Class Expectations

 

Independence

 

We are encouraging the children to become more independent and to look after their own belongings,  You can help your child to do this by putting their name in all of their clothing.  As the weather gets warmer please continue to send your child to school wearing clothing for the weather and a coat as the weather can change quickly.

Year 1 PE, swimming and Forest School

We would like to remind you to put names in all of your children's clothing. They are allowed a water bottle in class, this should also have a name on. Below you will find PE and Forest School information such as what your child needs for these sessions. It is important that they are prepared for these lessons as PE is statutory requirement for all children.

 

P.E is on a Friday morning.

Please ensure you child has kit in school which include- Red t-shirt, black shorts and plimsoles. We do not have spare kit in school for the children to wear so if they do not have kit they will not be able to take part.

PE kits will be returned home at the end of each half term and should come back into school in time for the first PE session of the half term.

 

Forest School is on a Monday morning.

Please send your child to school with suitable clothing that you don't mind getting wet and muddy.  This should include sturdy shoes, boots or wellies, a warm coat, warm trousers and jumper.  

Children will need to bring school shoes whenever they wear wellies or other footwear to school.

 

Swimming happens on a Wednesday morning.

Please meet Mr Simpson and Mrs Eggleton at the pool entrance at 8.30.  If your child is not swimming they will still be expected to come to the pool at 8.30 as this is part of our PE curriculum.

Phonics Screening test for Year 1.

 

Each year Year 1 children take part in a phonics screening test.  This will happen in May 2023.
