Year 1 Expectations

We expect children to read their Collins Big Cat book every day at home, fill in their reading record. We also send home a 'Reading for Pleasure' book that the adult can read to the children. 

Your child is given a spelling list each Friday as homework which links to the Little Wandle phonics scheme that we follow in the school. We expect children to practise these daily at home and the children do a spelling test every following Friday. All of these books (Big Cat books, reading record, 'Reading for Pleasure' book and spelling book)  is due in and collected on a Thursday then new homework and the books are given out on a Friday.
