Junk modelling

Thank you for all of the fantastic donations of recycling for junk modelling. We now have plenty for our lessons so will not be taking any more donations. Thank you. 


Reading planners 

Thank you for all your entries in the reading planners. Look out for the lovely stickers if you record reading five times per week! 


Numberbond Challenge

Children will be starting to bring home tests on number bonds that are to be worked on both at home and at school. Get practicing at home and we'll test at school! 




Home Learning

Top education researchers tell us that homework has minimal impact for primary age pupils, unless it requires children to rehearse and practise. We have therefore adapted our routines to reflect this. The routines for children in this year group are as follows:

  • Reading and/or talking about their reading to an adult for at least 20 minutes, 5 times a week. This will be evidenced through reading being recorded in reading records. Reading records and reading books should be coming into school daily. Reading records will be signed by teachers to check regular reading is occurring.
  • Learning spelling patterns linked to age-related expectations ready for use in dictation towards the end of every week. These spellings will be on year group notice boards and should be practised at home. Dictation (recorded on sheets) will now be sent home weekly in reading folders so you can see achievement and progress.
  • Reciting multiplication tables to increase their fluency so that they can be applied in other areas of maths and problem solving. These will be tested in our weekly times tables challenge and will be sent home.
  • Half-termly creative home learning will be set at the start of each half term and will celebrated and fed back on during our creative home learning showcases.

Purple home learning books will no longer being used as practice can be done at home. You will be able to see achievement and progress through the dictation and times tables challenge sheets going home weekly. You will also be able to witness progress through class exercise books for English and maths being sent home once during every half-term.





Please read with you children five times a week and sign the reading record/planner. Year 1 teachers are currently benchmarking all pupils to ensure your child is reading books that provide the right amount of challenge for each child. Teachers will sign the planner once a week


Spellings for this week are:


The ur spelling and sound is used at the end of words.









Next week, there will be a dictation to test children on these spellings. 


Spelling patterns coming up will be: 'ir' - whirl and twirl, 'er' - better letter, 'a - e' make a cake,  


Creative Home Learning


Current Learning


We have been considering the big idea -  Bonds to 20 and the position a digit is placed in a number determines its value? Pupils will be learning about number bonds in all numbers up to 20. We are starting the topic with number bond lady-birds spots and rainbow colouring to visualise what each part of a number bond represents. 



Our book this English cycle is: Lila and the Secret of Rain. So far, we have read the book as a class and practiced our acting skills through hot-seating and role-play. Pupils were very excited by this. This week will see the start of our writing cycle where pupils will begin their cold write to learn what they need help in. The following stages of our learning journey are the gap filling lessons which help with writing skills. Exciting!

We will be continuing the focus of number bonds to 20 to consolidate learning. 




Our focus this week will be on creating our final draft using all of the learning from the last two weeks.
