Welcome to Lilac

Lilac Class Information


PE Day


Lilac PE is on Thursday, please ensure that your child comes into school in their PE kit with hair tied back and ear-rings taken out. 


Reading Books


Our reading expectations are that the children should be reading at least 4 times a week and have their reading records signed. This is to help the children build up their reading stability, build up their confidence of segmenting and blending new sounds and also to develop a love of reading. Children have their reading records checked every day in school so that we can closely monitor home reading and will get 5 dojos for meeting their reading target; we fully understand that there are things that can come up during the week that can’t be helped. Please let the class teacher know if you are having any issues.




Year 1 homework goes out on Fridays and is to be returned by the following Wednesday. Please check bookbags for homework. Year 1 have been given a yellow homework book. Within this is a homework menu. The children get to choose one piece of work to complete each week. Please return the homework by the following Wednesday.


Reception Homework will also go out on Fridays in the form of a phonics booklet. This will recap the weeks learning and does not need to be returned to school. 





Year 1 spellings go out on Friday and will be tested the following Friday. 

 Please select the file which corresponds with the date the spellings went out. 






In Year 1  we are focusing on the book 'Surprising Sharks'. We will be writing our own fact file and focusing on using question marks.




In Reception, our topic this term is 'Changes' our key text is 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar'.
