Welcome to the Year 1 homework page
The most important thing for your child is to keep reading their reading books, using their phonics knowledge to decode words and discussing the story with you and to practise counting and comparing objects in practical situations. These additional activities should take no more than 10 to 20 minutes and should be something fun to do with your child. If your child is too tired or finding it too challenging, please leave it for another time. You will probably find that, particularly at the beginning of each term, your child will be quite tired after a busy day at school.
For the EducationCity homeworks, I have set a group of activities to try with your child. This should give you the ability to repeat an activity if you think your child would benefit from it the next week, or to move on to a different activity if that is more appropriate. If your child has lost their login details, please contact me by email or through the school office.
Each week there will be a list of words to talk about with your child. These are NOT spellings to learn, these are words to discuss to help increase our vocabulary to use across the curriculum.
The only homework for December is:
- write your Christmas cards;
- write your letter to Santa;
- practise singing Christmas songs; and
- get ready for Christmas!
