We strongly recommend that children leave their named PE and Forest School kits in school and take them home for a wash at the end of each half term. Our PE and Forest School sessions are weather dependent and so having them in school means that the children won't miss out should we need to make last minute changes!
Please make sure that your child has their book bag, home-school book and reading books in school everyday. 



You can help your child at home to make maximum progress in Year 1 by listening to them read regularly. Throughout Year 1, we hope that your child's knowledge of phonics will increase dramatically and so it's vital that they get as much opportunity to practise as possible. Please make a note of any reading which you do at home in your child's home-school book and make sure that they have their book bag, home-school book and school reading book with them in school each day.


Spellings will be tested every Friday. The sounds in the spellings correspond to those which we will have been practising in class during our phonics sessions, however, it's often useful if the children have had an opportunity to practise them at home too.

Here are the spellings which the children need to be practising this half term:


Maths challenges will be stuck into your child's home-school books. Whilst we'll be working on them in school, it'd be great if you could also get practising at home. Children will move through these at their own speed.

This gives an overview of the Maths challenges which we aim to cover this year:

Anything else?

Other pieces of stand alone homework may be set to suit a particular topic or area of the curriculum which we're covering at that time. If you wish to support your child further at home, then log on to their School 360 account where there are plenty of resources for you to explore together.
