PE Lessons

Year 1 pupils have their P.E. lesson on a Wednesday Afternoon.

Please send your child to school in their P.E Kit – white t-shirt, plain black or navy shorts / plain black or navy jogging bottoms, plain black or navy hoodie (or they can wear their school jumper/cardigan)

In Summer term the children will be attending swimming lessons at Castleview Academy.

Girls will need a black or navy swimsuit and a swimming cap (which can be purchased at Castleview). Boys will need black or navy swimming trunks (no shorts).




Spellings will be sent home to learn later in the term once the children have all settled in.

Each week, your child will bring home a phonics sheet with a reading or writing task to complete. This is to show you which sounds we have been learning in school. Please share the sheet with your child but due to current guidelines, please keep this sheet at home for your reference.

 Thank you for your continued support with homework!





Reading books need to be brought into school every Monday and Friday.

Please hear your child read every day. At the moment, we will keep your child’s reading record book in school. We will hear your child read at school throughout the week and change their book if necessary. If your child forgets to bring home their home reader they can read a book from home instead.

Try to read a story to your child every day.

Library books will be brought home weekly in the future.
