Astwood Bank Primary School

"A centre of learning and opportunity"


Homework this week will be paper based and handed out today (25th January) and due in on Wednesday 1st February. This week we have been looking at what is a good friend and what is a bad friend and the homework is getting the children to think about what qualities they want in their friends.


Dear Parents,

Quick update on reading, as they are building their skills and beginning to decode (sound out) less please try to read all books more than once to encourage fluency of reading. Each time they do this the words they read by sight should increase each time.

Thank you for your support

From the Year 1 Team



We are now going to be setting Purple Mash homework weekly (every Wednesday) for the children to complete (they will have the week to complete it). The children know how to use Purple Mash so they will know how to find their ‘2Do’s’. We have stuck their Purple Mash log ins into their reading diary. We encourage you to let your child log on themselves. 

Many Thanks

The Year 1 Team
