How can you help your child at home?

Reading at home

How can you help your child with reading at home? Here are two resources below, which will help you support your child with reading.

Use phonics to help your child read

Maths at home

In Year 2 we spend time practising addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and missing number problems. At home you could support your child by giving them various calculation sentences. Find an example of an arithmetic paper below. This is what your child will practise in school.

Arithmetic Test

By the end of Year 2 we aim for children to be secure with their 2x, 5x and 10x tables. You could use these websites below to practise these.

Our learning this term is.....

'On the Farm' and 'Olympics'

This half term we will be have a big focus on plants linked to our ’On the Farm’ topic. We will understand what a plant is and how it survives. During our science learning, we will plan and carry out an experiment to understand if all plants need water and light to survive.

In Summer 2 we will have more of a focus on geography and history and will research and find out about the countries in the Olympics and will  learn about these events in history. During this learning we will develop our maps skills and will identify similarities and differences between countries.
