Year 1 Homework 13.9.17

Year 1 Homework (will be shared every Wednesday)

Spellings and Reading

Today your child has come home with a letter formation sheet and spellings. Please can your child practise their letter formation at home whenever they get chance, maybe they could have a go at writing out some of their spellings. This can be done in a fun  way, for example with paints, in sand, with different coloured pens. Some children have left their letter formation sheets behind, if your child has just let us know  and we will make sure they have one.  Spellings can also be learnt in a creative way, for example using magnetic letters, drawing pictures to match them.

Your child will change their reading book every week.  This will take place on a Tuesday or Wednesday (this is stated on your child’s individual letter).   Please can you make sure your child has their book on this day.


For maths, please practise counting in sets of real objects (up to 10). You could choose teddy bears, 1p coins, cars, dinosaurs or anything else. Try arranging them (for example, smallest to biggest)  and counting them in a line.


This week we will be starting our RE topic based on ‘Families’.  Please can your child bring in a photograph of their family. This will be returned in three weeks and will be used on our display.

Many thanks for your cooperation.

Mrs Dalton and Miss Locke
