Learning at Home
The most important home work is sharing a book with your child daily. If your child reads at home please make sure that you record this in the home learning diary as children are collecting stickers each time they read. A full book mark will mean a visit to Mrs Lagares and a special treat! Some children have already started collecting their prizes.
Spellings – Tricky words/Common Exception Words
Some words just need to be learnt by heart as you can’t use phonological knowledge to spell them. Please make sure that you are spending time each week to practise at least 3 words. This will give your child so much confidence when writing. We will be re-testing these words half termly and feeding back on their progress. These words were handed out more recently in Year 1. Please speak to your child’s class teacher if you need another copy.
Weekly Home Learning
From now until May, on Fridays, we will be sending home either Maths or SPaG (spelling, punctuation and grammar) work for your child to complete. This is to support the learning we have been doing in class, however we do not want this to be a chore, as it is not compulsory.
We do not expect this to be handed back in; it is to be kept at home as a way of understanding the methods and techniques we teach your child in school.
For each piece of work, there will be a Year 2 example of how we would work out a given question. Underneath, there will be an opportunity practise this with fluency and finally, a SATs based (or similar) question at the end to see how we apply this knowledge later on.
