Our Timetables

Year 1 timetable

Routines and Expectations

Drop off and Pick up. In the mornings you drop your child at the school gate anytime between 8.35am and 8.55am. They make their own way into the classrooms via the patio doors. Year 1 have Early Morning Work and registration whilst the children make their way into class. Any child arriving after 9am is late. At the end of the day the gates are unlocked at 3.10pm, parents come into the playground and collect their children from the classroom patio doors; learning time ends at 3.20pm, doors will open after this time.  

Daily Reading. Reading at home every day for at least 15 minutes is an absolute expectation in Year 1. The children can read with you, to you, by themselves or with a sibling, the most important element is that you ask your child questions about what they have read to check their comprehension. Children need to bring their book bags into school daily where home reading records are checked. 

PE days. Remember children come to school wearing their PE kit. Year 1's PE days in the Summer term are:

1ST - Monday and Friday
1CL, 1SM and 1BP - Thursday and Friday

Homework. Teachers send children home with homework every Friday and it is always due in on the following Wednesday. The homework will alternate between Maths (Mathletics) and English. The children also have weekly spelling which can be found in their reading record and they are tested every week (usually on Tuesdays).
