Class 1  


 Year 1 Homework

Set:  Monday 15th January

Due in: Monday 22nd January


Each week the expectation is that your child reads for at least 10 minutes per night. Please also write a comment of your child’s reading in their ‘Home Contact Book’ so that we are aware of your child’s reading at home and can change their book when necessary.


This week we are learning the sound /ar/ which can be made using the digraph ‘ar’. We are also looking at the tricky words ‘are’, ‘our’ and ‘were’. Please reinforce this and encourage your child to practice the spellings on the word list in their Contact Books. To help them remember the words, they could try to make up silly sentences using as many of these words as possible. The children may bring in these words or sentences to show to earn team points or just keep them at home. Thank you. J


I am sending home a 100 square and would like the children to practise counting up to 30, then 50 and if confident to 100. This can also be used to recognise the numbers.
