The Year 1 team are really looking forward to seeing what learning is talking place at home. Our aim, in partnership with Parents and Carers is to support, consolidate and extend the learning covered in the classroom whilst encouraging children to develop the responsibility and confidence needed to learn independently. 


In Year 1, we expect the children to be:

  • Reading every day
  • Looking back at the Floppy's Phonics Workbook each week
  • Doing their Maths homework 4-5 times a week
  • Completing their Topic homework for the given dates 


If you have any issues regarding homework, please do not hesitate to contact us via email on and/or




Your child will bring home their reading book each day for you to read at home. The book marked 'core' is fully phonetically decodable and your child should be able to read this without too much help. The expectation is that your child reads daily and that their reading record book is also filled in. This will allow us to see how they are getting on with their reading at home. Please return their reading folder each day as we listen to every child each week and change their reading books weekly.

Please remember that Reading Bingo books are to be shared- there is no expectation that your child reads them themselves.



In your child's reading folder you will find the Floppy's Phonics Workbooks we are using in school. There is a quick guide attached below to give you ideas on how to use it at home. Please remember not to start any new pages at home.



In your child's homework book you will find the mathematics facts for your child to practise until they know them off by heart. A copy of the maths for this half term is found below.



In your child’s homework book you will find a grid of exciting activities linked to our topic 'Explorers'. We would like the children to complete at least 2 tasks over the half term. Please bring their homework books to share in class on Monday 7th February. A copy of the topic homework is found below.
