At Home

You could help your children by:

•    Reading and discussing their home reading books. Please do write in the reading record to let us know how they are doing at home.

•    Practising reading and writing high frequency and common exception words. please click here

•    Practising Year 2 Key Instant Recall Facts for Maths. By the end of Year 2, children are expected to know their 2, 5 and 10 times tables. Daily practise of this will help your children greatly.

•    Using Sound Mats to help with Spelling Sound Mats


Also aim to practice regularly on the Numbots/TTRS applications for Maths - I will be giving logins and passwords out within the first week.
