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 your child will then have 2 weeks to do their homework (the date it should be in by will always be on their homework). Their homework will be linked to their current topic and all numeracy and literacy will have been covered during the week, so you should not have to teach them anything new, just support if needed! At the front of their book is a hundred square which may be useful for the numeracy part of their homework. For research based homework your child is welcome to present their work anyway they wish, be is, PowerPoint, poster, painting or written facts!
Your child will always have a reading book. Once they have finished reading simply write in their reading diary that they have finished the book and we will make sure it is changed. When reading with your child it would be great if your could read with your child little and often! Around 15 minutes would be great! Questioning them about what they have read and how the characters are feeling will help you grasp their understanding of what they have read. Your child should change their book 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.
If you need to speak to us about anything, feel free to catch us at the beginning or end of the day!
