Reading in Year 1

Reading books are sent home every Monday. Please keep your child's book and read it with them every day and then return it to school the following Monday. Please also practise reading the words on the Word Lists we send home. This will really help with their phonetical knowledge in both reading and writing. 

Children should practice reading the Year 1 common exception words 

Spellings in Year 1

As well as reading the common exception words,  please also practise writing them to enable you child to spell the 45 Year 1 Common Exception Words by the end of Year 1.  Spelling and writing the words on their Word Lists will also help foster links between their  Reading, Writing and Phonics Learning.

Maths in Year 1:

Autumn Term 2023: 

This term, the children are working on the very important skills below - These skills are fundamental to begin their journey as Mathematicians:

  • Counting aloud - 0-20 Forwards and Backwards. (Pay attention to 11/12/13)
  • Careful counting1 to 1 correspondence is the skill of counting one object as you say one number. For example, if you are counting objects, you point at the first item and say ‘1,’ then point to the second and say ‘2’ and so on...
  • Number recognition - recognising the digits (alongside the written word) from 0 to at least 20.
  • Number Order - being able to place the digits 0-20 in the correct order. 


We may send additional work home throughout the year to support their Maths learning in school.
