West End Primary School and Nursery

Be Your West End Best

Year 1 Kingfisher Class


We set home learning through Tapestry each Thursday and ask that it is returned through the platform by the following Monday. These home learning experiences will be focused on reinforcing Key English and Maths skills and will be varied in content allowing for creativity, challenge and accessibility across the class.  These set homework tasks will be celebrated through a range of different approaches for example: comments by a member of staff; next steps for learning; viewing and sharing in class on screen or discussion with the children. 

If your child is having to self-isolate for any reason, use these resources on your first two days. When your child is well enough to access these first two days of resources let the school office know and I will ensure that your child is provided with subsequent days' work.


To help your child to read aloud with increased fluency, pace and understanding please share books daily.  Engaging in varied reading activities is recommended: listen to your child read their reading book; you read a section then your child reader a section of a longer book or story; read to your child and discuss key points in the story; share a picture book or bedtime story; talk about stories and retell favourites; research facts and information of topics of interest; develop a love of reading.


Books will be given out on a Thursday and we would like these returned on a Monday so they can be quarantined for 48 hours before being released from school again on Thursday. Book bags can be brought in daily so children can carry models etc. Water bottles can be carried by hand into the classroom. Snacks are provided by school daily and PE kit is to be worn all day on Mondays.

Keep up the amazing reading and use the following links to access your books.
