Welcome to Year 1

To support your child with their phonics at home, you will find some useful files and links attached to this page. These can be referred to whilst reading together or during writing activities. 



We will be having PE on a Monday (outside) and Thursday (inside). This term we will be focusing on using our feet to control footballs and developing a dance inspired by the Zoo. 



For this half term we will be focusing on place value and addition and subtraction within 20. 



Please record any home time reads in your child's reading diary. This can be a story, a recipe, a comic or phonics practice. You must bring it to school every day. It also contains helpful phonics pages. Children will change the book once a week, they need to have read the book 4 times (at home and at school) to be able to change it. 

Many of our children have a year 6 reading buddy. They love sharing stories together :) 



We are looking to start homework before the February Half term. Watch this space! 

Maths and English homework will alternate weekly.



The children will now be beginning to bring spellings home. They will be no more than 5 words to start with. Please note there will not be a weekly test but lots of activities to allow the children to develop their retainment. Please support this learning at home. 


Phonics games! To help the children prepare for the phonics screen check in June have a go at a few games :)

There's a fab alien game that has a mario vibe!

Lots of flash card options

Though a subscription is needed for a few of the games, there are some actvities the children are familiar with.
