In Year 1 reading at home is vitally important for the children.
We expect the children to read out loud to an adult at least 5 times a week at home. Please sign or initial in the homework diary to confirm that this has been completed. Please remember that you have access to a wealth of Bug Club books to support this.
Choose 5-10 spellings from the list in the homework diary to practise each week. Should you require further words please speak to your child's class teacher.
Maths passports (Stage 1) are located in the homework diary-please practise a couple of the skills each week.
