How you can help your child at home:

Please click here to see how you can help your child at home.

Play games using the following websites:



Sing counting songs, can your child count to 100, forwards and backwards?

Can your child write numbers 1-100? Are they formed the correct way?

Encourage your child to read. Reading absolutely anything can really help your child with understanding of new words and within their writing.

If you would like any support or help with activities to do at home then please do not hesitate to ask me.

Our PE days are on a Tuesday and a Thursday; please make sure your child has suitable indoor and outdoor clothes and shoes that are clearly labelled. Thank you. 


Year 1 children have a spelling test every Friday.

Please encourage your child to practise their spellings at home. Thank you.The year 1 phonics check is in June this year.

If you would like further help, support or additional practise papers then please let me know. Thank you.                             

Homework is sent home each Friday and is expected to be returned by the following Thursday. However, children that hand this in on a Monday will gain 10 house points.

Reading books are changed every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Each time a child reads at home they receive a raffle ticket. So if your child reads three times at home, they will get 3 raffle tickets. Then on a Friday, a raffle ticket is drawn and that child wins a prize.
