Welcome to Year 2 2017

 

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.

Reading with your child in Key Stage 1

 

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:

Please learn these spellings for next week's spelling test. These singular words all have a ‘y’ at the end that needs to be changed to ‘i’ before ‘–es’ is added to make them plural. 

baby

babies

cherry

cherries

lorry

lorries

puppy

puppies

curry

curries

Look out for these words in your reading books! Can you think of any other words that have a similar spelling pattern? 

Please continue to practise the Y1 & Y2 common exception words alongside the weekly spellings. These are the words which do NOT follow the general phonetic rules.
