Year 1

Y1 children have impressed us so much with their kindness and their positive attitudes to learning. 

Children can change their own reading books once they have read it. The class teacher will guide them towards the correct colour basket. Book bags should be brought into school every day along with their reading record.

What do I need to know about homework and reading?

  • Children should be reading 5 times a week and this should be documented in the child’s reading record.
  • Reading Eggs should be used for one of the reads each week. You will find these login details on the login card you received in September. This read should also be noted in the reading record.
  • We will check how many reads the children have completed each week. We will collect the records and check them on a Thursday. Please remember to bring your reading record into school every day in your book bag.
  • Spellings are tested every week (on a Friday). Please ensure you are practising these at home during the week.

Many thanks for your support. 


Your homework this week is to innovate a story. 

This is set for you on Google Classroom. 


Please access our spellings practise sheet below (you do not need to print this or submit this).


Your child will be tested on these next Friday (3rd December 2021). 

Spellings – 26.11.21


We would also like you to practise your Phonics. This week our focus sounds have been ‘ee’ and ‘ea’ and ‘y’

Please use the document below to practise recognising and reading our sounds of the week. Then, practise reading words containing our sounds. Can you decide which words are real words and which ones are alien words?
