Reading Books 

Reading books will be changed every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Please try to hear your child read as much as possible; just 5 minutes a day can make such a difference. Please make sure you sign your child's diary so we know it can be changed and if you wish to leave a comment that would be great too.


Library Books

These are collected in and new ones sent home on a Monday; when your child returns their previous one, they will be able to choose another.


Homework and Spellings/Maths Facts 

New homework is sent home on Fridays in your child's green homework book.

The blue spelling/ maths facts book is sent home on Fridays too.  They will need to learn these at home and then they will be tested on the following Friday. 

Please ensure your child's blue spelling book comes back into school every Friday so their new spellings/ maths facts can be stuck in.  Green homework books and homework needs to be returned on Thursdays. 




Please remember in Year One all children take the Phonics Screening Test in June.  Please play games like snap and pairs at home with the common exception words/phonics words in the packs, then your child will become a fluent and confident reader and obviously, stand a better chance of passing the test.  Remember phonics play is a good website to go on regularly to brush up on your phonics skills and there are different levels so your child can practise what's relevant for them.
