Home Learning


We expect children to be reading at home daily to enable them to apply their phonics and develop fluency. Please use: ‘What is … doing?’, ‘Who (action relating to a character)?’, ‘Why do you think…?’, ‘How do you know…?’ and ‘What do you think…?’ as sentence starters to help develop their understanding and comprehension. To extend their reading you could ask your child to write a sentence to answer a question that you have asked them.


Each week an overview will be posted to Class Dojo detailing the learning for the coming week, as well as suggestions of activities to do at home to consolidate and extend this learning.


Times tables are an important part of Maths. Throughout Year 2 and towards the end of Year 1 children will be learning about and solving problems involving their times tables. To support their rapid recall of these please encourage your child to use TTRockstars regularly.
