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. They will also receive a raffle ticket for our reading raffle. Our reading raffle prize draw will be pulled every Friday.


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. This term we will also be working on counting in twos, fives and tens Please practise counting at home.
