Year 1 Expectations

We set our expectations around what we consider to be the best support for your child, in their academic, spiritual and pastoral needs. Homework time is an opportunity to be involved in your child’s learning journey and to help build their confidence and enthusiasm in their learning. Home learning is a chance to consolidate, inspire and explore different areas of the curriculum whilst encouraging your child to become a lifelong self-learner.

As a minimum, we ask children in Year 1 to complete the following home learning every week:

  • Teachers set a short, usually practical task (this will usually be linked to maths or English), for the children to complete at home and upload to Tapestry.
  • Book sharing books to be taken home weekly (Fridays) from the book corner.
  • Once able to blend, children will take home a 'Read Write Inc' book and 'Read Write Inc.'  book bag book for their level.
  • Children will also be provided with weekly 'Read Write Inc.' virtual learning links, which include videos linked to one of the sounds that they have learnt at school in phonics that week, so that they can consolidate their learning and practise reading this sound correctly in words at home.

We will also provide optional tasks:

  • An optional task is the weekly Picture News at Home which follows on from our Collective Worship for that week.
