Home Learning Expectations

Every week, in order to support learning in school, please ensure that your child:

  • Reads 5 times each week at home and record these reads in their reading diary.
  • Practises maths number facts – the current focus will be recorded in their Reading Diary.
  • Practises the phonics/spelling pattern of the week – the focus for the week will be recorded in their Reading Diary.
  • In addition, a Learning Mat will be sent home at the start of a new history, geography or science topic.

These are the Common Exception Words that your child should be able to read and spell by the end of Year 1.



Please help your child learn the facts above. A strong foundation in number is really important when developing mathematical understanding.
