During Year 1, children develop their phonics skills to help them tackle more complex words in their reading and writing. They will likely start having regular spelling tests to help reinforce their learning.
At the end of Year 1 all children must sit the Phonics Screening Check, a tricky reading test. Preparation is vital!
In maths, children practise counting and play number games to help them solve mathematical problems. They will also begin to practice rudimentary arithmetic calculations such as addition and subtraction on a daily basis.
Buy some of our Year 1 workbooks, study books and practice papers to help reinforce your child's learning at home and prepare for the Phonics Screening Check.
