Peacocks - Year 1 - Mrs Matthews & Mrs Pendlebury

Welcome to Year 1!

Keep checking on our learning journey with Mrs Matthews and Mrs Pendlebury throughout the year.

PE is on a Tuesday. Please can you ensure your child has an indoor and outdoor PE kit as we often go outside for PE - even in the cold weather. This should include appropriate footwear i.e. pumps or trainers. We also participate in the daily mile each afternoon, therefore having appropriate footwear in school throughout the week is ideal.

Children are encouraged to bring a water bottle every day. We also provide children with a piece of fruit each day.

Homework goes out on a Friday and is due back the following Friday. Your child cannot get 'Learner of the Week' if they haven't brought it back! If your child's homework is brought back on time, they will receive 5 DOJOs for determination.

Within the class, children are also rewarded with dojo points for a variety of things which reflect the school's learning behaviours; Independence, Determination, Pride, Respect, Curiosity and Resilience. The highest point scorer will receive a prize from 'The Friday Prize Pot' each week.

In Peacocks Class, we are passionate about all our learning! One way we can really improve our learning at home is by reading. Your child is listened to at least once a week. Each child has a set reading day, check with Mrs Matthews or Mrs Pendlebury if you have forgotten your child's reading day. It is important that their reading book and reading record is in school on this day to ensure it can be changed and that their stickers can be updated (records needs to be signed if your child has read).

If your child's reading book needs changing, place it in the blue tray. We also participate in one hour of reading each morning and a guided reading session per week. Your child can read any books/ texts at home alongside school reading books and these can be written in the reading diaries too! We encourage this to ensure our children love what they read!

If you have any questions about your child's progress or learning, please do not hesitate to speak to Mrs Bentley, Mrs Smith or Miss Moseley and we look forward to sharing this learning with you ...
