Homework in Year 1
We encourage all children to read at home daily and a note to be written in their reading record book. If the school book has been completed then please read and share any other books or comics that you have at home. These can also be record in the reading record and count towards the number of daily reads. School books will be changed on Monday and Thursday.
Every Friday we will send home a phonics book with the sounds we have learnt during the week.
Please practise these with your child at home and see if they can come up with any other words that have these sounds in. Please ensure that the phonics books are returned by Thursday the following week so new sounds can be given.
We suggest working on Numbots for 15 minutes a week, however, you can do more should you wish. Specific work isn't set on Numbots, Children will work through the activities at their own pace. This is an online maths game that can be accesses on tablets, ipads and desktops. Log-ins will be sent out to all children in the first week of Year 1.
