Things you can do at home


Know doubles of numbers 1 to 5

1 + 1 = 2        2 + 2 = 4       3 + 3 = 6      4 + 4 = 8     5 + 5 = 10

and begin to know doubles of numbers 6 to 10

6 + 6 = 12     7 + 7 = 14     8 + 8 = 16    9 + 9 = 18      10 + 10 = 20

Practise counting in 1s forwards and back. Can you count to at least 20? Can you count back from 20 to 0?

Can you say 1 more or 1 less than any number to at least 20?

Can you count in 10s?

Learn to count in 2s and 5s



Reading & Writing

Read for 10 minutes every day! Reading is good for you. It relaxes you, it takes you to exciting places, it teaches you new things and it is fun.



RWI sounds - Can your child recognise and use the RWI sounds that we use as the building blocks for reading and writing? Children are taught to recognise the sounds within words and use these for reading and spelling. e.g. sh o p  becomes shop,     p ar k becomes park

By the end of Year 1 most children should be able to read and spell these common words, they do not fit the phonics rules so children need to learn to 'just know it'.
