Year Two

Reading at Home

As a school we ask that every child makes time at home to read and be listened to by an adult. In Year 2 we would like our children to read for 10 minutes every day. Your child has the opportunity to choose a book at their appropriate level which is to be taken home and returned to school every day, whether the book has been finished or not. While you or another adult are listening to your child read please take the time to make any comments in your child’s reading record and sign and date it so we can strengthen our communications between school and home. The children will earn stickers for every time they have had their reading record signed. Once the sticker chart is filled the children will choose a prize.


A spelling list and set of times tables will be sent home on a Friday each week. These tasks will be age/level appropriate for your child. The sheets are to be returned every Friday.
