Phonics Check homework: You will receive practice materials for your child to read with you at home!

Reading:  Each child will receive a reading book which must be read daily and signed each time by an adult. Reading books will be provided based on reading levels from Accelerated Reader, which tests the children based on their reading and comprehension of every story they read. Your child’s test scores will be recorded in their reading journals and a new book will be given based on test scores.

Spelling: Children will be given a spelling list every MONDAY. The pupils will have a spelling test on Fridays and incorrect spellings will be identified to parents so that further work can be done on them at home. Children will write their spellings into their own reading journals now to further promote their independence.


Number bond tests: Children will also be tested weekly on their numberbonds to 10 and 20 to check for fast mental calculation and accuracy within adding and taking away.

Dip and Do: Additional homework will be available via the school website and in our Year 1 homework books, where the children can select and complete a task from a range of different challenges. We would love to sign homework books when the challenge is completed so please bring them in for us! Work will be displayed in school and celebrated!
