Welcome to Year 1!

Year 1

Spring Term 2020


Welcome to Year 1! Year 1 is a very important milestone in your child’s learning as they move gradually into more formal learning, and I am delighted with the progress they have made so far this academic year.


Homework in Year 1

  • Reading We ask you to aim to read with your child daily, for around 10 minutes.  Please make a note in their reading record  of whether or not they have completed their book, or the page number that they have reached.  Please aim to read each book twice with your child as this helps them to build their confidence and fluency. Please send your child’s reading record book and reading book into school daily, as we need them in class.  Reading books will be changed on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
  • Spelling Spellings will be sent home on Friday. These spellings are based on the sounds that we have been learning in school and a couple of common exception words or red words. There will be an informal spelling 'quiz' on a Friday. There are also new spelling games to play on Spelling Shed which are linked to our Read Write Inc. phonics.
  • Maths Please can your child continue to practise their number bonds to 10 and then to 20 using the 'hit the button' game which can be found online or the app can be downloaded onto a tablet or an i-Pad. Please also practise counting in 2s, 5s and 10s using a hundred square.
