We are delighted to welcome you to Year 1. We ensure a positive working environment where children try their best, work hard and strive to adhere to our school rules and values. We encourage children in Year 1 to begin to take greater responsibility for their belongings and organisation, focusing on developing their confidence and enabling them to become independent learners. We follow the school’s Behaviour System Policy which focuses on positive reinforcement, values rewards, marble rewards, individual rewards and sanctions. This policy can be found on our website (Home>Our school>Policies).
If you would like to speak with any of us, please contact the team on AskYear1@longfleet.poole.sch.uk , noting in the subject heading which teacher you would like to get in touch with. We will endeavour to get back to you as quickly as possible during the working week.
GO WILD for Reading is Longfleet's brilliant home reading reward scheme for pupils in Reception and Key Stage One. We expect all of our children to read frequently at home, colouring in 'WILD' letters and aiming to collect pin badges to celebrate their accomplishments this year. We encourage every child to develop a love of books and, as it is such an essential life skill, we expect all of our children to read a minimum of three times a week at home and to record these reads in their Reading Records. Thank you for your support with this.
In Year 1, children will be given spellings to learn weekly. These will be stuck in their green spelling books. Spellings will be given out and tested on Tuesdays.
The Maths homework will be 3 sessions of 15 minutes on Numbots each week. We will track the children's progress on Numbots and celebrate their achievements in class. We will also celebrate the ‘Superstar Collector’ (most stars earned), ‘Highest Earner of Coins’ and ‘Excellent Effort Award’ from each class.
As above, please continue to read with your child at home a minimum of 3 times a week and record this in their Reading Records.
