Year 1 - Home Learning


Google Classroom

We have prepared a Google Classroom for you to access at home for homework and isolation work. Staff will be able to see who has joined the class. The content in the classroom is available to all. Staff will receive notifications when a student adds content.

If your child is isolating they will be able to access their learning from home. You will be able to leave messages and ask questions, but it is important to remember that our normal classroom rules for respectful behaviour will still apply when using Google Classroom.

To access this you will need to log in to use your school email.

Encourage your child to write about anything that interests them. 

This may be in the form of a story, a list, a caption, labels,  a poem or a report. 

When writing sometimes it is easier to get your child to draw a plan of their ideas and to talk through what they are going to write before writing.

Encourage your child to use capital letters, correct punctuation, finger spaces, cursive letter formation, their phonic knowledge and a wider range of words. 


Information on how we teach phonics in school can be found here.
