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 every day if possible (minimum 3 times a week). The children will read in school and this is when their books will be changed. Library will be once a week. Please make sure your child has their book bag and reading and library book each day. To reduce risks of Covid19 we are currently asking parents to upload their child's reading record each week to Class Dojo so we can award points for reading at home. 



Each week your child will be given five common exception word to practice at home. Please work with your child at home to read and write these words. We will check these with your child in class. These will be on Class Dojo weekly and points award for evidence of practicing.



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. 


Purple Mash

The children have all been given a log-in and password for the online learning platform Purple Mash. Occasionally specific homework tasks will be set to be completed but the children will also be given time in class to access this in case they do not have access at home. If you have any concerns over this please come and speak to me. 


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


Thank you.
