General Information 

PE kits

Please make sure that your child has a PE kit in school at all times. We do PE every Wednesday afternoon in the hall and will move to outside in the warmer months, please ensure their clothes and plimsolls are labelled. 

Reading at Home

Please read with your child as often as possible. Children who read at home will get a chance to take the class teddy, Darren the Dragon home. The children will read in school and this is when their books will be changed. Library is on a Wednesday afternoon. 


Please read at home with your child and practice their high frequency words (HFW) which are in their reading records, we check these with the children when they read with us at school. Spellings are sent home each week and spelling test is on a Friday morning. Other homework tasks may be sent home throughout the year. 


We do have a Grassmoor Primary School Facebook group and we would love you all to join! We look forward to seeing you there!!

Class Dojo

 We are using Class Dojo to reward the children for their efforts in school and to keep parents up to date with the happenings in Year 1. To access this you will need to download the app for phones or tablets and ask your child's class teacher for their code. You will be able to see your child's points and what we have been up to on the Class Story page. 

Finally, if you have any concerns or would just like a chat, please feel free to come and see us!


Thank you.


Miss Wholey & Mrs Teare
