Key information

We expect children to read at least 4 times a week. Please could you sign your child’s reading diary each time they read with you at home. The children are rewarded in our weekly celebration assemblies for consistent home reading throughout each half term. It would be lovely to see lots of our class receiving a certificate each half term!

Homework is given out on a Monday and expected to be returned by the following Monday. Children can return their homework as soon as it is complete.

Weekly spellings and times tables test take place each Friday.

Our PE lessons are every Thursday afternoon. Children need their full kit in school every week: white T-shirt, blue/black shorts & black pumps. Children are unable to wear trainers when we have PE in the school hall, only pumps or bare foot. If your child takes part in an after school club that require a PE kit please can you ensure their kit is returned the next day & available for PE lessons.

After school clubs that we offer in Year 1 are;  Mindfulness, Lego therapy and additional phonics support

Look here to see an overview of what your child will be learning this year.  Please see curriculum pages for a more detailed look into the Northcote Curriculum.
