Learning Experience






How you can support your child at home


  • To read at home at least 5 times a week
  • To learn tricky words (Superhero word mat on class web pages.)
  • To recognise numbers 1-100, (100 splat square on class web pages.)
  • To complete weekly Maths homework to consolidate learning at home.
  • To complete the take home task: Children should have completed this with as little support as possible and be able to speak confidently about what they have done and how they achieved it.


If you have any questions about Year 1 please speak to a member of the Year 1 team who will be more than happy to help.
