Welcome to Year 1!
Mrs Stutters, Mrs Moore, Miss Britten, Mrs P, Miss Spencer and Miss Brooks welcome you to Year 1.
Please find some additional tasks for your child to access this week. We would like all children to access the daily maths lessons on the White Rose website: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/
Your child can also now access doodleenglish - you can access this through your usual doodlemaths account - we would encourage your child to access this daily along with doodlemaths.
Keep up the fantastic work and send through examples of your child's work and we will add it to our twitter page.
Stay safe and please contact us if you need any further guidance.
Well done for all your efforts this week. Please keep sending us the fantastic work your child is doing either by email or twitter. A new activity has been set on Doodle Maths - this will be done every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

We would recommend completing at least 3 a week.

Common Exception Words
The expectation for the attainment of children in Year 1 has grown massively. In writing, children are expected to spell high frequency words, or common exception words (words we can't use our sounds to spell) correctly. Below is a list of all the words they should be spelling correctly in their independent writing.
