Class Letters:



Reading books need to be in school every day. We will change books when needed. Your child will bring home 1 reading books which match their reading ability. They may also bring home a book to enjoy with an adult (not at correct level). We suggest children are heard read at least 5 times a week - little and often is very effective. Please comment in the accompanying yellow reading journal each time your child has read at home to an adult.

In Year 2 we do a Rocket Reading challenge. For every 10 reads completed, children move their rocket to the next planet  on our class display and receive a certificate in celebration worship. We would like to emphasise the importance of reading a book more than once, three times ideally. The first read should be to decode the words using their phonic knowledge; the second should be to increase their reading fluency, and the third time to develop their understanding of the story further. When reading in school, we always love spending time talking about the story with the children, this discussion is vital for developing comprehension skills.


Home Learning:

Home learning will be given each Friday. This will consist of both a spelling/handwriting activity and a mathematics activity. It is also expected that children practice their times table facts and Common Exception Word spellings using the website links below:

<< Additionally there is a list of home project ideas in the curriculum blog to the left side of this page. This is not a requirement, but may be a way you can support and make links to your child's school learning to home... <<
