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 qeekly spellings at home. Spelling tests will be on Fridays 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.
  • Year 2 Times Table Rockstars - Your logins for Times Table Rockstars have remained the same. Please continue to play the games as much as possible.

Please support your child to fly like an eagle by taking the time to complete homework with them.Eagle in sky silhouette - Transparent PNG & SVG vector file

 

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/
