Homework Expectations 

Homework | The Forest High School

The children in Year 1 will be set their homework every Wednesday and it is to be completed by the following Tuesday.

Maths - A weekly Freckles activity will be set. This is personalised to your childs indivdual needs for practice. 

Reading - Children are expected to read daily and record this in their reading record book. Planners are collected each week and checked by an adult when reading 1:1 with them. More information can be found on the Phonics page.

Additional books and quizzes linked to your childs phonics level can be accessed on Oxford Reading Owl.

Spelling -  Please see Tapestry to see which common exception words are being focused on during each week. 

Creative homework tasks - Your child willl also have a sheet in their reading diary and on Tapestry which details some creative things they could also complete at home. These will be linked to the topics they are covering in school. We would love you to send some pictures of these completed tasks so that we can add them to our class page and share them with the rest of the school. 

The table is attached to the bottom of this page if you can't find it in their reading record.
