Year 1 Library Bus day - Monday 

There will be some opportunities for your child to visit the library bus and choose a library book to share with you at home.  This library book must be kept inside their book bags and kept in good condition so when we do have the opportunity to visit the library bus we can change this book.




Spellings will still be tested on a Friday your child’s termly spelling sheet will be sent home in a folder relating to their house team colour.  These spelling folders need to be kept inside your child’s book bag at all times.  The children will complete their spelling test in a book which will remain in school but we will write a score underneath each week’s column so you know how your child has done. Also after the test on the Friday we will highlight pink any incorrect spellings so you can practise these words again with your child at home. 

Key Words
Children will be given termly key words to practise. 

Reading homework 

Each week your child will have the opportunity to change their school reading book on a Monday and a Thursday. When you read with your child at home please remember to write in their reading record book as this will help us to know if your child’s book needs changing. 

Children are expected to read daily for 5 - 10 minutes and record it in their reading journals.
