Topic: Just a reminder that a selection of exciting homework activities linked to our topic will be given out at the beginning of the term. The intention is that one activity is completed each week.
Any child who completes good quality homework linked to our learning will receive a jewel and team points.
Maths: The Ted’s teasers will continue as these are really helping to develop the children’s quick recall skills. The challenges gradually get harder when your child is ready to move onto them.
Spelling: The spellings that your child should know by the end of year 2 are stuck in the front of their homework book. The highlighted words are the ones that your child knows already. Please practise the unknown words frequently at home (we suggest 3-7 per week depending on how easy or tricky your child is finding it to learn them.) These are retested in term 2 and the updated list will be shown on your child’s sheet in their homework books so you can see how they are progressing with them.
There will also be spellings for the children on the Read, Write, Inc spelling programme. They are words that we are learning in our spelling sessions that focus on a particular sound or spelling rule. The list of all the words that we are learning will be sent home then you will be informed of the words that your child doesn’t know how to spell so you can incorporate them into the other spellings.
Reading: If you have read with your child, please make sure you have signed their reading record. Please feel free to write comments in the reading record book too so we can see how they are getting on with their reading at home. We have a changing box in the classroom so if your child’s book needs changing, they can put it there and we will endeavour to change it the same day.
Please always ask your child questions about their reading using the ideas on the sheet we sent home at the beginning of the year. Assessment of reading throughout school is focused on the understanding that your child has of the text they have read.
