Year 1 Home Learning, reinforcing what the children have been learning at school, is given out on Wednesdays and handed in on Mondays.
Children receive both a reading practise and a reading for pleasure book, each week. These will come home with children each Wednesday and should be returned on Monday.
Overview of the events / milestones during the year group
In June, children will take a Year 1 Phonics screening check which helps your child’s teacher to identify if your child is secure in sounding out and blending graphemes. It also detects if they can read phonically decodable words. Don’t be worried about this test. Your child’s teacher will be assessing your child daily and will have identified any areas they need to focus on well before the test date.
