Parents/Carers of children in Year 1

Y1 Homework Arrangements

 

Children in Year 1 are asked to complete simple homework tasks.

Reading

Children usually bring home a new book every other day. We ask you to spend some time each day reading with your child, and talking about the books they bring home.

  • The purple reading record contains details of the banded books brought home. You should sign this daily, after you have read with your child, and comment on their reading progress.

  • Banded books are changed on every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

  • Please look at Reading Record books to see which day your child’s Phonics book will be changed.

  • Details of library books and their return dates will be confirmed at a later date.

  • Please, ensure your child brings all of their books with them to school every day.

     

Other homework

Other homework is usually set on a Thursday and should be completed and returned on the following Wednesday. A homework folder has been given to your child. The folder contains:

  • A homework cover page, explaining the tasks set. Please read this carefully. When each task has been completed, please sign in the space beside the task. There is a space for comments at the bottom.

  • Materials needed to complete the tasks.

     

Tasks set may include:

  • Sounds and/or high frequency words to learn to read.

  • Spellings to practise.

  • A maths activity to reinforce learning in school.

  • Other tasks related to topic work.
