Class Rules

We follow the whole school non-negotiables:

  1. We always present our work at the highest standard, so we can be proud of it.
  2. We always correct our spelling.
  3. We know our success steps and always use them, this helps us to achieve our lesson objective.
  4. We always respond to our teachers marking as this helps us to improve.
  5. We use the grammar taught in our writing and can explain it using the correct language.


In Year 1, we have made our own class rules:

  • We always walk inside
  • We always try our best
  • Always tell the truth
  • Always be kind
  • Always ask before leaving the classroom
  • Use our inside voices
  • No hurting others
  • Share with others.


We always use our RICHER values:







Children who demonstrate good RICHER values are rewarded with dojos, special RICHER value stickers, and can even be chosen to be a RICHER value champion! 


The children have been learning about the characters who are based on the RICHER values.

Dynamite Dollars

Children will be given their Dynamite Dollars homework sheet at the start of each term. Please complete your chosen activities to earn 40 dollars. Your homework book will need to be brought back to school in the last week of each term so we can bank your dollars!



Year 1 children will also be given a piece of Read Write Inc homework every Friday. This is to help them revise the learning they have been doing in their Read Write Inc lessons during the week. Please complete this and return to school for the following Wednesday.


Reading book
Children are also required to read their reading book (and have their diary signed for this) four times a week to earn dollars. In Year 1, the children will change their reading book every Friday. They are therefore expected to read the same book several times over the weekend and during the week to improve their fluency and comprehension of the story.


Book Bingo

Children can also read books by the authors on their Book Bingo sheet and will earn the following rewards:

1 line = a certificate and a bookmark

2 lines = a book

Full house = a trip to the cinema at the end of the half term

Spring - 'Poles Apart'
