The most important thing for you to do with your year 1 child is to read. In Elm class, they will be able to change their books every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Please read each book with your child at least twice before asking them to change them. It is important to read stories to your child as well as asking them to read - children love to hear their parents read them stories.
Homework is set on a Friday to be returned by the following Thursday. It is normally on a maths theme based on the week's work but it will occasionally link into topic or other subjects. Each holiday children will bring home their holiday homework book instead.
Please could children bring all phonic books and homework back by each Thursday as spelling tests will be completed in the back of the spelling books.
