Contact Us



The Year 1 team are looking forward to working with you during your child's time in Year 1. If at any point you wish to speak with us or ask any questions please feel free to catch us at the school door at the start or end of the day. Or alternatively, you can contact Miss Whaley using our class email address:

Homework in Year 1

In Year 1 your child will be given a homework pack each half term. This will be sent out on a Friday and children can return it for the following Friday. This will contain a Phonics task and a Mathematics task each week. Children will be given a Homework Heroes raffle ticket for each task completed in their homework pack per week. 

Reading at Home

In Year 1 we will be reading with your child on a 1:1 basis alongside daily phonics teaching and daily story time. 

Once your child brings home a reading book, please read with them at home at least three times per week. This will support their learning in preparation for their National Phonics Screening Assessment at the end of Year 1. 10 minutes of reading at home per day is ideal. When you have read with your child, please sign their reading record and they will receive a Homework Heroes raffle ticket each time they read at home.


We have set reading days for your children to read with an adult on a 1:1 basis. Please see below:


Monday - Sharks

Tuesday - Jellyfish

Wednesday - Starfish

Thursday - Dolphins

Friday - Lobsters
