Expectations for Y1


Here are the expectations for your child in Y1

  • Reading is to be done every night at home and diaries are to be signed by the adult who listened to them. Planners are checked daily.   

  • Spellings are handed out on a Friday to be practised at home as well as in school and a test is given every Friday. 

  • Homework will be given at the end of each term.  Homework is used to consolidate or extend the learning that has taken place in school. 

  • Attendance is expected to be at least 97%. This is equivalent to having just five days off throughout the academic year. 

  • PE kits are to be kept in school at all times. PE kits will be taken home at the end of each half term to be washed. ​ 

  • Children are to wear a plain white T-shirt, black shorts and black pumps for PE lessons as per the school uniform policy. 

  • It is essential that your child’s name is clearly labelled with their full name in all uniform.
