YEAR 1 HOMEWORK

Dear Parents

Here  are further specific requirements for the Year 1 children regarding homework:

Spelling

Children in Y1 should practise the ‘common exception words’ for Y1.  A list of the Y1 and Y2 common exception words is among the “Quick Homework Links” at the top of this page.  Children should be practising these regularly through out the year.

Each week, these words are also supplemented by words which follow a particular spelling rule or pattern, which we are looking at in the classroom.   There is also a document in the “Quick Homework Links” area outlining some fun ways to practise spellings.  Below are some free websites that children can use to practise spelling words.

Maths

The children have been given log in details to a website called Deeping Understanding https://www.deepeningunderstanding.co.uk.  Online activities will be assigned to the children based on the work we have been doing in the classroom.

Games to support this learning can also be found on the following website.

Please do ask if you are unsure of anything.

Kind regards
