How many times a week can you read ?

Can you read at least five times a week ?


Years 1 & 2


Reading: We ask that your child reads to you at least 5 times a week, please sign your child's reading record when you have read with them. Please see recommended reading lists for children aged 6 to 7, as suggested by the Book Trust, plus the website, where you can visit for further information about appropriate books for your child.


Spellings: Children will be tested on their spellings every Thursday. A new set of spellings will then be given out on Friday. The spellings your child will be given will be based on the sounds that they have been practising in their Phonics groups.  This way, your child will receive spellings that are more closely matched to their abilities. Please see the spelling list below for guidance on the spelling patterns that children  in year 1 and year 2 are expected to know.


Maths: It is important for your child to know their number facts within 10 and 20 e.g. 5 + 4 = 9 so 15 + 4 = 19.  They will also begin to learn their multiplication and division facts for 2, 5 and 10 multiplication tables.  This can be practised using the homework scheme below or through simple games and rhymes.  Your child will also be assigned regular homework tasks to support their Maths work using the scheme below.  We will send you a message to let you know when a new task has been allocated.



We now have a fantastic new homework scheme for maths.

You need to have a Username and password from your teacher.

Each half-term, we also set a voluntary homework project, based on the topic we are currently studying. This is an opportunity for children to be creative and really use their imagination.

Spellings - each set of spellings has the date it will be tested on. The spellings are based on various 'spelling rules', and taken from spellings tested in previous Key Stage 2 SATS tests.


At least 5 reads, signed by an adult and recorded in your reading record.



An activity is set each week to help your child learn their times tables facts as fluently as possible.
