One Way System Drop Off

  • Please plan your journey to arrive during your time slot as opposed to before it.
  • There will be a queuing system using the pathways next to the school car park and the pavements on Jolliffe Avenue. This will be marshalled by Mr Heawood.
  • The school entrance will be via the KS2 gate.
  • Follow the one-way system and an adult will be on the playground to direct your child to the correct classroom (parents to say goodbye on the playground not at the classroom door) i.e. if you imagine a conveyor belt going around the school, the pupils will get off close to their classroom entrance and parents will continue walking.
  • The school exit will be via the YR/KS1 gate.
  • Only one adult per child(ren) please.

 

One Way System Pick Up

  • Please plan your journey to arrive during your time slot as opposed to before it.
  • There will be a queuing system using the pathways next to the school car park and the pavements on Jolliffe Avenue. This will be marshalled by Mr Heawood.
  • The school entrance will be via the KS2 gate.
  • Follow the one-way system and the teacher will be on the playground with the class lined up to handover your son or daughter to you i.e. if you imagine a conveyor belt going around the school, the pupils will get on as their parent walks past the class line.
  • For the first few days we will require your patience as your son or daughter’s new class teacher gets to know which child belongs to which parent.
  • The school exit will be via the YR/KS1 gate.
  • Only one adult per child(ren) please.

Communication with the Class Teacher

 

Due to the new dropping off and collecting system, parents will not be able to stop and talk to the class teacher at either drop off or pick up. Therefore, please take note of the following information:

  • If someone different is picking up your son or daughter, you must contact the school office BEFORE 2.45pm so this message can be passed on in good time.
  • If you have a question or query for the class teacher, please email our ASK email address (AskYear1@longfleet.poole.sch.uk) and we will respond within 48hrs by email or phone. Alternatively, please use your son or daughter's white Home School Link Book to pass information over to the class teacher.

Important Information for Year 1 Parents

 

  • Please read with your child at least 3 times a week and record each read in their Reading Record Book. We have a significant focus on reading in Year 1 and would really value your support with this at home. For more information, see our 'GO WILD' section
  • Your child must have their book bag and Reading Record in school every day (please regularly check for letters, etc)
  • Reading books will be changed and spellings will be handed out and tested every Friday. Please make sure your child has everything they need in their book bag

 

  • All children in Year 1 come into school in PE kit on Mondays. Earrings must not be worn on Mondays for the children’s safety in PE lessons
  • Please ensure that all belongings are clearly labelled, especially jumpers, PE bags, book bags, lunch boxes and water bottles
  • During the rest of the week, the pupils will have regular ‘active’ sessions so please bear this in mind when selecting any new school shoes as they will need to be able to move comfortably in them. As PE will be predominantly based outside (even in damp conditions) it might be worth the children having a spare PE kit in school in case they need to get changed due to getting wet. The children will need a pair of trainers in school at all times so they can put these on quickly for 'active' activities if school shoes are not appropriate for a particular activity e.g. running around the field.

 

  • We will be sending out weekly ‘Marvellous Me’ notifications to keep in touch about various things going on in our year group. Please sign up if you haven’t already (see the school office) and use the notifications to engage with your child about their week at school

 

  • Regularly ask your children how they have shown the school values of being aspirational, resilient, kind and wise. We welcome any photos, drawings or notes of how your child has shown these values at home as well

Meet the Monsters

 

GO WILD for Reading is Longfleet's brilliant home reading reward scheme for pupils in Reception and Key Stage One. 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. Thank you for your support with this. 

Saying the Phonics Sounds Correctly

Here is a useful video clip showing the correct pronounciation of phonemes (sound).
(This video pronounces the /w/ phoneme as 'wuh' - we teach the children 'wwww' without the 'uh' part!)
