Water Leys

Primary School

Year 1

Every Wednesday we will be putting your homework here on the website. 



Your child will be sent home from school with two new homework books which all homework will now be set from. Just like before, we do not need these books returned to school and we will put the answers on this page every Wednesday so that you can mark them together at home. 



Please complete Spring Term: Workout 5 (pages 34 and 35) in the CGP 10 minute workout book. If your child completes this quickly and wants an extra challenge then have a look at the autumn term activities (pages 2-25) and choose one of these to complete. 




Please complete pages 4-5 in the CGP Comprehension Targeted Question Book.

If your child wants an extra challenge then they could write about what they might see if they were fishing by the river. Remember to use descriptive language. 







Each week we will put a new list of spelling words here for your child to learn. If your child is able to spell the first six words, then have a go at learning the 2 challenge words. Your child will show us their fantastic spellings on a Wednesday so please learn them for then. 


Our spelling words this week is words with 'v' and words that end in 've'. It might help your child to learn their spellings by explaining that normally if there is a 'v' sound at the end of the word then it is spelt with a 've'. 








Challenge words:









Practising handwriting at home

 Each afternoon we practise our neat handwriting. Click on the link below to see the cursive handwriting style we do at school.  The common exception words are tricky words you should be able to read and spell by the time you have completed Year 1.  Try copying these words in your best cursive handwriting. 



              Home Reading 


Please bring reading packets to school each Wednesday so that we can change home reading books. 

Try to read daily with your child.  Initially, the reading might be slow and sounding out of some words might be needed.  On further reading of the book, pace should improve as should expression.  

Questions to ask your child about the book:

  • Who is the author of this book?
  • Who is your favourite character and why?
  • What do you think will happen in the end?
