Reading Eggs

In Year 1, we would like all children to participate with our fun and interactive Reading Eggs programme both at home and at school. All children should be encouraged to enjoy 20 minutes of Reading Eggs at home every week, including one reading lesson. Please feel free to extend your learning for even longer! Your teacher will be able to see all of your hard work. Play games, complete puzzles, read stories, write your own stories and complete reading and spelling lessons all whilst earning awards and styling your own Reading Egg character. 


You will find your login details at the front of your yellow reading record. Quick, log in now to start the fun! 




There will be one piece of homework set each week. This will change between English, Maths, Science or one area of the wider curriculum. 


All homework is set on Friday and is expected back by the following Wednesday.

Year 1 Book Club

During our recent online video calls, the Year 1 children shared their favourite books with their friends and explained why they liked them.  We have compiled a list of some of these.  If you want a suggestion of a book to read or listen to, take a look at our Year 1 Book Club list.


Fun with Phonics at home

Each week we will be adding a new link for you to practice a set 2 or set 3 sound at home.
