Weekly and termly home learning (homework)

Year 1 Reading

In year 1 children should be reading a minimum of four times a week. With at least three of those times reading their levelled reading book. 

We collect and change the reading and sharing books every Friday.


In term 4, we will be looking at the artist Piet Mondrain. Piet Mondrain is a Dutch artist best known for his abstract paintings. Abstract art is when the picture doesn’t look exactly like the object being represented. 

Piet Mondrain would always mix his own colours. He often used primary colours – red, yellow and blue. 

It would be wonderful if the children could create their own Piet Mondrain inspired artwork at home with a grown up. Please email a picture of any artwork created to the class emails so that they can be showcased in class.


We will be introducing the children to an online resource called Numbots this term. It is a great way to learn number facts through playing fun games. The children will bring their Numbots login details home at the end of week four.
