Our PE lessons will be on a Wednesday afternoon with a sports coach from Everton Partnership. Due to COVID19 restrictions your child is to come into school wearing their outdoor PE kit on this day.



Children are expected to read at home as much as possible and can still have books from school to take home. However, with COVID-19 restrictions, any book or book bag brought back to school will need to be left for at least 24 hours before being changed. Books need to be returned to school on a Friday. They will be changed and new ones sent out on a Tuesday.  Children who read at home will receive 5 dojos which they can spend at the end of each term.


The children will receive a list of spellings to learn each week. They will be sent out on a Tuesday and need to be returned on Friday. Any child who completes their spellings will receive 5 dojos.


By the end of Year 1 Children are expected to be able to count forwards and backwards to 100 from any number. Please practise counting at home.  This half term the children are also working on addition and subtraction. Please learn and practise recalling number facts within and to 10 such as 3+4=7, 8+2=10.


Our theme this half term is ‘Fire, Fire’ Click here to see our curriculum overview and homework challenge.
