Homework

Whilst homework is not compulsory in Key Stage 1, we would encourage you to support your child in completing any homework sent home. The homework sent home is further practice of the objectives taught during the week in your child's lessons.
 
Homework will be issued weekly for Maths and Phonics and will be sent out on a Friday. You will also receive a weekly reading book which will be sent home on a Wednesday after the children have read it in school. We ask this is returned by Monday so that books can be changed over.

Reading

The children read in a variety of ways e.g. shared reading, guided reading groups, phonics lessons, reading for pleasure, collaborative reading etc.

On our ‘Useful Information for Parents’ page you can find out about reading expectations in KS1 and there are support aids that you can use at home.

Guided reading session’s support children develop specific reading skills based on their ability. The teacher uses prior knowledge and year group expectations to plan for these sessions.

The children will bring home the guided reading book that they have read in school. This means they will have already started this book, should be familiar with it and adult comments will identify focus and next steps.

We are very grateful for the time you take to read with your children at home and this without a doubt impacts on their progress. We ask that you fill in any parent comments about how your child has got on and return the reading record.

Phonics and Spellings

In KS1 we use Letters and Sounds and Jolly Phonics to teach phonics (continued from F2). Please see our Useful Information for Parents page for more information about Jolly Phonics.

We also follow a  programme to teach spelling called 'No Nonsense Spelling.' The programme states:

‘Learning needs to happen in school and at home as there is a high expectation within the new National Curriculum that pupils will learn many increasingly complex words.’

Within phonics sessions a range of strategies for learning spellings are introduced and practiced. This enables pupils to choose the strategies they find most effective for learning different words.

The learning strategies can be found on the 'Useful Information for Parents' Page.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to speak to your child’s teachers.
