Forest Schools

Wednesday from 8th May.


Please make sure that your child has some warm clothes in school including;

jogging bottoms, pair of socks a jumper and a pair of wellies. 


Please let us know if you need help to provide these clothes.






PE days are every Monday in Year 1.


Please make sure that your child has their named PE kit in school every day.


Spellings will be sent home in the reading diaries each Friday and spelling tests will be held on Thursday's. Please help your child to practise reading and spelling these words. Try to make                                           this as interesting as possible!


Here are some ideas to get you started, but there are many more things that you  and your child could do!

  • Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check
    • ¬†Look- carefully at the shape of the words, look for 'tricky' parts in the word, trace over the shape of the letters with your finger, find words within the words (e.g. 'and' in¬†'hand')
    • Say- say the word and the letters in the word over and over again. Use a silly voice to help remember the 'tricky' letters.
    • Cover- cover up the word.
    • Write- write the word- without looking!
    • Check- have a look to see how you did. If you got part of the word wrong, focus on that part next time.
  • Write the words out on to scraps of paper and display around the home where children can see them.
  • Cut out letters from newspapers and magazines and stick them onto paper to make the spelling words.
  • Write each word out over and over again¬†in different colours.
  • Practise typing out the words on a keyboard.
  • Write each word in fancy writing- bubble writing, curly writing, block writing etc.
  • Write out the words in alphabetical order.
  • Write the words out in dots and then join the dots in a different colour.


 New spellings will be put in reading diaries every Friday.
