Year 1 Homework


  • The expectation is that you listen to your child read at least 3 times a week.  
  • We work with your child to ensure they are provided the appropriate levelled book.
  • We expect your child to read their book 3 times before we change it. This supports their comprehension and fluency. 


  • Spellings will be tested on Fridays. The list of spellings for each week will be sent out at the start of term. Please practise these during the week so that your child feels confident and prepared. 
  • You can find your child's spelling book in their book bag. Please keep it there for them to use in school.


  • Numbots is a free app that you can download that develops your child's number fluency. 
  • You can find your child's login in the front of their reading record. Please speak to us if you need any support using the app. 

Extra Activites

  • We also provide optional activities linked to our current units that you can complete with your children. You can find these on the back of the termly overview which is sent home with the spellings. 


PE is carried out on the following days:

  • Octopus Class - Tuesday and Thursday
  • Owl Class - Monday and Wednesday
  • Otter Class - Tuesday and Thursday 

Children need to come to school dressed in their PE kits on their PE days. As it gets colder, they should come to school wearing leggings or tracksuit bottoms.

Reading Morning

  • Year 1 reading morning takes place on Wednesdays.
  • This is a chance for you to come in and read with your child between 8.35-8.55.
