‘Through God’s love, we are the rich soil where
roots grow and seeds flourish.’ Luke 8:4-15

Enabling children to flourish and succeed


Homework in Year 1 is to practise skills taught in the classroom. This can be done by logging onto Busy Things, choosing 'Favourites' and playing any of the games shown. These are updated once new content has been taught. 


A tricky word mat has been provided on this page for you to help your child learn to read and write the words. This can be done in many ways such as writing them into made-up sentences, a spelling quiz, spotting them when you are out and about or printing it out to stick on the fridge and focus on a few words for a few weeks!


All children need to visit the handwriting website by clicking the link provided on this page. Children need to be able to form letters and numbers from the correct starting point. Please show your child how to form the letters/numbers if they are finding it tricky. Please cover all capital and lowercase letters as well as numbers until your child can form these correctly.
