Home Reading – Year 2: Y2 Parent Information re Home Reading. 

 

Dear Parents,

Thank you for your support as your children continue to settle back into school life. They have had many new rules and routines to learn and have done exceptionally well despite the changes.

Our weekly spellings will continue to consist of common exception words and words containing our focus phonics.  Please encourage your child to practise spelling these words daily using the school font (see our class webpage – Handwriting style). They could write the words in simple sentences. You can also find the Year 1 and 2 common exception words on our class page.

The children will continue to take home three books each Monday. The two colour-banded books are to be read independently to an adult. You might need to give reminders to sound out some words. During our class reading sessions, we ask the children questions about the text. This enables us to assess understanding. Ask your children questions about the books they read or about what they think might happen next. Please continue to write comments in your child’s reading log. The library book is to be read by an adult or older sibling. Some children might be able to read it independently. All books need to be returned on Friday to ensure that they have enough time in quarantine.

Please ensure that your child completes their MyMaths challenge each week. This will be set each Friday to be completed by the following Friday. Please continue to access Times Tables Rockstars. Please email [email protected] if you need your child’s login details.

If you have any queries regarding the curriculum, please email us at [email protected],sch.uk For all other enquiries, please email the office.

Many thanks,

Mrs Partridge and Miss Noll

Spellings of the Week

Half Term 

Dear Year 2,

We can’t believe how fast this half term has gone!  We are so proud of you all.  You have worked so hard since coming back in September.

If you do have any spare time during half term, please do some of the following…

Read your school library book, a book from home or one from the library;

Practise reading and spelling the common exception words;

Have a go at making up some nonsense words using the spelling patterns learned this term (see previous week’s spellings), then challenge your family to read them;

Do your MyMaths task and TTRS; and have a wonderful half term break!

Mrs Partridge and Miss Noll
