Year One Spring Term Homework

Home Learning Ideas for Year 1


Please encourage your child to continue to:

  • Practice phonics daily
  • Practice handwriting
  • Play board games
  • Write stories
  • Count to 100 backwards and forwards
  • Count in 2's, 5's and 10's
  • Solve mathematical problems (e.g. capacity and cooking)
  • Practice Year 1 key words
  • Continue to read daily from a range of books or magazines
  • Write reviews of what they have read
  • Use their homework grids
Since we are encouraging pupils to use the internet more than ever for home learning we must, as adults, try to ensure they remain safe online. We encourage you to monitor their internet use regularly and carefully. If you would like any more information about this then visit the Parent Tab on our homepage.

Our Autumn 2 Topic was - Paws, Claws and Whiskers!

Soft fur, sharp claws and twitching whiskers. What’s your favourite animal? One that meows? One that barks? Or maybe one that scurries or slithers? From pets at home to animals in the zoo, let’s find out what animals like to eat and where they like to sleep. Do you know how to look after a rabbit? A cat? Or even a snake? Find out how the elephant got his trunk and how the rhinoceros got his leathery skin. Perhaps you know how the dog got his waggy tail? Can you make a food chain to show who eats who? When a gaggle of mysterious pets arrive at the local pet shop, it’s up to you to take care of them. Feed them, clean them and discover their daily needs. After all that work, curl up and take a nap – a cat nap!
