Welcome to Year 1.
As we enter the new academic year we ask you to please take a look at all of the info below that contains the important 'stuff' for day to day life at Poplars!
Your teachers are: Miss Hunter and Miss Jackson.
Don't forget to scroll down to the class pages to see what we have been doing this week and any photos we have taken.
Please ensure that all of your children’s clothes are clearly labelled with their names, this enables lost items to be returned to their owners! Children must not trainers.
Due to current COVID19 restrictions we ask that your child comes to school in their PE kit on the days that they are due to have their lesson as we cannot provide areas for them to change.
1SJ have PE every Monday and Wednesday
1YH have PE every Monday and Friday
Please ensure that all PE kit is clearly labelled with your child’s name.
Their PE kit should consist of:
It is really important for your child to practise reading as much as possible in order to consolidate their learning in school and to help them to broaden their vocabulary skills, general knowledge and imagination. While we practise reading in school as much as possible, each child is expected to read to an adult/older sibling at home at least 3 times per week. This needs to be dated and signed by the adult/older sibling who hears them to read in their reading record book.
Children who meet this requirement receive rewards and prizes for themselves and the class.
Homework will be given out on a Friday and needs to be back into school by the following Wednesday in order for it to be marked.
Spellings homework will be sent home each Friday by your child's 'Read, Write, Inc' teacher, and will be checked the following Friday.
Please inform your child’s teacher immediately if they have any medical conditions/requirements.
Please speak to the office if medication is required within the school day. If your child only requires medication to be taken between 1-3 times per day then they do not need to take it while at school.
We're looking forward to a great year!
