vPlus Parents Workshop – How to help your child with homework when they  seem to know more than you! | Potential Plus UK


Homework for both Year 1 and 2 will consist of: 

  • Spelling practice - Please learn to spell and read the weekly spellings at home. Spellings follow the Monster Phonics Scheme and we learn the sounds in class each week. Spelling tests will be on Mondays and scores will be written in children's reading diaries.

  • Reading – Reading at home is extremely important for children’s fluency, comprehension and love of reading. Please read at least five times and week and record it in children’s reading diaries. Books will be changed weekly when diaries have been signed to say that children have read. Children who have read 5 times a week will receive a house token to put towards their house's points.

In June, Year 1 will take part in a Phonics Screening Check. Due to the COVID-19 school closures, Year 2 children will be required to take the Phonics Screening Test in the second half of the Autumn term. They will be required to read 20 real and 20 psuedo words containing the sounds that we have been learning in school. Please use the activities below to help your child at home. Monster Phonics also have a range of phonics games available: https://monsterphonics.com/games/ and free worksheets/wordsearches that children could complete at home: https://monsterphonics.com/free-phonics-worksheets/
