Reading Books

Children will change their decodable reading books every Friday.  They will bring this book home and we would ask that they read each book aloud to an adult at least two times.  Please record a snippet of their reading on Seesaw each week.  Children will also be allocated books using our online books on Oxford Owls.  Log in details can be found inside their blue reading record.  We would encourage you to add a brief comment (including date, title, pages read) in your child's blue Reading Record.  

In addition children will be able to choose a 'Reading for Pleasure' book from the school library to take home on a Friday. 

Please encourage them to look after these books and return all books to school the following Thursday. 

Homework

Year 1 children will be set homework every Friday via Seesaw. As we are aiming to reduce the paper we use as a school, we will try and set homework that can be completed in homework books as well as on Seesaw. Paper copies will be provided for any homework that cannot be completed straight into homework books. The focus of the homework will alternate each week between Math and Phonics/ English. 

Mathletics tasks will be set each week in addition to the weekly homework. These tasks are optional and we will provide children with as many opportunities to access Mathletics in school as well. Your child can access further tasks in Mathletics but we ask that you do not go past the Autumn section as they have not yet had the learning to help them be successful in some of these areas of Maths. 

PE

Children should come into school in their PE kits with joggers and trainers on their allocated PE days.  They should also have pumps available in a bag on their peg for indoor PE sessions.  The allocated PE days for each class are:

Year 1SH - Tuesday (indoor) and Friday (outdoor)

Year 1DK - Tuesday (indoor) and Friday (outdoor)

Homework

Our main focus on home learning in Year 1 is daily reading and, as the year progresses, basic skills such as mental arithemetic and spellings.  Year 1 children will be given one piece of homework linked to either maths, English or topic work to support our work in class and details will be put on Seesaw each Friday.  Please upload any work using Seesaw for the classteachers to mark.
