Welcome to Year 1 for 2022-23

Home Learning Daily Essentials


  • Please read a range of non-fiction and fiction books as well as poems. 


  • We are currently focusing on recognising numbers 1-30. 
  • Number formation material can also be found attached below for you to practise with your child. 
  • Counting forwards and backwards from any given number. A good resource to select a given number can be accessed here: https://www.topmarks.co.uk/learning-to-count/paint-the-square


  • Practise writing simple sentences with your child. This can be as simple as what you are going to be doing that day. You can write a sentence from a picture from your favourite book, or any book that you have at home. 
  • This term we are focusing on capital letter, finger spaces, full stops in the correct place and reading their own work back to check that it makes sense. 
  • Please practise letter formation with your child. Letter formation sheet can be found attached below.
