Welcome toBarden Primary SchoolONLY MY BEST IS GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME

Weekly Homework


A homework task will be sent home each Friday.  This will be an English, Maths or Phonics task.   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.




We have added some fabulous photos from our recent visit from Zoolab to the photos section of our class page.

It would be great if children could draw some pictures with labels, or create a poster of their favourite animal from the day, and write some sentences which we will share with the rest of the class after the holidays. These can be emailed or brought in to class.

Prizes will be awarded for super work!


Below are some great links to wonderful websites which can help your child to progress with their learning whilst in year one.

If you need any further advice/guidance, please speak to Mrs Stansfield or Mrs Hart.


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.
