Year 1

Welcome from Miss Cordell

'My child is achieving excellent learning at this school'

Parent Survey



We do PE every Monday and Tuesday.  Please ensure your child does not wear earrings and comes to school in their PE kit.


Dear Parents

Alongside regular reading, here are further requirements for Year 1 children regarding homework


Maths Homework sheets can be downloaded from this page: Year 1 Homework – Our Lady of Lourdes Primary School Rottingdean

The children have also been given log in details to a website called Numbots where children can practise their addition and subtraction skills. 

Games to support other maths learning can also be found on the following websites.


Each week we will give you a ‘Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check’ sheet with the spellings for that week to practise.  This will be stuck into children’s homework books.  However, if you would prefer a more creative approach to practising spellings then if you look on the links above on our Year 1 page, you will find some alternative ways to practise spellings.  E.g. You could look at the ‘Spelling Challenge Activity’ document for activities such as ‘rainbow writing the words’ or the ‘Outdoor Spellings Challenge Activity Cards’ for activities such as writing your spellings in sand.  You don’t have to use the Look, Cover, Write, Check sheet if you would rather not.

Once your child has completed their spellings, for an extra challenge they can practise writing the words in a sentence.  Or even use as many of the spelling words as they can in one sentence. 

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.

Below are some free websites that children can also use to practise spelling words.

Please do ask if you are unsure of anything.

Kind regards

Miss Cordell
