 We use Class Dojo as a reward system in class alongside rewards. There is a facility on here for you to contact the class teacher via private message if you have any questions or concerns about anything.



Home Schooling

Take your time and have fun. 

A couple of quality hours throughout the day (20/30 minute sessions) is more than enough. They don't need to be sat at a table working for 5 hours. 

Learning is fun and isn't always about sitting down at a table. Lego, playdough and toys all hold educational value. 

There are plenty of free  educational apps to use on ipads/tablets etc. 

Enjoy getting outside. Wrap up warm and enjoy a little or big walk. Getting outside will help. 

Do what you can! A little of something will always be better than nothing. Remember if its not working, stop and have a break!

Worksheets: If we do attach a worksheet to a lesson, please do not feel you have to print it out. the worksheet may be just a guide or an example on how to set out the activity. Also we will be providing exercise books so the children can write their answers in there.

PE: our PE days are Tuesday and Thursday. We are currently only doing PE on Tuesday till further notice. 
Forest School:    
Sessions take place on a Wednesday. Children need a change of trousers, a good, warm waterproof coat and wellies. 
Read, read, read! Reading is extremely important and we value it highly. It is a major focus in Year One. It would greatly help your child if you listen to your child read at least 3 times a week. We will change books every week (Monday/Friday). We aim to listen to your child once a week individually but also during guided reading sessions (reading in a group). 
Your child will have a sheet of speed sounds and tricky words in their reading record. If you could find time to practise these also we would greatly appreciate it. 
Reading Raffle: Every time your child reads their name is entered into a reading raffle. At the end of each half term the raffle is drawn and the winner receives a hamper of goodies. 
Parent's raffle: every time you read to your child and record it in their reading journal, your name will also be entered into a raffle to win a £5 Costa voucher at the end of the half term.
