Water Leys

Primary School

Year 1

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



All homework will be set from the CGP maths book and the CGP comprehension book that has been sent home with your child. Please do not bring these books back to school. We will put the answers up to the set pages next Wednesday so you can mark them at home with your child. If you have any problems with the homework, then please let us know. 



Please complete pages 22-23 of the CGP Maths book. If your child completes this quickly and wants an extra challenge they can practice their number bonds to 20 so that they know them off by heart. 

If your child is finding this tricky, please look back at the previous pages and practice their number bonds to 10. 




Over the next few weeks, we are going to be thinking about recent history. In order to prepare your child for this, please can you talk to them about memories of their past, e.g. when they first walked, what their first words were etc. It would also be nice if you could talk about what you remember from your childhood (music you listened too, games you played, food you ate etc.) and if your child could talk to a grandparent or older relative/friend about their childhood. 



Each week your child will be set a list of words to learn. They will be tested on these every Wednesday at school. 

If your child is in the green phonics group at school, then please learn the green list of words. If your child is not in the green group then please learn the words on the grey list of words. If your child wants an extra challenge, they could have a go at learning the last three words. If you are unsure which list your child should learn, then please do not hesitate to ask your child's teacher.

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 Monday 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?
