Croeso i Flwyddyn Un / Welcome to Year 1
I hope you will find this information regarding Blwyddyn Un/Year One of help to you and your child:
Reading books and reading record books, need to be brought to school every day, please. The children participate in Guided Reading Sessions and various fun reading activities daily. We encourage the Children to read at home to an adult on a regular basis. You are welcome and encouraged to sign and comment in the record book when you have read with your child at home. We also have the ‘Bug Club’ reading scheme, which is a wonderful and fun online reading scheme, once children have read the books allocated to them they can proceed to the fun activities, linked to the books, these activities are assessed and the information can be read by the Class Teacher. Please contact us if you would like further information regarding the ‘Bug Club’ or would like to discuss any of our reading activities or need support. You may also wish to provide a reading folder or wallet to protect your child’s reading material.
We are also very proud to present at the start of a new school year a 'Home / School Resource Book Bag'. They have been filled with rich class resources and activities to support your child at home in Numeracy and Literacy. We would like the 'Book Bag's returned to school fortnightly on a Monday so that we can provide the children with a new activity and also read and share their weekend news.
We encourage the children to become independent and self reliant so children can bring 30p to school to purchase fruit of their choice from the fruit tuck shop.
PE Sessions - Friday
Please ensure that all items of PE kit are named as it is very difficult to return lost items to their owners if there is no name inside. Pupils are encouraged to bring the correct kit(indoor- plain white t-shirt and navy shorts / outdoor - white t-shirt/navy tracksuit trousers, trainers in the Summer please for outdoor games ) For personal safety, no jewellery or watches are to be worn and long hair is to be tied back.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding your child’s work and/or wellbeing at schoolplease do not hesitate to come in and see us.
