Useful Resources for Year 1

Phonics is an important part of Year one to help your child develop as a reader and writer. Here is a link to the sound mats. It is a good idea to practise reading and writing these sounds regularly at home. 

On the PhonicsPlay website you can access some games and activities, to support your child’s learning in Phonics, for free. 

Letter formation

Download the letter formation mat to help your child practise forming their lower case letters correctly. 

Words that Year 1 children need to be able to read and spell

As children work their way through the Year 1 phonics curriculum they will have plenty of practice reading and spelling the words found in the lists below. Please continue to support them at home by regularly practising these words with them. 


Whole units of work (we can direct you to these in the event of a pod closure) can be found at the Oak National Academy website.
