Maths homework will be focussed on children becoming fluent with the times tables they are learning in class. A letter has been posted on Dojo with further information.
Reading expectations remain the same. Please read with your child at least 3x a week and record this in their reading record. Reading records will be checked on a Friday. Prize available for the class with the most readers!
Spelling will be put on Class Dojo every Monday and tested the following Friday. Please find a link to techniques you could use to practise spellings.Reading
In Year 2, we really value the importance of reading at home and at school. It is really important for you to read with your child for at least 10 minutes each day if possible. Please can your children bring their book bag in daily and please make a note in your child’s reading record to indicate any home reading. We will be reading individually with your children at least once a week in class and will check their reading recording during this time. There will of course be multiple opportunities throughout the school day for whole class, small group and individual reading.
It's also great to share stories at home so reading aloud to your child is a great way of helping them enjoy stories, hear correct intonation and expression and gets their creativity going.
When you hear your child read, try to ask questions to help them practise their comprehension. Here are some examples:
-Who is your favourite character? Why?
-What do you predict might happen next?
-How do you think (insert character name) feels here?
-What was your favourite part of the story?
-Did this book remind you of anything else you have read before?
Friday Reading competition
We started in term 2, to award a golden ticket to the class who have the most children that have read at home (3x a week or more) that week. Please make sure you write in your child's reading record each time you hear them read. We will announce the winner each week on Class Dojo.
