Year 1 Homework – 17th March 2023

This week we have revised oy, ir and ue. We have been writing sentences using these digraphs and extending our sentences with conjunctions and the Year 1 Harder to Read and Spell Words. 

For homework this week we would like you to match the captions to the pictures. These captions contain many of the Phase 5 sounds we have learnt already.



As part of our unit on addition and subtraction (up to 20), we have attached some subtraction questions to try. Be careful, some are missing number equations that you may need to think about!



Enjoy the ELS books! We will still be assigning online reading via the Oxford Owl website too. Please read this at home together and allow your child to attempt to read independently. 

Please do not click “I have finished the book” on the online books until the end of the week - otherwise you will not be able to read it again during the week!

We look forward to logging in and seeing that you have read the books so we can ask you what you thought of them!


Additional information:

This week we say goodbye to Miss Bithell, our PGCE student. We want to thank her for all of her hard work and support throughout the last 2 months. She will be missed by all.
