Year 1 Homework Expectations:


Reading is the single most important thing you can do to support your child.

Your child will receive 3 books each week. Two phonics books for your child to read to you and a free choice of book corner book for you to share with your child. This is for you to enjoy with your child; you may need to read it to them.  

Please read every day and write in your reading record. Books will be changed throughout the week so please ensure they are always in your child's book bag. Reading their phoncs book more than once is recommended so that the children learn the words and commit them to memory.


. Maths Sheet (reflecting the work we are doing in class)


. Complete assigned Mathletics work online (at least 30 minutes a week but more ideal).


. Complete weekly Spelling Task - these are tasks not tests. 


Your children's education and wellbeing are our foremost priority; please do not hesitate to get in contact if you have any questions. You can organise a meeting through the office, drop me an email or talk to us at the class door for small matters.
