By the end of Year 1, children should be able to form a sentence independently, making phonetically plausible attempts at spelling.
To ensure your child continues making progress towards this target, please complete an English activity every day.
We suggest completing an activity (or 2 pages) from the CPG Comprehension or Grammar activity books daily.
The handwriting book can be completed as and when your child wants. Please ensure that they use a pencil and that they are forming their letters the correct shape and size as shown in the book.
Please be aware that although these are at Year 1 level, your child may need support with reading parts of the questions.
Welcome to Bug Club! Bug Club is a powerful whole-school reading programme that is proven to raise attainment in reading and spelling and is loved by over a million children world-wide.
Children will have their own login details to Bug Club * and will have the opportunity to use Bug Club either in school or at home or both depending on the preference of your child’s school. Class teachers are able to select a range of books appropriate for your child to read at home. These books will appear in children’s ‘My Stuff’ area on their personal homepages.
Throughout the books there are comprehension quiz questions which children should complete. To answer a question, click on the Bug icon.
When children have finished all of the quiz questions in a book, they will earn coins which they can then spend on ‘rewards’ in one of the reward areas accessed via their homepage.
All completed books move to the ‘My Library’ area of children’s homepages. Children can read these books again if they want to, or they can choose new books from their ‘My Stuff’ area.

In addition to these activity booklets, there are also online websites which will help support teaching and learning in English.
This website has a series of different English lessons which your child can access at home with teaching videos and resources.
BBC Bitesize has loads of fun, interactive games for your child to play to help support teaching and learning at home.
To access the Ed Shed sites, use the login details which are stuck inside of your child's orange homework book. If you do not have these, please contact teachers on dojo and we can send them to you.
Reading and enjoying listening to stories is a huge part of Year 1 learning.
To support this at home we will put a LISTEN AT HOME story on here each week for your child to listen to. When they have finished the story, encourage them to talk about what they have just listened to, ask them questions about what happened and ask them to retell the story.
