Together We Achieve



Children will learn spelling rules and Y1 / 2 words which are listed in the National Curriculum. Please support your child to hear and pinch the sounds on their fingers. You can also use the look, say, cover, write, check method for learning the spellings. Children should practise learning their weekly spellings and their meaning at home to reinforce class learning. We recommend 5 minutes each day to help secure the new knowledge. Spellings will be tested each Tuesday.


Maths fluency

Children should practise fluency and arithmetic activities for 5 minutes daily using a number of programmes including Times Tables Rock Stars, Numbots and White Rose1-minute maths (free app 1-minute maths app | White Rose Education). Activities will be set on TT Rock stars to complete weekly.


At the end of Year 2, children should be able to fluently recall  the 10, 5 and 2 times tables. 


We love stories! A love of reading is encouraged at school through the texts we teach and the lovely stories we share. It is a joy to hear your child talk so enthusiastically about a book, comic, newspaper, graphic novel, encyclopedia or the Bible! Children should read at least 5 times weekly for 10 minutes to an adult at home and record this in their reading diary.


Half term Project

Each half term, children will be given a half term project to work on. This will vary each half term, and may include research, well-being or creative learning opportunities.
