Number Formation

We would like you to practise forming numbers correctly at home. This means you need to think about making sure they are facing the right way and are formed carefully so that they can’t be mistaken for a different number. If you are writing 2 digit numbers you need to check that you have got the digits in the right order so that numbers like 12 don’t look like 21!

Here are some activities that you can download and do at home to help you practise.




School Council Homework

In the next couple of weeks, we are going to be electing our new School Council members. For your homework we would like you to write a speech, with your grown ups, to present to the class about which school council you would like to be part of and why you should be elected.

The school councils we have are:

  • Worship
  • Fun and Games
  • Eco
  • Teaching and Learning
  • Healthy Helpers

Tuesday 5th January (morning)

Good morning Pimhill and a Happy New Year.

I hope you all had a good Christmas, I was looking forward to hearing all about your holidays  but hopefully you can tell me about it by sending me a picture and some writing about your holiday.

Remember when you are trying to write a word say the word slowly (segment) and write the sounds you can hear. Remember between each word you need a finger space and think carefully how you write the letters.

Year 1 Remember your sentences need a capital letter to start and end with a full stop. Names also need a capital letter.

Today I will be sending you a user name and teams password so that we can meet on the screen and you can upload work and your parents can message me.

You can email me your pictures and writing to

I will then send you a message back.

Home work for Pimhill Year 1 until half term

Homework Year 1 Pimhill

Please practice the activities daily

The children have all come home with sounds in a wallet from phase 3 letters and sounds. The aims for the next few weeks are for the children to:

Recognise the sounds

Recognise the sounds in words

Read the sounds in words

Write the sounds

Write the sounds in words.

Here are some ideas how to help your child

Recognise the sounds-

Sort the sounds into 2 sets ones your child knows, one your child doesn’t know. Go through the ones your child knows saying the sound and doing the action. When your child is really confident add one or two from the set your child doesn’t know. Only add more your child is really confident, they should feel that they are successful at this.

Reading the sounds in words words

The phonics play website at the moment has free access to 3 games picnic on pluto, dragon’s den and buried treasure

On here you can practice reading words using the different games. You can pick individual sounds so pick the ones your child is confident with and one or two that they are not. The games are very simple but the children love them. The children have to read words with the sounds in and sort them into real and fake words. In class we always get the last one wrong (on purpose) as the characters to a different action.

The children also have reading books with these sounds in.

Writing the sounds

Say the sound and get the children to write it. Again start with the ones your child is confident with and only add one or two new ones at a time. The children love using a small white board and pen for this. I noticed Tesco had some for £3 or I have some old ones I could give out. Pen and paper is fine too.

Writing the sounds

Just the same as writing the sounds say words with the different sounds. A list can be found here  Look for phase 3 words and scroll down to find the sound you are working on. Work on at least 2 different sounds so that they children have to think and remember what each one looks like.


We will be working on this too in school but a bit of daily individual practice at home will make all the difference.

Please add pictures or comments on Tapestry so I can praise the children and see what they are up to.

Any questions please ask. I could do a phonics sessions on teams if people want one.

Many thanks for your support

Joanne Foster

Thurday 16th July

Good Morning Pimhill,

Its the last day of the school year  and what a funny year it has been. Over the last few months I have missed you all. Its been very strange not seeing you everyday and listening to everything you want to tell me. I have missed the funny things you do and of course I have missed helping you learn new things.

I will see you all in September whether you are in Haughmond or Pimhill.

You are all superstars so here is a certificate for you to print.( you will have to do the writing)

home learning certificate

Have a great summer, stay safe and be good

Mrs Foster

Continue with the maths and English that was set on Monday and finish of your information booklet for your new year group.



Wednesday 15th July

Good morning Pimhill,

Continue with handwriting and spellings set on Monday and the White Rose Academy Maths.

Over the next 2 days have a go at making an information booklet for your next class. If it’s me I sure there are things I don’t know about you. If it’s Mrs Gregory she would like to get to know you.

Here are some ideas.

For my new teacher


Have a great Day

Mrs Foster
