Homework and Reading
Children will be given spellings once a week, along with their reading. Reading books are usually changed once a week.
Children are expected to read at least three times a week with an adult. Please sign their reading diaries once you have listen to them to allow us to change their books. Children will receive three dojo's if they read three times at home.
After receiving five stickers will receive a 'reading reward'.
Each child also has a Guided Reading session once a week, in addition to daily Phonics work.
Year 1 spellings
Over the next few weeks we will be revisiting our phase 3 and 5 phonemes in letters and sounds time. Children will be tested on previous spellings given for those sounds. All children by the end of year 1 should be able to read and spell the tricky words below. Try practising them in addition to weekly spellings.
Year 2 maths homework
All year 2 children are expected to practise their times tables weekly on TT Rock Stars. All children in year 2 have a TT Rock Stars username and password which was sent home with them. They are currently practising their 2, 10 and 5 times tables. If they can do this confidently please encourage them to improve their time and begin to consider division number sentences.
