Homework in Year 1


We are incredibly grateful for all the support at home.  Just a short amount of time each day supporting your child with reading, spelling and homework makes a huge difference to their confidence and understanding.  Please speak to a member of the Year 1 if you have any questions regarding homework in Year 1.


Children will receive alternative Maths or English homework. These will go out every Friday and due in the following Wednesday in order for it to be checked.  Children need to be completing these as independently as possible, with help if required.


One Big Cat Collins Reading book will be sent home every Wednesday.  Please sign the children’s reading record to acknowledge reading has been completed at home so staff can monitor progress and identify any additional support that may be required.  In addition the children will choose a 'sharing for pleasure' book from our school/classroom library to share together at home.


Phonics - Little Wandle Weekly Overview - On Monday we will send home an overview of our Little Wandle Phonics programme.  We encourage the children to practise these at home throughout the week as the impact of regular practise is hugely beneficial. 


Spellings - At the start of each half term we will provide a list of spellings to focus on each week including phonetically decodable spellings as well as tricky words.  All of these words will feature throughout the week during our daily phonics lessons.  On Friday there will be an informal check in school.
