Home Learning Expectations


In Year 1 Nightingales, the children are expected to read at least five times a week. Please remember to sign their reading planner each time they have read. They do not have to read the book that they bring home from school for each time you sign their planner. They are allowed to read books from home, books on Bug Club, etc. If the child has their planner signed, this will be recorded by the teaching staff. Every Friday, we have 'Cookie Friday' where they will receive a cookie if they have read five times during that week. 

Some children have already been enjoying the cookies that they have achieved. 

Keep up the good work! smiley



Common Exception Words

In Year 1 Nightingales, the children are expected to be able to read, spell and write the year 1 common exception words (these can be found in the back of their blue home learning books). Please support your child in learning these words so that they are confident in using these words independently in their work.
