Welcome to year 2!
The children's spellings will go out every Wednesday, they will then be tested the following Wednesday. These will relate to the phonics phase your child is in.
Homework goes out every Friday and should be in by the following Wednesday. Your child will either get a piece of numeracy or literacy homework which will be based on an area that has been covered in class. You should therefore only need to support your child if needed and not teach them anything new!
Your child will always be provided with a reading book. Once they have finished reading if you could simple write in their reading diary that they have finished the book we will ensure it is changed. When reading with your child it would be great if you could read with them often but only for around 15 minutes. Questioning them about what they have read, how the characters are feeling etc. will also help you grasp their understanding of what they have read. Children's books should be changed at least once a week.
Thank you for providing your child with a P.E kit (a white t-shirt, shorts and plimsolls). These should stay in school and go home at the end of every term for a wash!
If you need to speak to me about anything, feel free to catch me at the beginning or the end of the day!
