How you can help at home
We ask that you read with your child 5 times a week. This only needs to be a 10 minute session and you don’t have to finish a whole book every time. Please record any reads you have done with your child in their reading record as we will be continuing the reading bug challenge. Please note we will count a maximum of 7 reads a week.
Your child will have their reading book changed each week and will be given a book matched to their phonic level. We are encouraging the children to become fluent readers so please read the same book several times until your child is able to read it fluently without having to decode words.
Your child will also have one library session each week where they are able to choose a library book. The children have free choice with their library books.
Reading does not have to be limited to the books children bring home from school. It can include any books they have at home, reads with siblings or reading books from the local library.
The children will be continuing with maths planets this year and will carry on from their end point in Year 1. Please practise your child’s maths facts at least 3 times a week. If your child is stuck on a level for more than 4 weeks then we will intervene at school.
To see example questions for each level please visit the maths curriculum section of our website.
Your child should have the termly overview stuck in their homework books.
They will then be tested on these spellings each Friday. The tests will be stuck into their yellow homework books so you can see how they have got on.
The spellings will contain the new sound patterns that we will be learning in class and are a way of reinforcing these spelling rules. Please practise at least 3 times each week with your child.
