Homework in Year One will comprise of Reading and Spelling (please see the spelling page for more information on these). Your child will come home with a different RWI bookbag book each week along with a copy of the book they have been reading in school, as part of Read, Write, Inc. Being familiar with the text already, your children should be able to focus on building fluency and talking about what they read. There are some prompts within the book to help you support them with their comprehension. Please write in their Reading Record (orange) books when you have read with them so we can see how regularly they are practicing. We encourage children to read for ten minutes, 5 time per week.
In Year Two, children will complete Reading and Spellings like in Year One, and will also be encouraged to take part in Times Tables Rockstars. Your children can find their log-in details in the front of their Reading Records. The games can be accessed via the website or the app. Here children can build their speed and knowledge in 2s, 5s and 10s times tables (division facts too). This will help them have a solid foundation for learning the other timestables when they begin Key Stage Two. One additional task will be sent home weekly on Friday to be returned by Wednesday of the following week please. This task should take approximately 10-15 minutes and will be linked to class learning.
