Welcome to the Year 1 Home Learning Page. Please support your child's learning at home by doing the following every week.


Each week your child will be given 5 spellings to practise at home in preparation for their spelling test in school. We will be learning how to spell all of the common exception words which are available to download at the bottom of this page. These spellings will be given to your child in their home learning book and will be available for you to download on this page. Please support your child in practising these.  


In our Phonics lessons we will be learning how to sound out and blend decodable words. Your child will learn new sounds each week which they will need to practise reading in real and fake words. A list of words and a sound mat will be sent home each week for you to practise with your child.


Practise number work with your child at home 2 or 3 times a week using Numbots - a fun and engaging maths learning platform. You will need to register your child on this.
