Hello and welcome to Base 8!
We are Year 1 and Year 2 children. Our teacher is Miss Watton.
The requirement in Key Stage 1 is that your child should read at home at least 4 times a week. This needs to be evidenced in their Reading Diary by a parent or carer.
If your child reads 4 times a week and this is recorded in their Reading Diary, they will receive a raffle ticket for the 'Big Book Draw' during Friday assembly. Your child needs to read their school reading book at least once to be eligible.
Homework in Key Stage 1 consists of weekly spellings and times tables. Homework will be sent out on a Friday to be completed and returned to school by the following Wednesday.
You can support your child at home by practising the 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables and number bonds to 10 and 20. Also, practise reading and spelling the Year 1 and 2 Common Exception words.
P.E. kits need to be in school every day. Please bring your kit in on Monday morning and it will stay in school until Friday afternoon. The school P.E. kit consists of a plain, white t-shirt, navy blue or black shorts/joggers and plimsolls/white trainers. Please no football kits to be used in school or for after school clubs.
Fruit and water bottles
A piece of fresh fruit will be provided by the school every day. You may send an additional healthy snack if you wish.
Your child needs a water bottle with fresh water in school every day. This needs to be changed every day.
