Daily Essentials


  • Please read your child's phonics reading book with them each day. Any extra reading you can do with your child at home would be most beneficial. This could include a range of non-fiction and fiction books as well as poems. 
  • Please see a list of Year 1 recommended reads below. 
  • Phonics screening check words will be sent home for extra practise. 


  • We are continuing to focus on number formation and place value with 50.
  • Please practise number formation 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 letters, 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.
