Welcome toBarden Primary SchoolONLY MY BEST IS GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME

Weekly Homework


A selection of activities will be set at the beginning of each half term.  These will be stuck in your child's purple homework book.  Please complete at least one of these activities but if you would like to do more that would be wonderful.  Please feel free to support your child with their work but encourage them to have a go on their own too. 

Please ensure any writing is completed in pencil.




Everyday children in year 1 learn about Letters and Sounds. Your children will work in a group with a member of staff from year 1 to help them with their reading and writing.
Below are some of the sound mats and the tricky words which you may come across.

The Phase 2 sound mat is in the front of your child's reading record and as we move through the phases we will add the others.

If you have access to a printer you could print out the tricky words and the high frequency words and place them around your home to help/encourage your child to read these.

If you would like us to print a copy of any of these please make a note in your child's reading record.

  • Please do not write in capital letters for your child, use capitals only to start proper nouns eg. the child's own name or at the beginning of a sentence.
  • Each letter starts on the line and all letters are formed without lifting the pencil from the paper.
  • Please note-we teach the sounds that the letters usually make, rather than an emphasis on the names of the letters.
