Year 1 - Ash Class

Welcome to Ash Class!!

This Term's Curriculum Newsletter

The children in Ash Class have been working very hard on their phonics recently to prepare for the upcoming Phonics Screening Check, starting on the 6th June.


Please work with your child on their phonics at home over the Half Term to give them the best chances for success. I have linked above the Read Write Inc online phonics reading videos that the children can work through!


Many thanks

Miss Cox :)





Homework this week has been set on MyMaths. There are 4 new tasks to complete, and if you still have outstanding tasks to complete - please endeavour to complete these. A friendly reminder that I do check which tasks have been completed!


Please continue to read online using Oxford Reading Buddy, as well as reading the school books sent home with your child. If your child needs to change their book, please remind them to do so in the morning!


As mentioned above, please continue working on Phonics with your child over the half term in preparation for the Phonics Screening Check!


If you have any questions about the homework and reading, please come and catch me at the gate either at the beginning or end of the day and I will endeavour to answer any questions you may have!


From Miss Cox x


Please use Oxford Reading Buddy to read a range of books at home, there is even a quiz for you to complete at the end of the story! These quizzes are important and should be done as independently as possible.

We look forward to hearing about all the books you have read!


From Miss Cox x 


Remember to write the books you have read on Oxford Reading Buddy into your reading diaries.



Please check the tasks regularly as they may be added during the week as we learn new concepts. The tasks should be completed as independently as possible, and I look forward to seeing all the amazing scores that you manage to get!!
