Responsibilites in Year 1 

As the children move into year one, we like to build their independence by making them responsible for their reading book and diary, changing their reading book, looking after their P.E kit, uniform and coats and handing in their homework.


Toast is available on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. If your child would like toast, they will need 25p for a piece of toast and 50p for toast and a small carton of juice. The money they bring in is their responsibility and they are encouraged to put their money in their tray on these mornings. The children will get fruit and milk provided by the school in the afternoons. Please provide your child with a small, healthy snack for morning break. Please provide your child with a named water bottle.



Year 1 P.E days are Wednesdays and Thursdays.
