at:
