Sumdog

Each Friday the children are set personalised homework on Sumdog. The children can access tasks in SPAG, spelling and maths. Your child’s class teacher monitors how often your child accesses each task and for how long. It is expected that they access it every night for at least 5 minutes.

Topic Homework

Each term a new topic homework will be set, because of current guidelines we are unable to display these as we once would have. Please send photos of the completed tasks to your child’s class teacher or the year 1 inbox as we would still like to celebrate the lovely work being done.

Reading

The children are given reading books every week. Once read, the book can be bought back to school and will be changed for another one. If your child completes their book quickly please encourage them to reread it for fluency and understanding. 

The children also have access to 'Teach Monsters to Read'. If you don't have access to their log in information, please speak to their class teacher who will get it for you.

Phonics Test

The children have a phonics session every day in school. In preparation for the phonics test, please support your child’s learning by referring back to our previous letter outlining the RWI sets.

Below are some additional resources your child may want to access at home:

 Spellings

As part of the National Curriculum, children are expected to know certain spellings at different points during primary school. These spellings are practised and used in school but your support in running over these would be very beneficial for your child. If you would like to do this then we recommend that you focus on a few spellings at a time and try to make it as fun as you can! There a number of free apps, such as Spelling Notebook, where you can add word lists on to help them practise.

Click here for the Year 1 list.

Remember your child's class teacher would be more than happy to assist you with any of these activities. They will be able to advise different approaches as well as advising on any particular areas of focus. 

If you have any difficulties accessing the work, please contact BromptonY1@thewestbrooktrust.org

Many thanks for your support.
