Welcome to Leopards Class!


We hope you had a lovely half term and are ready for our final term in Year 1. It is very exciting and we are going to be working harder than ever!


We say this every term, but it is still as important as ever, keep reading! We have a pledge to read for 10 minutes a day and we hope you manage to keep it up. Every Monday, two children are chosen to be “readers of the week” so we need to see that you are doing plenty of reading at home. Make sure you read as often as you possibly can with your child. It is so important and will help them within all aspects of the curriculum. Children must bring their reading book and record in every day as we like to try to hear every child read over each week. We will be changing books on Mondays and Fridays. Please make sure you remind your child to change their book on these days if they need to. You should have a Leopards reading record to write down every time your child has read, please let us know if you have misplaced this. We encourage reading with your child to take place as often as possible (at least 4-5 times per week) to further develop their phonic knowledge and understanding of different texts. The same reading book should be shared several times during the week to embed fluency and understanding. This is the pattern we advise:


1st : Read

2nd : Recount

3rd : Ask questions

4th : Reread




Our PE days are on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please make sure your child has a PE kit with labelled clothes. Please make sure your child has shorts as well as long trousers for PE, we don’t want anyone getting too hot.



Please ensure your child has a labelled jumper or cardigan, thank you to those who have already labelled theirs.



Over the last few weeks, we have been sending phonics slips home for homework. After this week, we will be back to setting work via Google Classroom. Please make sure your child completes their homework which will be set on a Friday each week. The homework tasks vary from week to week, sometimes there will be phonics and maths tasks to do. Other times the children will have something to complete for Topic.


Thank you and we look forward to the term ahead! 

Miss Williams, Mrs Phillips, Mr Clayton, Mrs Finch and Ms Stephenson
