Our Routines

 

Each week children will receive homework. Homework will be sent out on Fridays and should be returned the following Wednesday. 

 

The children will take part in P.E. sessions on Mondays and Thursdays.

 

Reading

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. 

 

Writing

Developing our handwriting is very important in Year 1. There are lots of practice sheets online to help you to support your child to develop their handwriting skills. 

 

Maths

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 practice at home. Also children need to be able to write the numbers 1-20 as words.

Year 1's Curriculum Overview 

Following our phonics screening meeting held for parents (11/11/2021) please find the PowerPoint attached from the session which details the phonics screening test 2021. 

This is an example screening from 2018. The pass mark on this test was 32. Please note that this may change depending on the year the test is taken. 

For additional phonics support at home: you can read with your child, sounding out words they are unsure of and discussing the meaning of unfamiliar words. You can access previous screening tests from the GOV website. Also https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/freeIndex.htm has free game resources the children are used to playing in school.

By the end of Year 1, children are expected to be able to read and write these tricky words. Please practise these as much as possible at home. Thank you.
