Year 1 Update


Hello all, we hope you are safe and well.

As we enter the second week of home schooling, we wanted to provide some direct links and tasks for the children.


English ~ Phonics/ Reading

In school we follow a phonics programme called ‘Read, Write Inc.’ ‘Read, Write, Inc’ are uploading daily phonics lessons onto their YouTube channel.

By the end of year one, the children are expected to recognise, read and write words containing Set 1, 2 and 3 speed sounds.


Phonics Play is a site loved by many of our children, as they can practice their phonics skills while playing a variety of games. Phonics Play have provided free subscription during this time. Log in details can be found on their page-


Oxford Owl has free e-book access during this time to allow your children to implement the phonetic skills they have learnt. We would recommend daily reading with your child.


Alongside the children’s phonics work, we would highly recommend the children completing reading comprehensions. Many of these can be accessed on Twinkl by searching ‘Year 1 Reading Comprehension’.  (Password: CVDTWINKLHELPS)


We would also like to draw your attending to the Year 1 common exception words and high frequency words on Twinkl.

Again, the expectation is that children can read and spell these words by the end of year one.

Twinkl also has a plethora of phonics and story activities for you to access.



To support our teaching of Maths, we follow a programme called ‘The White Rose.’ They too, luckily, have provided free online access to parents. We would recommend making your way through these activity packs.


Snap Maths and Twinkl also provide a range of number and number sentence worksheets, which may be of help.


Children may also access TT Rockstars (Log ins were sent home but if needed, please telephone the school office who will be happy to re-provide for you.) to develop their multiplication knowledge. also provide a range of mental maths games suitable for year one children.
