HOW YOU CAN SUPPORT YOUR CHILD AT HOME
When your child wants to write a sentence, encourage them to repeat the sentence aloud several times so that they internalise the sentence and are using the correct sentence structure. They may wish to say it in different, funny voices, as well as count the number of words in the sentence.
Encourage your child to use ‘fred fingers’ to spell phonetically plausible words (green words) in their sentence, listening carefully to their sounds. Allow your child to refer to their speed sound chart for reference and to ensure they choose the correct sound.
You may need to support your child with any tricky ‘red’ words in their sentence. You can practise spelling red words using the ‘cover spell check’ method.
Finally, remind them to always read back over their sentence after writing it. Get them to self-check; have they remembered capital letter and full stop? Have they remembered to leave a finger space in between each word? Have they remembered all the words in their sentence? Are most of the words spelt correctly?

Thank you for completing some fantastic literacy homework! We appreciate that at this early stage in Year 1 it is difficult to encourage our little ones to write. This task needs only be a few sentences reflecting on their understanding of the story. If your child is not yet ready to write, they could draw a picture or story map to show their understanding. This could then be annotated by an adult with a direct comment from your child explaining their understanding of the story.
If you have any questions regarding homework, please don't hesitate to speak to your class teacher after school.
Below are some images of Year 1 homework to provide inspiration in how to approach the Literacy tasks.
