In Year 1, we are:


We don’t give up and we try our hardest even during challenging times, whether that is academic or emotional. 


We learn through our all senses and explore the world around us independently and as a class. 


We use our imagination to learn more about the world around us. We learn through stories and role play which we really enjoy. 


We are kind to others and work as a team to achieve our best. 

Homework in Year 1

In Year 1 we set the following homework to help the children embed their school learning at home.

We will be setting spellings each week. The spellings will be based upon the sound or spelling pattern we are learning that week, sheets will be sent home each Thursday.

We will alternate activities with Maths one week and English the next. These tasks will be stuck into your child’s Home Work book and also uploaded to the Google classroom every Thursday. The homework is due in on Tuesday mornings, please ensure your child brings their book to school with them even if they have not yet completed their homework. We will also be setting activities on the Mathletics Website. Mathletics log in information is stuck in the front of the Home Work book.

In Year 1 we want to develop a love of reading. We expect the children to read at home at least three times a week and will change their books every Friday. Please ensure your child brings their book to school every day, we will be listening to them read individually and as a group throughout the week. In order for the children to develop a greater understanding of the texts they read we expect each book to be read through several times before we will change it. This will help the children to embed their comprehension skills as well as their ability to decode and read the text. We will reward the children who read at least three times a week with a house point, these will be given out every Friday.
