Times Tables

 

By the end of Year 1, pupils should know their 2x, x5 and x10 tables confidently. Please help your child to practise their times tables at home. These will be tested each week.

The School Day

Start of the day

The playground gates open at 8.45am and children may come onto the playground. When the bell goes at 8.55am, children need to line up with their class, ready to be collected by their class teacher.

Break time

Children are given a fruit/vegetable snack to eat at morning break.

Alternatively children may bring in a healthy snack to eat at morning break. Milk is available for those who have signed up for it.

Lunch

Children in Year 1 are eligible for a free school meal which is funded by the Government.

Children can bring a packed lunch to school or sign up for a hot meal provided by Farm Kitchen. Please contact our school office for more information on how to sign up for school lunches. 

End of the day

The school day finishes at 3.15pm. The teachers bring their class down to the playground to meet parents/carers. Please ensure your child is collected promptly. Children who are not collected on time will be taken to the School Office to wait.

Supporting Your Child At Home

You will find useful information and resources, including our Parent Pocket Guides to help support your child at home on our curriculum pages.

Parents Meeting Teachers

Parents' Evenings are held in the Advent and Lent terms - a 10 minute appointment with your child's teacher to discuss progress. At other times, please feel free to come and see us if you have any concerns or worries about your child at school. 

For anything further, an appointment can be made to discuss your concerns in more depth.

We want parents to feel welcome in our school. Please see your child’s teacher if you would like to help, for example, by accompanying classes on outings.

Birthdays


St Norbert’s is a 'Healthy School' and, as such, we would prefer not to share sweets, chocolate or cakes brought into the classroom. This includes birthday cakes.

If you wish, you can send in a plate of fruit or donate a book to your child’s class and write a birthday message inside. (It is always best to check the suitability of a particular book, with the class teacher, before you purchase it.)
