Year 1 Homework

Each week we expect your child to read at least 3 times.


There will also be a variety of activities the children may be asked to do, which information on this can always be found in the purple homework book. If you need another copy you can always ask me and I can give you a new sheet! Homework is also uploaded onto class dojo, so have a look for weekly updates! 


Sometimes your child may bring home a set of spellings to practise. They can do this however they wish using one of the strategies they know. These include rainbow writing, speed writing, pyramid spelling, shape spelling or making up silly mnemonics.


Rainbow writing

Speed writing

How many times can the word be written in one minute?


Pyramid spelling







Shape spelling

(see example sent home)









Each week your child will bring home some maths homework, related to number. Your child is expected to know many number facts off by heart, that can be instantly recalled. The "over learning" of number facts is important to support your child in memorising them. Your child will then be able to use and apply this knowledge to support all aspects of the maths curriculum. Your child should continue to use Mathletics as an excellent resource to practise key maths skills.
