Year 1 will be moving our homework to Google classroom at the beginning of Autumn 2. We will be sending out a 'how to' sheet so you know how to access the accounts. There will also be a self isolation pack available if those events arise.
PE days: Mondays and Thursdays
Children must come to school in their PE kit on Mondays and Thursdays and do not need to bring their uniform to change into.
Reminder: Children must wear black bottoms on PE days.
Water bottles: Children need to have a named water bottle in school each day as our water fountains are currently unavailable.
Book Bags: Please bring in books bags on Wednesdays and Fridays.
Spellings: Spelling Tests will be given on Thursdays and returned on Fridays. Please do not return spelling sheets back to school, they are not needed.
Curriculum Letter for August 2
Homework will be set every Friday afternoons on the website. There will not be homework books provided for tasks. Please encourage children to complete the tasks to help practice skills learned in class.
After the half term we will be uploading the homework weekly to Google Classroom. You will find the password in their yellow reading books. If they are not there, email your class teacher and they can give them to you.
Please find Aquamarines class' homework here:
Please find Paua class' homework here.
Tests will be given on Thursdays. Children can revise and practice their words. The weekly lists will be posted on the Year 1 page as well as all the lists for Autumn 1.
Please read with your child for at least 10 minutes every evening. Encourage your child to talk about the text and if possible, give them the opportunity to read aloud.
Reading books will be given on Fridays (1 for each child to read at their ability and 1 to read for enjoyment with a parent). Please fill and sign their reading record book each time. These books must be returned to school on Wednesdays and a new book will be given again on Friday. As part of our COVID procedures, books will be kept in a sealed box for 3 days before they are used again. Please use the reading records as a source of communication with the teachers so we can make sure they are reading books at the correct level.
