Expectations for Year One
We have high expectations for all of the children in Year 1.
We wish for children to be the very best they can be
We expect all children to respect the Catholic ethos of the school.
We hope that children will take every opportunity given to them to develop to reach their full potential
We expect for behaviour to be of the highest standard, with a consideration for others inside and outside the classroom
We expect all children to come to school ready to learn, this includes having the correct school uniform, including correct footwear, which is to be labelled. Children are to have both indoor and outdoor P.E kits which are left in school or brought in on the correct days.
Most of all we expect the children to be willing to learn and grow as individuals, working to better themselves both academically and personally.
Learning in Year One
• Please see Year 1’s newsletter for curriculum and dates for the diary. Click here to view the letters page.
Your child will be set homework weekly. The homework will be given out on Friday and is due in on Wednesday unless otherwise stated. Aside from spelling and maths which will start from the end of October, the children will have a project to complete at home related to their learning area. This task will be given to the children with information about how it could be completed on the first week of each Term. Please see the All Souls Homework Policy for further information.
Children should be reading every day at home in addition to any other tasks.
It is the school’s requirement that your child spend at least 15 minutes reading every day at home. Please try to hear your child read as often as possible, at least 4 times a week, to develop their speaking and listening skills. We will try to hear every child read at least once a week and more if possible. Reading is essential to many areas of the curriculum. The reading record must be filled in and signed by an adult. The reading record and their reading book must be brought in daily as they may be heard read at any time.
