Home Learning

Home Reading
Children in Reception, Year 1 and 2, read fully decodable books with an adult 3 times per week during our ‘Reading Practice’ sessions. These books are then sent home for children to build their reading fluency and showcase their developing skills and phonetic knowledge to their parents/carers. 
These 3 reading practice sessions each have a different focus; decoding, prosody and comprehension. Our reading books in Reception, Y1 and Y2 are 'Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised Big Cat books'
As well as their matched phonics reading book, children will also bring home a 'sharing' library book to promote reading for pleasure.
We encourage you to support your child daily with their reading and their phonics and ask that you make a note of when your child has read in their reading record. Should you have any questions about phonics and early reading, please speak to a member of the Year 1 Team.



The children also have access to Collins e-books (links to the website can be found below). The login details for this website can be found in your child’s reading record. They will also be assessed on the Year 1 Common Exception words and these can be found in their homework books.


Project Activities

Your child has the opportunity to complete activities linked to their current project, if they wish. Below is a menu for them to choose from. They may choose as few or as many as they want to complete. If they do complete any of the project activities this half term, please can your child bring them in on the date listed on the homework menu. There will also be a project showcase (date listed on homework menu) when you will be invited in to celebrate their work.
