    The importance of reading at home cannot be overstated. Develop a love of reading is a huge passion of Pemberley’s and it is key that children begin this journey as soon as possible. Reading books are provided to support children with their Phonics development, focusing on sounds and tricky words covered during the week. Books will be changed once the book has been read twice in full. It may be the case that a child receives the same book on more than one occasion, however that is simply to ensure that sounds and words are continuously practiced. Some children may struggle to read these books and may require adult support whilst others can read them fluently with an apparent degree of ease. In all cases, encourage children to discuss and explain parts of the text to stimulate curiosty and imagination. It would be fantastic if children could read additional books at home to broaden their experience of reading and embed that love of books.


    During Year 1, pupils are continuously developing their number mastery and their ability to work with numbers up to 20. They will explore numbers up to 100, however the focus on addition and subtraction (and the relating number facts) will be based between 0-20.


    Towards the end of Year 1 (within June), children will undertake the statutory Phonics Screening test, which aims to assess pupil’s ability to decode and blend words. In order to develop your child’s ability to read and write and prepare them for the Phonics screening, we follow the Little Wandle Phonics scheme of work*.
    *Little Wandle is currently being introduced to Pemberley and more information will be available shortly.

    Clubs and Super Saturdays:

    After school clubs, and Super Saturday sessions will be an opportunity for kids to practice their Phonics, Maths and Writing skills dependent on progression throughout the term. More information will be available nearer the time but please note that this will provide a great chance for children to develop key skills whilst engaging in fun, enjoyable and physical activities.


    Wonderful Work
