Ideas to support your Year 1 child:
- Read every day. Ask questions about what might happen next.
- Number recognition to up to 100.
- Practise spellings.
- Encourage addition and subtraction using:
- concrete objects (cubes, pens, books, toys etc)
- pictoral (drawing pictures to represent the numbers)
- abstract (eg 15 – 8 = 7)
- Read a story to your child.
- Practise the Phase 3 and Phase 5 phonics sounds that are in your home learning pack. Choose a phoneme, can you make a list of words which contain that phoneme? Eg ‘oa’ boat, goat, moat, soak, coat, cloak, toad, coach…..
