Homework will be sent home with the class newsletter on a Friday. If it is a piece which needs handing in, it is expected back the following Wednesday. Home learning tasks will consist of a piece of phonics, maths, handwriting and reading (which should be every evening). Maths and Handwriting activities will alternate each week. Every half term, the children will have a creative topic-based project to do. The first project will be sent out after half term. I will dedicate a day at the end of each term for the children to show off their projects and explain how they completed it.
PE is on a Wednesday and a Friday. This term we have football and rugby. The lessons will be outside, even in the rain (within reason!) so please make sure your child has a warm tracksuit as the weather gets cooler and a special pair of white PE socks! Please name all of your child’s clothing so that if anything does go missing, we can reunite it with it’s owner quickly!
Our behaviour chart in Year 1 lines up with the school behaviour policy. We have a space rocket theme. The children all begin the day on ‘Green’ and move up or down the chart depending on their behaviour choices. If they make a wrong choice, they will first be given a verbal warning. If they continue to make the wrong behaviour choices, they will be moved down to ‘Blue’ which is a visual warning. Continuing to make bad choices will mean they move further down the behaviour chart, in accordance with school policy.
If the children make good choices and show examples of good behaviour or good work, they can be moved up the chart and we have a reward system, alongside our school house points and merits points.
Purple – A special sticker
Silver – 2 house points
Gold – 1 merit point (worth 5 house points)
Rocket – A lucky dip prize
