Year 1

Welcome to the Year 1 class page for, Octopus Class (Miss Williams), Otter Class (Miss Kirby) and Owl Class (Miss Smith).  
Welcome to Year 1!
 
Uniform
Please ensure that all uniform (including bookbags, bottles, lunchboxes etc.) is labelled clearly with your child's name. 
 
PE
PE is carried out on the following days:
  • Octopus Class - Tuesdays and Thursdays
  • Owl Class - Mondays and Wednesdays
  • Otter Class - Tuesdays and Thursdays
Children need to come to school dressed in their PE kits on their PE days. As it gets colder, they should come to school wearing leggings or tracksuit bottoms. 
 
Homework and Spellings
Homework and spellings will start in Term 2. The list of spellings for each week will be sent out at the start of term. These will also be put on Seesaw. Spelling tests will take place every Friday. Please practise these during the week so that your child feels confident and prepared.
 
Homework will be put on Seesaw each week. You can find your child's login inside the front cover of their reading record. You will need to download the Seesaw app and scan the QR code through this, (You can also login through a web browser). We will be teaching the children how to access Seesaw independently throughout Term 1 in preparation for this. Please come and see us if you are having any trouble accessing it.
 
Reading Helpers
Parent/Carer helpers are always welcome in school. If you would like to volunteer to read with children please speak to your child's teacher. Please be aware that you will be placed in a different class to your child's. We are always very thankful for your help and support.
