 The link provided shares with you the objectives that the children will be taught in year 1. This can also help you to support your child at home. 

End of year 1 expectations


At Bungay Primary we will be using cursive handwriting when the children are ready to start it.  Through handwriting lessons and early morning work they will practise the cursive form.  There is no rush for them to join their letters but you may like to practise at home too.  Use large resources like chalks, paints and whiteboard pens to learn the shape and flow of the letters.  Once they can write the cursive letters correctly then start to think of writing them smaller.



The following sound mats will demonstrate the sounds that the children should know.  They should know all of Phase 2 – 5 by the end of Year 1.





The children should be able to spell common exception words for their year group and are worth practising.  Spelling tests will happen in Phonics lessons and will test how the children apply a particular sound or spelling rule. Children will be sent home with spellings to practise ready for their weekly spelling test at the end of the week. 



PE – Our PE day is on a Monday and children need to come to school in their PE kits on that day.

If you would like to contact us you can ring the school office to make an appointment or email

Many Thanks
