Above is our regular class timetable for Y1N. Please note that 'Creative curriculum' includes subjects - Topic, art, DT, P.E, R.E, PSHE.
Each week we have some homework to do. This is usually a piece of maths, based on the work we have done in class that week; and a piece of phonics homework. We have to practise the spellings and sometimes write sentences.
Homework needs to be handed in by Wednesday.
Reading is so important in Year 1, we would love it if you could try to read at home at least 3 times a week. Children can read their own books from home too. Just let us know you have read at home by writing in your child's planner.
We have a cursive handwriting policy and children learn to write in this style. There are lots of practise sheets online for cursive handwriting, but if you can not find them, please ask a Year 1 member of staff.
A key target for year 1 children is to be able to count forwards and backwards to 100 from any given number, so lots of counting practise at home. Also children need to be able to write the numbers 1-20 as words.
Our current topic is "When I grow up I want to be".

Above is a powerpoint I have created which gives children a variety of words to segment and blend, including the digraphs we have found most tricky.
