Below is some Key Information for Year 1


General Information

Home Reading

We greatly value reading and recognise how important it is to help children to learn and progress. We are very grateful to parents/carers for their support with reading at home. To help you record their home reading you will find a Reading Record booklet in their blue book bag.  Each time your child reads at home please note down what they have read and a comment in this book; school staff will check this weekly.  The children should bring their book bag to school daily and will take home a phonetically decodable book on a Monday and Friday evening and a 'reading for pleasure' library book on a Wednesday.

Each week the children will take part in an adult lead guided reading session in school.  This will be recorded on a yellow reading card which will be brought home for you to see on a Friday.  This is just for your information to see how the children have read in school but please sign this each week to show you have read the comment, but this must be brought back to school for staff to use on Mondays.

As a school we have also subscribed to a fantastic online book resources called 'Bug Club'.  These books are based on phonics and will help the children develop and practise their phonics at their level.  We ask that children read two of these allocated books each week.



All children need to have their full PE kits in school. PE lessons will take place inside and outside; so as well as your child's PE kit and pumps can you please send in an outdoor kit.  From time to time, the children may also be asked to bring a pair of wellies to school, but you will be notified of this via TEAMS.

Water bottles and snacks

Your child should bring their named water bottle to school every day. Children can also bring a healthy snack for morning break. This can be fresh fruit or toast.
