Please see this term's Curriculum Newsletter and homework project below: 

Have a look at this term’s homework project below. These are just suggestions. We don't expect you to complete all of them! We hope you will enjoy what we have set smiley

How can I support my child with their learning this year?


Reading: Your child will have a fully phonetically decodable book that matches the phoneme we have been working on in class that week. This will be in the version of an eBook and more information will follow about how to access these.


Your child will also bring home a library book each week. Please read this with them and bring them back to school on a Monday, ready for them to be changed on a Tuesday.

PE: In Year 1, P.E. will take place on a Monday and a Wednesday this term.  Please make sure the children come to school wearing their PE kit on these days.

Phonics: The children will continue to have daily phonics sessions in Year 1. We are following a new phonics scheme this year called Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised. It is important for the children to continue to recognise sounds within words and to segment and blend the sounds fluently. They need to also understand and recognise that some words cannot be segmented and blended and have to be read by sight. Some more information about these words which are sometimes known as 'tricky words' can be found in the section 'Phonics this term.'


If you would like some support on how the sounds are pronounced, the different graphemes that represent the sounds and how we segment and blend please follow the link below.



Maths: In Autumn term 2, we will be looking at addition and subtraction with numbers to 10. 


When focusing on subtraction, we have been using part whole models to partition a number into two parts. We have then used the parts and the whole to create subtraction equations. Additionally, we have been using a number line to subtract and count back.

As part of our maths lessons, we are working on correct number formation. Please see the guide below which indicates with a red dot where to begin each number.
