Today you are going to continue to revise alternative pronunciations of graphemes. have a go at the game 'Cheeky Chimps' below!

We are not setting spellings this week as it is the last week of term. If you are wanting to do anything further, we would encourage you to go through your previous spelling tests and practise any spelling patterns that you may not have grasped.


Please also see below the list of Year 1 Common Exception Words that children should know how to spell by the end of Year 1. 


Please also use the Phonics section on the Year 1 page to help ensure that children can identify all sounds from Phases 2-5 and can apply these to spelling unknown words. 


Please also use the Phonics section to practise reading and spelling the tricky words in each Phase.

Reading Comprehension


Have a go at reading the information in the Reading Comprehension activities below.

There are three levels to choose from for this activity. Please choose the level most appropriate for your child. There's some guidance on how tricky each level is in the image below.

Children should read the text and then answer the questions, giving as much detail as possible. Sometimes they are asked to answer in full sentences, so please encourage them to do this where appropriate. 

The reading task guidance gives you an outline of the type of questions used in these comprehension exercises - and some ideas of the type of questions that you can use when reading at any time with your children at home.
