    We are a mixed Reception and Year 1 class. 


    Home learning

    We encourage you to read with and to your child on a regular basis.



    PE days

    Each week PE will be on a Tuesday and a Thursday. Please keep PE kit in school all week as we sometimes change the days we do it.


    Snack time

    We have free fruit and vegetables for the children but if you would like to send more in please do.



    Please support your child by hearing them read daily and date and write a comment in their reading record book.  It is also important to read to your child so that they develop a love of books and reading.  


    Sound Books

    Reception children will bring home a sound book which will be updated weekly.  Please share this with them and help them to quickly recognise the sounds in there.  When they can recognise them encourage them to learn to write them.



    Year 1 have a weekly spelling test on a Friday.  We look at the sounds in the spellings in our daily phonics session, but please practice at home too


    Please see our class page to see all the exciting things we have been doing and do not hesitate to come in and ask anything you are unsure of.






    At Thrupp, we have generated a list of key skills for each year group. These are objectives from the National Curriculum which we feel are essential for your child to achieve before they move on with their learning. Below are Non-Negotiables for Maths, Reading and Writing for Year 1.

    Reception Children Follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. Please see the Development Matters document below to see what we use to help us plan for the children and use to assess where they are. The Government expectation is that all children achieve the Early Learning Goals by the end of their Reception year.
