Spelling is an integral part of the writing process. Pupils who spell with ease are able to concentrate on the content of their writing. With this in mind, we carry on with the Letters and Sounds programme on a daily basis in Year 1.

Spelling lists will be given out on a Friday and will be linked to the sounds being taught that week or a list of frequently used words. Sometimes, the list will link to the class topic.

This week’s list includes words that the children will need in their day to day writing.

Hint: practice little and often works best!

It’s the summer…

…so there are no homework activities or spellings to learn.

Don’t forget learning can still happen in the holidays:

  • take your children to the park and talk about what they can see, hear and smell;
  • take a trip using a bus or train, and take time to look at the timetable (Why is it in the 24 hour clock? How long will the journey last? When will we arrive?)
  • enjoy visits to the local library;
  • spend time baking (What unit of measurement will we use to weigh? If we want to make twice as much, how much will we need? When will the food be ready?);
  • encourage your child to write some postcards to friends and family;
  • take a trip to a museum or art gallery.

Research shows that the long summer holidays can mean some children’s learning regresses and they might struggle in the autumn term to keep up.  Frequent talk-times, reading, counting and tables practice are so important!
