Reading

 

In Year Two we encourage the children to read every day  or at least three times a week. The home school reading books must come into school daily. The children have the opportunity to change their reading book every day and we will keep you updated when your child has read with an adult in school.  We really value your comments, so please sign and comment whenever your child has read.  In addition, the children have an opportunity to receive certificates for the amount of times they read at home as part of our new Race to Read challenge!

 

We are also introducing ERIC TIME (Everyone Reads In Class) across the school.  ERIC Time will happen every Friday afternoon for ten minutes.  To encourage and inspire the children to enjoy reading, all children and adults in class will be reading at this time.



Home Learning
Children will have Comprehension and Spelling Detectives Home Learning sent home each week on a Friday which is due to be returned by the following Wednesday. They will also bring home times table practice each Monday in preparation for a quiz each Friday.
Each child has their own folder for their home learning,
please ensure this is returned each week .
