Homework in Year 1 includes regular Reading, Spellings to learn and a Learning Log task.


Spelling tests are on a Friday. Children are given words linked to the sounds they are focussing on in Phonics groups. These will be given out on a Friday and tested the following week.

Learning logs

Learning Logs will be given out for the children to complete their homework in. The children will decide the tasks that they are set, as a class, and will then have 2 weeks in which to complete this homework in any way they wish - the more creative, the better!

Learning Log homework is issued on a Wednesday and will  be handed in 2 weeks later. On that Wednesday, the children will have a chance to share their Learning Log work with their teacher and their peers, and a new task will be handed out.

Have a look at a few examples to give you some ideas.
