Miss Copestick 

Dear Parents,

Below are some suggestions for home learning activities to support your child's learning. I will upload some tasks on Seesaw and the children can always upload things to share with me. The most important activities are reading daily, phonics activities and using Numbots to keep up their number fluency skills. 

Please do what works well for you as a family.

Miss Copestick

Year one take part in daily phonics which aim to recover previously learned letter to sound correspondences as well as teach new and alternative spellings. Usually following the format of 'revisit and review - learn something new - practise - apply' Children access snappy and engaging activities to support them in their reading and spelling.

As the statutory Phonics Screening Check takes place in Year 1 (summer term) we prepare by revising sounds learned in Reception and also learn new Y1 sounds and spellings.

You can prepare for the phonics screening check at home by following this link 

Homework will also be sent home in the children's book bags to support phonics and you can also access many phonics games and apps on the internet.

You may be interested to know that above, I have saved a document (HFW checklist) indicating all of the sight words that children should be able to read as they move from reception through to Y2.


Children will need sun-cream and a sun hat during hot weather and a warm coat in the winter.
