Newhey Community Primary  

Newhey Community Primary > Classes > Year 1 > Homework

Each child has a reading book which we encourage them to read every night at home. Reading books can be changed on a Tuesday and/or a Thursday if your child’s reading diary is signed and handed in. If the record is not signed we will not change the book in case the book has not been read yet. We are encouraging a 'reading for pleasure' focus throughout school and so the children get to choose which book they would like to read at home. If they choose a book that they have already read, that is perfectly fine as it's their choice.

Spellings will be given out on a Monday and tested on a Friday each week. The spellings will relate to the phonics work your child has done that week.


Learning Logs will be given out on Monday to be completed by the Friday of the next week. These are used to provide your child with a creative opportunity to develop their understanding of our topic work every two weeks. Please encourage your child to work on their Learning Logs in their preferred style and to their best ability.

EducationCity is also used for homework activities. If your child does not have their login details please let me know and I will provide another copy.

Note: We are aware that it is not always possible to access the Internet.

Please come and see us in Year One if your child has any problems with their homework or if you have any further questions.
