Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!

Year 1

Autumn Term 2019


Welcome to a new school year!  Year 1 is a very important milestone in your child’s learning as they move gradually into more formal learning, and I am delighted to have the privilege of teaching them this year. They have come into their new class full of confidence and enthusiasm to learn, and they have all made an excellent start.


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 spelling games to play on Spelling Shed which are linked to our Read Write Inc. phonics.
  • Maths A Maths based homework task will be sent home later in the year.
