If you have any concerns or questions our surgery time is: Tuesday
The surgery sessions will be held in the classroom of your child. If possible we ask you to make an appointment to ensure that we can see you at a set time. If it is an urgent matter please call in either just before school starts or straight after school although we may only have a short time to spare.
The children in Year 1 do PE on the following days

We would welcome any help in class from family members. This may involve hearing readers or practicing Maths or English activities. If you are interested in helping then please discuss with the class teacher.
Your child will have the opportunity to share and discuss books during English sessions. They will read to an adult weekly in guided reading sessions. Their home reading books are at a level appropriate to your child's ability. The books will be changed once a week and they will read a wide variety of books including books that focus at developing their phonics skills.
Children will receive homework (a Phonics activity) on a Friday. This needs to be returned by the following Wednesday.
Children will visit the school library to choose a book on a Friday. They need to return this book by the following Friday in order to choose a new one.
