Dear Parents, Carers and children,

Mr Manning and Miss Cafferty would like to welcome you all to Year 1. We are all looking forward to the new academic year and we can not wait to explore some exciting and fun topics with you. We are also looking forward to working in partnership with the adults to support every child.

All the teaching staff at Weston Primary School are committed to providing every child with the opportunities and support they need to succeed. It is our aim in Year 1 that every child will meet the 'Standard' of the Year 1 curriculum and pass the 'Phonics Screening check' in June 2019. However, this can not be done without the full support of all parents / carers. 

In Year 1 we encourage the children to think, live and work with greater independence. Each child will be encouraged to take care of their own personal belongings which include coats, hats, scarfs, gloves, jumpers, school bags, PE kits and snack money. Please support this at home by encouraging them to empty and fill their book bag independently and remind them in the morning if there is something that needs handing in such as homework or reply slips.  

We ask that you please label your child's clothing with either their initials or full name, as this will make it easier to identify and return clothing to the rightful owner when items are found.

Reading Books

The children will be responsible when changing their reading books. With some initial support at first, they will each choose two books that they have not read from the colour band section and then place their books, along with their 'reading records' in their school bags ready to be taken home. While the children change their books, the teachers will look through as many 'reading records' as possible to check when the child has read at home and also to see any comments left by the parent / carer who has read with them. Teaching staff will only write in a child's 'reading record' when a guided reading session has taken place in class. However your child will be reading different material in school daily.​​​
