Spellings and Homework

Homework will be set on Friday.

Spellings will be set on Friday.

Spelling tests will be on a Friday morning.


Both homework and spellings are due on Friday, however homework can be handed in as soon as it is completed.

On your child's spelling sheet we will give you their score and highlight the spellings they need to keep practicing at home.


Phonics is a key part of the year 1 timetable and is a daily session.

We will focus on phases 3 and 4 to begin with and move on to phase 5 during the Spring Term.

All children in Year 1 will take a phonics screening test in June. This is standard test which takes place one to one and is made up of 40 words. 20 real words and 20 nonsense (pseudo) words. It is looking at how the children are able to segment and blend confidently.

Over the year the children will work on their phonics in class, one to one or at home for homework.

This screening is nothing to be worried about and the children will be fully prepared as we are able to use our phonics sessions to practice the skills required for the screening.


So what can I do to help?

Listen to your child read as often as you can.

Use the websites to practice numbers and sounds.

Support your child with their homework and spellings.

Practice spellings everyday.


Remember in Class 1
