Class 1

Welcome to Class 1



This term we are focusing on reading and spelling. Homework each will either be a English or Math activity, which will alternate each week. We also ask that children do 3 reads a week, recorded in their reading records.

Optional homework is also available through Bug Club for reading, MyMaths and Times Table Rockstars. Children who do extra homework will be rewarded with Dojos!

For information on homework and how to log on to these, please see the posts below.


We have P.E. every Wednesday and Thursday (weather permitting!) Please have your full P.E. kit in school on these days, this includes: a white T. shirt, black or navy shorts/jogging bottoms and trainers or plimsolls. You can also wear a jumper or hoodie when we are doing games outside.

Thank you!

Homework - Spellings

Every other week, homework will be a spelling activity called Mr Whoops. Children will be asked to find spellings on a sheet and correct them.

We will be practising the spellings in school. The Y3/4 spellings have been put at the front of children's homework books and can be found here.


Homework - Maths

Maths homework is a times table challenge sheet that includes the Year 3 focused times tables, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10. Children have been asked to complete the 3, 5 and 10 times tables. the 4 and 8 times table are optional.
