Wesley Methodist Primary School Forth Road, Manchester


Welcome to Year 1/2O!

The staff working will your child/children this year are: Miss Oldham (class teacher), Mrs Crompton (Mon-Weds) and Mrs Hampson (Thurs+Fri).

Here are a few important details to remember:

P.E - Our P.E days this half term are Monday and Thursday. Please ensure children have a full P.E kit ready in school. This should stay in school and will be sent home for washing at the end of each half term. A warmer PE kit is recommended this half term in case  of any outdoor sessions.

Reading - A reading book will be sent home every day. Please try to read a little bit with your child each night and sign their reading diary so we can see they have read. If finished, reading books will be changed on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Your child will also have a set of high frequency words inside their reading diaries which they are expected to learn to read and spell, once I have assessed your child as confident on these words they will receive a new set to learn. I also highly recommend the use of 'Bug Club' which is an online reading resource which the school subscribes to. Please see your child's log in card for this in the front of their reading diary. Once logged in to Bug Club you will find many more texts set at your child's reading level to share at home. 

Homework - Homework is optional in KS1 therefore there will be no consequences for children who do not return homework set. However, children may receive dojos for a good effort in a particular homework task. A short homework task may be sent home on a Friday or a text message will be sent home stating a page in the children's numicon homework book which relates to children's learning in class. 

Spellings - Spelling books will come home with children on a Monday or Tuesday with a set of 8-10 spellings to learn for a test on the following Monday. These spellings will relate to the phonemes and tricky words learnt that week in phonics. It is important children return their spelling books to school on Mondays as this is where they will complete their test. Please note that Y2 children may be asked to write a sentence including each spelling word, this is to ensure correct application of the words learnt.

Gold Award Winners - The child who receives the Gold Award in our celebration assembly on a Friday will take home our class bear. Please allow the bear to join in your fun over the weekend and your child can stick in some photos, draw some pictures and write about what they have been up to! Please ensure this is returned to school on the following Monday so that we can share his adventures.

Art - If possible, please send your child to school with a large unwanted adult t-shirt for use during messy Art lessons.
