Reading Books / Library Books

Reading Books will be given out on a Monday and a Thursday.  At school your child will have the opportunity to read to a member of staff at least two times a week (including our guided reading sessions).


Reading, Writing, Reflection and Design Areas:

We are using Continuous Provision in Year 1, each area will have a challenge for the children to complete. Some of the areas we include:

A dedicated reading area in class.  The reading area has a wide selection of new books that the children may choose from on a weekly basis.

There is a writing area for two children to work at for extra work on things such as sentence structure, handwriting and SPAG.

We have a reflection area where the children are allowed to spend time reflecting upon anything that has happened in class or at home that week.

A maths area with resources to help the children with any work they are completing. 

There is a creation area where the children can draw, paint or create a range of their ideas!

A finger gym to help with fine motor skills such as cutting and mark making.

Matching to our topic, there is a role play area for the children to use to help their understanding of our topic.

We also have a construction and small world area with lots of resources for the children to use and build with.


Before and After School

At the beginning of the school day, before registration, the children will have different handwriting activities to complete throughout the year. 

School finishes at 3.15pm. Children will be dismissed from the playground.


General Reminders

The children will be doing PE twice a week and they may wear their kits all day on Thursdays.  PE kits consist of suitable trainers, black or blue shorts / sports trousers, a white T-shirt and their blue Copp jumpers / cardigans.


The children must also bring in their own water bottles and hand sanitiser in from home, but please make sure that they are labelled also.
