What does our week look like?

In Year 1 it is important that we read daily and we change our reading books every morning. We have handwriting and maths homework set every week which is to be handed in by Friday. On a Monday we are also set spellings which we learn ready to be tested each Friday.

We have a fantastic library at St. Peter’s which we visit weekly and have the chance to choose our own books to borrow for the week.
