Spring Term Catch-up
Welcome back to the Spring Term Year 1. We can’t wait to explore our new theme for this term which is – Our Wonderful World… Paws, Claws and Whiskers. It promises to be a fun-filled term of learning and excitement.
Parents, thank you for all your support and cooperation during the past term. As we move into our second term, we will be tightening our enforcement of school rules with regard to the use and provision of school equipment. This includes P.E .kits, school water-bottles, reading books and reading records. Please read the details below carefully so that you are aware of our school’s expectations.
Year 1’s House keeping:
P.E – PE kits must be brought to school on Monday so that they are ready for the week ahead. P.E sessions will continue to he held be every Thursday and Friday. The kit will be kept at school and sent home at the end of each half term or at your request (but please ensure that they are returned to school on time for these sessions). Earrings must be removed prior to the children coming into school. We are not allowed to help them remove earrings and they will be unable to do PE. Please ensure all uniforms are labelled with the child’s name, as alternative uniforms cannot be provided should theirs go missing.
Water bottles – Children must use the school bottles; only the school bottle is permitted. They are available from via parent mail or directly from the school office. These BPA free bottles cost £1.50 and 40p for an additional lid. These must be brought to school every day to school. Please make sure that these are well labelled with permanent markers or waterproof labels. Hydration is important so please ensure that these bottles are filled with water and not juice.
Reading books and diaries should be in school every day. Each week, the children will bring home books to read at home. These will match their reading levels. Although your child may need support calling some words or reading with good expression or at a good pace, they should be able to read it fluently and independently The children will have a set reading day at school. On this day, their books and reading records will be checked. Books should be read 3 times. Please record evidence of this in their reading diaries.
Homework - On Friday, we will set a piece of homework which should be returned by the following Friday.
Uniforms - At Templars, we pride ourselves in our appearance and in, being smart, starts with looking smart. Children are required to wear full uniforms to school at all times. Please inform me or the school office if for any reason, it is not possible to do this and we will take this into consideration.
If you ever need to chat with anyone in our Year 1 team, we always see the children out at the end of the day, so I am available to speak then. Should you require an appointment, don’t hesitate to contact us on our school email addresses:
Alternatively, please call the office. We will return your call at the earliest possible time.
