We use a range of rewards throughout Year One from stickers, star of the day, star of the week, dojo points and weekly Celebration Certificates which are presented in our Celebration Assemblies. We use school coms to communicate with parents.

In Year One, the children will take a Phonics Screening assessment in June. The children will complete a reading test to show how they blend phonemes together to create real and nonsense words.  An evening parent information meeting will be held to provide more information about this. We follow the Letters and Sounds scheme, to develop phonics, reading and writing skills. More information about Letters and Sounds and phonics can be viewed in the following links:

Throughout the year, parents will be invited to share their children's achievements in class, join in with the children’s experiences and come on school trips and local visits if able to volunteer some time.
