Welcome to Year 1


Miss Brogan & Mrs Thickett

Hello Year 1!


Thank you for all your hard work with home learning last week. Thank you also to all your families at home who have been so helpful (and very patient) whilst we tried to work things out with technology, we are very grateful. Please find all home learning for this week on Microsoft Teams. If you do not have your child's individual login for Microsoft Teams, please email me at and I will find this for you. 


I will be hosting a 10 minute 'virtual check in' with all pupils via Microsoft Teams every day at 9.15am, and 1.15pm. Please log into Microsoft Teams and join this meeting, as I would like to keep strong communications with all children and families during this time. 


Love Miss Brogan

Can you write them onto small pieces of paper, turn them over (like a card game) and say them to an adult? I wonder whether an adult could hide them in the room so that you have to find them. Then remember, you have to read them by yourself!


I have included some tricky word cards below, but if you do not have a printer you can make some at home that look similar.

1) Please watch the video ‘finding a part’. We have done lots of work using part-whole models, so I know you will be able to show an adult at home how we use them.


Please use the part-whole models below if you need them. Don't worry if you don't have counters, use some other objects you have at home e.g. penny coins, pieces of pasta etc.

smileyPhonics & Readingsmiley

Please encourage your child to read at home every day. This may be their school reading book, or a book they have chosen. Please use the top tips below to support them with their understanding and comprehension skills.


We would love you to encourage your child to play phonics games at home. These games will consolidate their learning within school, in a fun and practical way. You can find many games on Phonics Play and Topmarks, please click on the links below.

Please use the phonics mats below to work with your child. By the end of Year 1 they are required to know all these sounds, and blend them within words. They are also required to know the tricky words on each mat.

Here are a selection of recommended reads for Year 1 children. Please encourage your child to engage in reading exciting, age appropriate books.


Please enjoy reading these comics at home. They are interesting to read, and link to the phonics sounds that we have been learning at school.



Please find below a knowledge organiser and parent work book for you to use with your child. This will support them with their learning in school, and will help you to gather an understanding of how they are doing with their current maths learning. 


Current maths work is: Addition and Subtraction
