Happy New Year!
We hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and a nice relaxing break. It has been great seeing the return of happy and smiling children who are eager to jump back into their learning.
Lots of reading certificates and house points were awarded last term, but lets try and make this term even better!
To extend their home learning and to ensure that your child is making the progress that is right for them we have made some suggestions below that are ways that you can help your child to develop their reading skills and number fluency.
Try and read with your child at least 3 times per week. It does not need to be a whole book at a time- make it manageable. Even 5 minutes every day will be beneficial to your child’s reading development!
In year 2 we are focusing on reading comprehension and understanding of different types of books. Please support your child by asking them questions about what they have just read e.g. Tell me what has happened so far? What do you think will happen next? Why do you think that? Who is your favourite character and why?
Tricky words are the common exception words which cannot be sounded out. Eg. was, said.
Please support your child by encouraging them to look at and ensure they can read the tricky words in the middle of their reading records.
Maths Fluency Practice
In maths we are working on the following times tables:
Your child needs to know these in and out of order. Please help your child to practise these at home.
