Information for Parents/Carers
Your child will be given homework which will enhance the curriculum that they are following in school and will help to improve their learning. We greatly appreciate parental support and encourage parents to become involved in their children’s learning. Research has shown that support from home significantly improves a child’s achievement in school. Homework is set on Doodle Learning on Fridays for completion by the following Thursday. The children will also have assigned tasks to complete on Doodle as well as their personalised learning. Children may also be sent additional homework or research projects linked to their current learning. This will be shared with parents on Class Dojo.
To help your child develop a love of reading, all children are given daily opportunities to read either during Read Write Inc Phonics, Shared Reading, Independent Reading or Reading for Pleasure sessions. Your child is encouraged to choose a book from our class library as well as bring their school reading book and reading record to school every day.
All children will read with the class teacher at least once a week. The expectation is that your child should read for 15 minutes per day to develop their pace, fluency and understanding of a range of texts. Children who are still accessing Read Write Inc Phonics will be sent home with books that link to their current learning and are 100% phonetically decodable. Once children have completed Read Write Inc, they will be assessed using Accelerated Reader and will be sent home with a book within their ability band. Each book has a linked quiz, your child will complete a short comprehension quiz after they have completed reading their home reading book.
The 2014 curriculum for Mathematics states that children are expected to know ALL times table facts up to 12 x 12 by the end of Year 4. Please encourage your child to revise all their multiplication tables using Times Table Rock Stars
Year 2 will have PE on Wednesdays or Fridays this half term. Please ensure that your child wears their PE kit on PE day.
