Young Writers Competition

Children in Year 1 last year entered a competition to write a story about "Ocean Adventures" and some of the stories were so good they have been published! Here are some of the lucky winners...

Welcome to Key Stage 1 for the new school year.  The children have settled in well and are working hard already.
Here a few key prompts for parents to help your children learn and become independent:
  • Planners should be in school every day and signed once a week
  • Maths and splleings homework will be sent home once a week - please support your child in completing these.
  • PE kits should be in school all week and PE days do sometimes change.
  • Your child needs a named water bottle in school.
  • Your child needs to come into the cloakroom in a morning unaccompanied, and will learn to sort their own bags, coats and books out - this really helps them develop independence.
  • Please try and read with your child every night, even for just five minutes, and then write in their reading record, this really does help them progress.
  • We use the Read Write Inc phonics and reading scheme throughout Key Stage 1.  If you have any questions about this or any other area of the curriculum, pleae speak to your child's class teacher.
Thank you, and we look forward to a successful and enjoyable year for your children.
