Shared Journeys, Unique Memories

Year 1 2020

Autumn 1 HOME LEARNING information – This half term you are receiving a half termly home learning overview which shows the weekly spellings, words to learn to read and phonics sounds to read and write for each week. Please keep hold of this as these will be the home learning we expect your child to learn each week.  

This overview aims to revisit and consolidate skills for many children, as we want to develop confidence and independence. It also includes some new learning from the year 1 curriculum  We are currently assessing children to find out individual ‘gaps’ in their learning and will let you know, over the next few weeks, where you may be able to help with these ‘gaps’.


Please also keep an eye out in your child’s book bag as some weeks we will also be sending home additional home learning on a Friday. These may be individual to your child’s needs and so will help with their ‘catch-up’ or they may be an additional challenge.



Spellings to learn

We would like your child to learn the spellings listed each week. Please look at the ‘Spelling leaflet’ too which gives lots of fun ways for your child to learn those spellings. The words will be tested the following week on a Thursday.


Words to learn to read

The weekly words to learn to read revisit phase 4 words and move onto phase 5 words. Please find fun ways for your child to learn to read these words. Learning to read tricky or key words, without the need to sound out, supports your child’s reading fluency, comprehension and progress.


Sounds to read and write

These are the sounds we will be learning in phonics lessons each week.

It is really important for your child’s learning, in both reading and writing, to have a secure knowledge and understanding of phonics and spellings. Please support your child in learning to read and spell these sounds.


Maths skills to practice

Please support your child with the weekly maths activities. Many of these can be completed through oral chanting or through practically using objects around the house. Helping your child with these numeracy skills supports their maths fluency, mental arithmetic skills and helps them to make links when solving calculations. A few minutes practising every day is beneficial to your child’s learning.  You can do this in the car, out in the garden or when walking along the street – quick and often works best!
