Learning in Year 1

The expectation in Year 1 is that: 

  • All children know their number bonds to 10, 20 and 100. They are able to apply their understanding to different maths problems.
  • Children will know all of the phonics up to Phase 5. At the end of Year 1, children will complete a Phonics Screening Check.

Please see this term’s curriculum newsletter for information on what topics we are studying.




Generally, homework will go out on a Friday and need to be handed in by the following Friday.

Maths will often be set on Mathletics.

English will include spellings and written work (this may be a reading comprehension or grammar work).

We would encourage children to try to read for at least 10 minutes a day.

We will also send creative homework out throughout the year.   


A year 1 phonics meeting was held to share phonics sounds and expectations in year 1. The resources are below:
