Class Two homework support
Here are some ideas to further support your child's learning.
This week I am trialling a website called Times Tables Rock Stars. The children should hopefully be able to access this from home until the beginning of February. I will send their login information in their homework folders. Year One parents, I am aware that for some of the children it is a little early for them to be trying to learn their times tables, however, please encourage them to practise counting in 1s, 2s, and 10s. You could use pasta shapes, grains of rice etc to show them visually what they are doing when multiplying. If they are ready, then short bursts of practise will really help them. Year Two parents, please keep encouraging your children to practise, as the more secure they are before moving up to Class Three, the easier maths will be for them.
In Literacy this week, we are focussing on non-fiction texts and our grammar work will be based around using commas to separate items in a list and using apostrophes to show possession. If you wish to support your child with this, that would be great.
Please can I remind everyone that although it is not written specifically on their homework sheet, the children are expected to read regularly with an adult at home and to practise their spellings. Could you please also encourage the children to write neatly in their homework as we are working very hard in class to develop the children’s pride in their written work.
Thank you, as always, for your support.
