Eastburn Junior And Infant School

Welcome to Year 1

Here you will find information about our class routines together with links to the half termly class letter, word lists, our topic web and suggestions for home learning. 


Please don’t hesitate to contact us either at the end of the school day, or via the office, if you have any questions or queries.

Whilst we don't set formal homework in Year 1, we do ask that you read with your child on a regular basis and support them to learn common exception words.  These are the same as 'tricky' words or in Read Write Inc., 'red' words  and are words where the usual spelling pattern doesn't apply, such as friend, said or some.   These are the National Curriculum recommended words a  Year 1 child should be confident spelling as they complete Year 1.  It would be wonderful if you could take the time to practice these words with your child perhaps 3-4 at a time.  

High frequency words are words that appear very often in written texts.   It is really important that children learn how to read these words as they will make up a large proportion of the words they will be reading in everyday texts.
