Spellings are put in planners every Friday and focuses on a specific sound that will be tested the following Friday. The sounds will be taken from the 'Read, Write Inc.' phonics and reading framework and will be presented with some examples to allow you to practice and learn with the children. The words provided will more than likely not be the words they will be tested on but given to give the children the opportunity to practice the sound and its context within a word. Combined with their wider phonic knowledge, the children will be able to spell the word given during testing.


For the Numeracy homework this year, we would like to continue having the children expand and refine their mental maths skills using the 'Doodle Maths' app that can be downloaded to any device on iOS and Android. If you have any questions, please get in touch.
To ensure our learning sticks, the 'tested' numeracy questions on a Friday will be around our learning from that week, as well as a few questions linked to the 2, 5 and 10 times tables.


We will also be continually assessing your child's knowledge of the Year 1 key words (a full set was sent home at the start of the year, if you need this again please let your class teacher know). This list of words is what we hope a child will be able to read instantly by the end of Year 1. We recommend looking at a selection of words, little and often, will help support your child. Please continue to practice words your child knows to help them remember. 


Don't forget that guided reading books and keywords (back of test book) are changed regularly. Please can these be kept in your child's bookbag at all times.
