This is to prepare them for their phonics screening test in the Summer term. In this test the children will be shown a word

whether it be a word (skip, star, shelf) or a non-word (uld, quik, hame) and be asked to say it correctly. Students are given 40 words to say and last year the threshold was 32 out of 40. This has been known to change and we are not given this mark till after the screening has been completed. In order to prepare your child for this screening we can give you old papers to practise with or there are websites online to have a look at.

Go to www.activelearnprimary.co.uk 2. Enter their login details and click Log in. Username: first name and first letter of surname, for example, Timmyb Password: changeme School Code: dajm General Information School Uniform and P.E. Kit Please make sure your child comes to school wearing the correct school uniform. In addition, please ensure that all items of clothing are clearly marked with your childs name. Long hair should be tied back. Your childs P.E. kit should remain in school at all times in case there is a change to the timetable. Clearly label your childs bag so that they can easily identify their own belongings! 60 identical bags are easily mixed up

We would like to encourage all children to bring in a named and reusable flask or bottle containing water. There is a labelled box inside the classroom where these are to be kept. Remember to take them home at least once a week to be washed. Attendance and Punctuality It is really important that children come to school on time every day. Regular attendance at school enables children to make the best of educational opportunities available to them. It is the government expectation that children should have at least 96% attendance. For this reason, holidays in term time will not be authorised. Absence Procedures If your child is absent please contact the school by 9am on the first and subsequent days of absence and give the reason for the absence. Behaviour At Darell we have three school rules: We follow instructions We keep our hands and feet and other objects to ourselves We are kind, polite and respectful to everyone

Behaviour is not an isolated action but rather a series of choices. We use the language of choice when teaching our children about behaviour. There is no bad behaviour rather poor choices are made and these need to be turned around so that the pupils make the right choice. Behaviour Rewards for good behaviour can be given individually or collectively as a group. At Darell our Home School Agreement and our Good to be Green Booklet make it clear to parents and pupils the rewards and sanctions that occur at school. Rewards include: Specific verbal praise Stickers and certificates Sharing our success as a class Teacher to tell carer/ parent how well the child has done Whole Class Reward Star Assembly sharing the success Tea with the Headteacher Certificate at the end of the half term and celebration activities for displaying Green Behaviour Behaviour

Unacceptable behaviour includes: deliberate rudeness or disobedience fighting or deliberately hurting another bullying or harassing others interfering with or damaging any school or individuals property All pupils need to know and understand that there are consequences for every action. We provide pupils with the opportunity to learn right from wrong, the consequences of inappropriate actions and the understanding that they are responsible for their behaviour. Consequences are outlined on the school website in the Behaviour Policy. Parent Helpers Throughout the year we need various helpers in and out of our classroom. We need volunteers for maths mountain and for our readers. We also need volunteers for our class trips in the coming terms. Please let us know if you are DBS checked and willing to help out for these activities. Questions???

What to look forward to Topics Autumn Term: Blast Off Spring Term: Castle, Knights and Dragons Summer Term: Out of my Window Trips Spring Term: Windsor Castle Summer Term: Kew Gardens Thank you We hope that your child has a happy and successful year in year 1. If there are any matters you wish to discuss with us, please do come and see us in the first instance. We will be in the playground after school and this is a good time to have a quick word, though if you have something lengthy to talk over please make an appointment for a longer chat. If you need to contact us, please do so via the school office or send them an email to [email protected] marked for our attention. Thank you for your time, we look forward to this year ahead with you. Olivia Suckling and Nayyer Ahmed
