Year 1 - Home Learning

Friday 15th October 2021

Hello YR1 parents/carers,

On this page is where Year 1 pupils' homework will be uploaded. We will be using a website called Purple Mash where I will set homework onto and children will complete them. This will be in the form of two tasks in your child's 2Do folder. Children have been sent logins, but if you lose it please email me (Khadeeja) and I can send it via email.


Please complete the following 2Dos on Purple Mash for homework:

  • 2Do: Retell the story's (Handa's surprise)

  • 2Do: Part-whole models


Please could you listen to your child read and write a comment in their reading record book. Please encourage your child to read it or more than once if you can as it builds their fluency skills, as well as modelling using Fred talk to sound and blend. E.g. c-a-t  = cat 


Other learning tasks you may want to try:

  • Have a go at writing a list what you see or do during your weekend. Encourage your children to use their phonics knowledge to help them spell, including Fred fingers. 

  • Practise letter formation of Set 1 sounds (alphabet) with your child. Encourgae them to carefully form their letters.  See attachment to help your child using the RWI rhymes. If you are confident they are forming their letters correctly, encourage your child to write a short caption using finger spaces. 

If you have any questions or unsure about anything please do not hesitate to email.

Thank you!
