Year 1 English
Find out about the topics your child will learn in their Year 1 English lessons and discover Year 1 English worksheets that will help your support learning at home in all the core areas, such as writing sentences using correct punctuation, forming letters correctly and simple spelling.
You’ll also find lots of information and resources to help your child prepare for the Year 1 Phonics Check that takes place in the Summer term of Year 1.
The Phonics screening check is used to test children's reading and phonics skills and what they've learnt in their first two years at school. Find out what you need to know about the Phonics screening check and get an idea of what your child will be asked to do in the June test by looking through the official past papers for 2012, 2013 and 2014. Then check out all the practice checks we have created.
Reading, writing and spelling practice for KS1 children means wordsearches, matching games, writing missing posters and more! Our Year 1 English booster pack covers all the main literacy topics your child will learn in the first year of KS1. Just one worksheet a day will offer a fun revision session to help them with their handwriting, phonics and punctuation – and why not let your child organise a little party to make the 'writing for purpose' activity even more exciting?
The Year 1 English Learning Journey programme contains 40 worksheets that roughly match the order that your child is being taught topics at school during the year. Work through them in order to be sure your child keeps up with all the core areas of learning they need to have mastered by the end of Year 1 or, if you are a subscriber, we'll send you an email every Wednesday with recommendations for a worksheet to complete that week. There are also 24 fun worksheets that we'll send you during the school holidays!
