Homework is used to enhance and support the learning which takes place in school; it should not be a chore or battle. Little and often is the best way.
- Sharing a book- daily reading is important
- Common Exception Words Year 1 and Year 2
- Learning weekly spellings - Monster Phonics Spelling book
There may be additional homework which may take the form of research or investigation, or if a child needs more practice in Maths or English. However, this will be on a needs basis.
Reading Diaries will be checked weekly but please make sure that they are in school everyday so that your child can read with their teachers.
In class, we encourage children to read at home five times per week. Children who read five times per week will receive a dojo and be entered into our whole school five times reader competition.
Helping your Child to Read at Home
We will be following the Monster Phonics Scheme for teaching reading and spelling. Monster Phonics categorises the sounds in the English language into 10 monsters. These monsters will be a huge part of your child's learning. Please look at them at home and talk about the monsters together. Here is a link to a video that introduces the monsters: https://youtu.be/5u0N7LJIW0Q
