Welcome to Year 1 & 2, Yellow Class at Yarmouth Primary

Dear Parents/Carers

Welcome to Yellow class. We are really looking forward to working with you and your child this year.

Staff In Yellow Class, the staff team are Mrs Hedley (Class teacher) and Miss Bristow. (LSA)

We hope that this will be a fun and happy year with us.

Please see below for key information.

AM & PM Routines

Morning routines – The children will be greeted in the playground at 8. 50am by a member of our class team. Registration is completed upon entering the classroom at 9.00am. Should you wish your child to attend morning club, this is available from 8am.

End of day – At the end of the school day (2.45pm), the children will be taken to the gate in the playground for collection. If someone is collecting your child for you, please make sure you have notified the office or we will not be able to let your child leave with them.

Uniform

Uniform – We ask that you regularly check that all clothing is clearly named, especially jumpers and coats, including their PE kit, and that all children are provided with a coat as we like to get the children out at playtime everyday, even in light rain, and a hat in hot weather.

PE & Outdoor Learning

PE – We will be doing PE Tuesday morning and Friday morning. Please can you ensure your child has their full PE kit in school every day in case it is needed. For health and safety requirements, please ensure your child can either remove their earrings, or provide them with surgical tape to cover them. If your child has long hair, it should be tied back and out of their face.

Outdoor Learning – This will also be on a Tuesday and Friday morning. Correct clothing will be needed for this. (Wet weather gear).

Food & Drink

Drinks – We recommend that your child brings in a named water bottle to drink throughout the day. They will be fully accessible in the classroom at all times.

Snacks – The children can have a piece of fruit after break at 10:30. Key Stage One are given a free piece of fruit or vegetable as part of the government’s scheme, or they are welcome to bring a piece of fruit or a healthy snack from home.

Lunchboxes – These are stored on a shelf in the classroom.

Toys & Belongings

Toys/Belongings – Please can you ensure that your child does not bring in any toys to school at the current time. We will provide writing equipment but if your child wants to bring in their own pencil case, they will need to leave it at school.

Reading

Reading – This is a vital part of your child’s learning. We will hear your child read in groups or individually every week. To support your child, we ask that you listen to them read as often as possible at home and question them on the text. Please record every time you listen to your child read, or they read to themselves, in their reading record.

Homework

Homework – Each half term, your child will be sent home with an optional topic related homework task. Maths and Spellings will be sent home weekly in a Homework book.
