Year 1

Our adventure so far...






Here are a list of the Year 1 common exception words. You may hear your children refer to them as "tricky words" or "red words". Children are expected to be able to read and write these words by the end of Year 1. Each week your child will be set 5 of these words as their spelling homework. Once learned, we then encourage for these words to be spelled correctly within their sentences.


Homework is set weekly. 

Everything you need is below:

Monday and Thursday:

📚 Independent Reading

Aim to read your banded book for at least 10 minutes a day.

We are able to change books in school on Monday and Thursday. Please ensure your child's book is in school to be changed at least once a week.

Remember to enjoy your own books from home too!
