Helping at Home
During Autumn 1, Year 1 are encouraging children to read as much as they possibly can. This can be in whatever format; decodable reading books, banded reading books, home books, picture books, magazines, recipes, street signs - anything. We want our children to LOVE reading and feel confident doing so!
Can you notice any progress with their phonics? We sure can!
In Autumn 2, Year 1 will be setting;
- weekly spellings, linked to the phonics sounds we have learnt that week
- a half termly 'homework bingo' to choose a weekly activity from, which will be celebrated in class
- a weekly reading challenge
- half termly TimesTables RockStar challenges (2x, 5x and 10x table unless otherwise requested)
