Year 1 2021 - 2022

Miss Longden-Stent

Welcome to Year 1! 

Key Information from 8th March 2021 (return to school)

The school day at Psalter Lane site for Y1's begins at 9.00. The children should wait with you in the side yard until Mr McPhail or Mrs Sharman is ready to help you line up.

At 2.50pm, your child will need to be collected from the same door. We ask if you would please be considerate in leaving the site promptly (unless you need to speak to a staff member), so that the Y1 and Y2 bubbles aren't mixing at this time. 

What you need to bring

Every child will need a PE kit, water bottle and pencil case to be kept in school. A snack box should be brought in each day in a clearly labelled box or bag. Book bags with book folders can some in each day. Please read with your child at home as often as you can. If your child needs a 'spares bag' please make sure everything in it is clearly labelled and given to Mrs Sharman to pop on their peg. 

Their book folder contains:

- a reading scheme book

- any words / phonics sounds they are practicing

- a reading journal 

- a book they are sharing with you, or reading for pleasure (your child has chosen this book.) It might be they have a series or book they are enjoying at home, they are most welcome to pop that one in if they prefer.

Please make sure your child has a warm coat in school every day, and a warm jumper on. Classroom windows will be open for ventilation (10 mins per hour), and we will spend a lot of time outside.

Other Key Info

Dance will be on a Tuesday with Miss Lizzie, and ourdoor PE is either Wednesday or Friday. It may change depending on the weather!

New phonics and spellings patterns, as well as homework, will be shared via Google classroom. Any other correspondance or paperwork will come via email from Mrs Hudson in the office. If you need to get in touch with either Mr McPhail or Mrs Sharman, please email at any time, or ring the office to leave a message with Mrs Hudson if you would like us to phone you.

Bug Club and Abacus home learning log-ins remain the same. We will update your child's online reading books as we assess them. As the children have moved onto the new reading scheme, you may find your child has changed level as they return to school. 

Any other questions or queries, please let us know.

Mr McPhail (Teacher) and Mrs Sharman (TA)
