Class Dojo is our online communication platform,  it will be used to communicate with  parents and carers to keep you up to date with what is happening in Year 1B.  You can use Class Dojo to ask any questions and we will do our best to help and answer them.

If a parent or career wishes to speak to a member of the Year 1 team in person, we ask that they use ClassDojo or phone the school office to arrange a suitable time to meet.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any concerns. 

Physical Education 

PE will be on Mondays and Fridays.  Your child’s PE kit should consist of a white  t-shirt,  black shorts and pumps/trainers. PE kits can be left in school for the half term.  Earrings are not to be worn for PE. If children have earrings in they need to be removed by themselves. Members of staff CAN NOT remove earrings due to health and safety. Hair needs to be tied up.

Homework / Home learning

Homework will be set weekly. This will consist of a weekly spelling list, looking at the harder to read and spell words and either a piece of English or Mathematics work. It will be sent out on a Friday to be returned  by the following Wednesday.  The weekly spelling test will be on Friday during our phonics and spelling sessions. 


We encourage children to read a wide range of books. We send home a school reading book and the children all have accounts on Bug Club to access additional books. Please feel free though to read any other books you have with your child.

All children have a specific banded home reading book. This will be continually targeted to their reading ability and fluency to enable them to become confident, fluent readers. We expect the children to read their reading book at least three times a week. 


Reading books will be changed on FRIDAYS. 

We do not expect children to read a whole book each night! Little and often is the key to a successful and happy reader. Re-reading books enables children to become more confident and fluent in their reading.

We aim to instill a love of reading in the children, where they see reading as a pleasure and not a chore.
