Meet the Teacher
Here is the PowerPoint shared with parents during the ‘Meet the Teacher’ event
Reading and/or talking about their reading to an adult for at least 20 minutes, daily. This is to be recorded in reading records. Reading records and reading books should be coming into school on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Reading records will be signed by teachers to check regular reading has occurred.
Spellings will be sent home weekly to be learnt and practiced daily. These will be tested in school on a weekly basis. The words chosen will be suitable for the ability of the child. When writing their spellings please encourage children to join their handwriting using cursive joins. Children will also be practicing the 100 words which will tested and sent home termly. Please practice these words daily as they are part of the Year Two Curriculum.
As you know, Maths homework is now based around each child’s Mental Maths objective. Ask your child what their mental Maths target is and encourage your child in revising for their next Mental Maths test. Keep supporting your child at home by finding fun ways to learn their new skill, for example use groups of pasta for repeated addition to develop your child’s confidence with multiplication tables, or use playing cards to play multiplication war. We test children weekly and once they have achieved Gold award (questions out of order and with missing digits) they receive a certificate in the celebration assembly, and a letter with their next Mental Maths objective will be sent home. Similarly, when your child reaches Bronze and/ or Silver, your child will receive a slip to celebrate their success so they can move on to practising the next skill. Enjoy practising these Mental Maths’ targets with your children!
