Year 1 – Learning at Home
To support at home, please listen to your child reading at least three times per week. Please also practice the spellings sent home, as well as some ‘maths recall facts’. Additional, optional, project-based homework can be found on the term’s curriculum map. If completed, children will be able to share this with staff and their classmates in school during the term.
Reading: Children have access to library books to borrow from school. These will be sent out on a Wednesday and can be returned to school to be changed. Please take the time to share these books with your child, as their intention is to help promote a love of reading with the children.
Your child now has a paper-based Reading Record. Please update this with your reading at home. You may also wish to record your child reading aloud and to upload it on SeeSaw to share with their class teacher.
Spelling: Below are the common exception words for KS1. Exception words are words in which the English spelling code works in an unusual or uncommon way. Children would really benefit from practising reading and spelling these words frequently at home.
