Our daily timetable:
Morning- Phonics, English and Maths
Afternoon- Handwriting, Group read and a variety of subjects using our 'Rainbow Curriculum of Greasley'.
Spelling and homework:
In Year 1, the children have a weekly spelling test consisting of 6 words. A spelling list will be stuck in their homework book on a Friday and then they will be tested on the following Friday. This list will be made up of words following spelling patterns that are included in the year 1 curriculum. It will also include words from our year 1 word list. (See below) Children will get the opportunity to practise these at school in guided spelling but, as always, practise at home is always beneficial.
Half termly, we will test your child on the 40 statutory National Curriculum words for Year 1 which are:
We will also send homework on a Friday and it would be great if you could bring this back by the following Thursday.
Reading books will be changed weekly, this will allow your child to read their book more than once which will develop their fluency and comprehension skills.
