Year 1 homework suggestions 

This page suggests some ways on how best to support your child at home. 
We will not be setting formal homework; however, we know extra support and work at home will help your child progress further in school. With this in mind, we have made a few resources that explain how we teach certain things in school which could be implemented and practised at home. 


In year 1, there are key skills that can be practised at home to improve your child’s maths fluency. These can be practised on paper, out loud on the journey to school, whilst eating breakfast, or even during bath time! Please look on the website for the ‘Quick maths’ document. 


Reading unlocks to door to everything. At this stage, your child will be relying heavily on their phonetic knowledge to support their reading. The main way to improve reading fluency is the practise, practise, practise. Reading after or before school each day will really benefit your child. 
With this in mind, we have created a video on how to get the most out of the RWI books at home.

Also, please date and sign the children’s bookmarks (these have been placed in the children’s book bags). Once they compete a row, they will receive a merit from their teacher. 

Spelling - 
We have recently changed the way we teach spelling across the whole school. We now use the Sounds and Syllables method. We have made a video on how to practise this at home.

We appreciate that home life is incredibly busy, so we thank you for your support!
