We aim to make the transition from EYFS to Year One as smooth as possible for our pupils. The classroom is set up to include many areas of continuous provision to allow our children to continue to take responsibility over their own learning and access resources independently to pursue their own interests. Opportunities for self initiated play are provided throughout the day with more formal learning being introduced at the children's pace and stage of learning.
Homework files will be sent home each Friday. This will include a small set of spellings to learn, maths homework and phonics. Pieces of work should be returned into school the following week to be marked. Marked work will then be returned home. Please remove these from the file to ensure that only current homework is returned to school. Please could reading bags be brought into school every day. Your child will be given two new books every Monday. The teachers will stamp the reading record reward chart when it has been signed. Please listen to your child read as much as possible. Your child will also bring home a picture book for you to read to them. This includes a sheet with activities to complete related to the book. This is optional.
