Please return all library and reading books. No more books will be sent home this year. 

 

We will be sending home the children’s books this week. Every year all class teachers need to keep a sample of books from their year group. We will let the children know if we are keeping their books and these will be returned this time next year.

Home Learning 

Recent and extensive educational research has found that homework for primary aged children has minimal impact unless it reinforces learning and regularly allows children to rehearse and practise skills and facts e.g. times tables and spellings.

 

Reading

Children are expected to read at home regularly (at least 10 - 15 minutes daily) and to discuss their reading with an adult at home to develop language and comprehension. Reading Record books must be brought into school every Monday to be checked. It may be that the Reading Record is checked more than once during the week. Children are able to change their reading book whenever they need to. Children may also borrow books from the Infant Library. We encourage the children to share their library book with an adult at home as well.

Key words/ Spelling

Please practise reading and writing your spellings. Make sure that you know the meaning of each word. There is a Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check sheet below that you can use to help you. Spellings will be tested through a dictation each week. Spelling words will be added below on a Monday and the dictation will take place the following Monday. 

 

This week’s spellings:

We have now finished all the Y2 spelling patterns. Please recap the words from previous weeks and the common exception words. The Y3 and Y4 common exception words are attached below if you want to have a sneak preview.

Handwriting

Here is a copy of our handwriting guidelines. Belmont follows an adapted version of the Nelson scheme. In Year 2, once individual letter formation is accurate, the children are encouraged to start using cursive/joined up writing during lessons.

Number Facts and Times Tables

You can print your child's times tables challenge to practise at home. All children are starting on Level 1. Year 2 will do the times table challenge every Friday and the children will bring home their challenge sheet to share with you.
