Welcome to ROCKING Robins!
Dear Parents / Carers,
I would very much like to welcome you to the Year 1 class page. In this part of our website you will find information about our topics for each term and some information about life in Year 1.
I very much look forward to working with you this year! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Your child will make a FAB member of the ROCKING Robins team!
Things To Remember...
P.E days are Tuesday and Firday so please ensure your child brings in their school P.E. Kit.
Children will need a water bottle that has been clearly labelled with their names.
All uniform should also be clearly labelled with the child's name.
Bookbags/ Bags will be needed daily. They will be kept on the child's peg in the cloakroom area outside the classroom.
Fruit is available daily but feel free to send your child in with a healthy snack if they prefer their own.
Homework will be handed out out on a Friday and will need to be returned on a Tuesday to be marked.
Spellings / handwriting will be stuck in books so please encourage your child to complete these too.
A BUGCLUB book will be allocated to your child and will be sent home every Friday. Please send this back into school by Tuesday so we can allocate another one to them. Also, please sign the log and add in any additional comments. The expectation is that your child reads their BUGCLUB book every week. We will increase this as the term progresses.
BUGCLUB, Phonics Hero and Purple Mash logins are in the front of your child's homework book.
I use MARV Me to praise your child and send key messages home so please check daily. If you need help logging back onto this again please ask the office and we'll supply the details
