Lincewood Primary School

Year 1 Key Information


P.E. Days

 Indoor - Thursday                       

 Outdoor - Friday

Year 1 children also have swimming lessons in our pool in the Autumn and Summer Term. This lesson replaces one of the P.E. lessons that week.

Details of what children need for their kit can be found on our school uniform section.


Homework Expectations

Homework is set on a Friday.

Homework is expected to be completed by the following Thursday.

Each week, children are expected to complete a piece of Maths and English homework, as well as topic-related tasks. Reading is a key priority in Year 1 and we encourage you to read with your child as regularly as possible, recording this in your child's Reading Record. There is an expectation that homework is done each week, however children are able to choose from the topic-related tasks in order to gain the necessary points for a certificate, and can complete their work by hand or online using Teams.

Key Assessments

The phonics screening check is taken by all children in Year 1, and is usually taken in June. It is designed to check how your child is progressing in phonics and will help to identify whether your child needs additional support at this stage so that they do not fall behind in this vital early reading skill.
