KIRF's (Key Instant Recall Facts)

KIRF’s are designed to support the development of the mental skills that underpin much of the maths work we complete in school. They are particularly useful when calculating, be it adding, subtracting, multiplying or dividing.

Things to remember..

Reading Books

Reading books can be changed daily, but only if an adult has signed to say that their child has read and has finished their reading book.

Children are to remember to put any books that need changing into the 'reading book changing box'.

If they are not put into the box in the morning they will  be changed on the following day.

Spelling Folders

Spelling folders will be sent home every Friday. The spellings should be learnt at home throughout the week for the test on the following Friday. Ideas for how to help learn spellings have been sent home and can be found below on this page.

Spelling folders will need to be handed back in every Friday, so new words can be added for the following week. (Hand in Friday – back out the same Friday).

Snack time

Snack time takes place at morning playtime. The snack consists of a vegetable or a piece of fruit. If your child does not like the snack provided by school, a piece of fruit or vegetable snack can be sent in from home. If your child receives school milk, this will also be consumed at snack time. If your child does not receive school milk, they can have a drink from the water bottle they have brought from home.


Water bottles

Children are allowed to bring water bottles into school. They will be kept in a box by the sink and the children will have access to them throughout the day.



In Year 1 we are improving our presentation by learning to write smaller, neater letters that are correctly formed. An alphabet strip can be seen below,  showing you how we form the letters when writing.



P.E. days are Tuesday & Thursday. Children should have their full PE kits in school at all times - as per letter attached.
