Below is some useful information about our learning in Wren Class. There are also some links that will help with your child's learning at home.
Our Class Saint
Our class Saint: St Bernadette
Feast Day: 16th April
Patron Saint of ill and poor people.
Jesus came on earth to be my model. I want to follow him and walk generously in his footsteps.
Each Friday the children will get a new set of spellings to practise for a test the following Friday. These spellings are taken from the Floppy's Phonics Scheme as well as the National Curriculum statutory spelling list. Please help your child to practise these at home.
Each spelling list is practised daily in the class phonics session and children can continue to build on this using the Spelling Shed App below. We encourage children to access this at least five times a week. You can find the login to this, inside your child's reading record.
Phonics and Reading
In Wren class, we take part in daily phonics lessons, following the schools phonics scheme 'Floppy's Phonics'. Within these sessions, children practise reading, writing and saying a range of phonemes and trigraphs. These phonemes are then used to create spelling lists so that the children can continue to practise these sounds.
In Year 2, some children will have the opportunity to retake the Phonics Screening test. This will be completed in June, you will receive a letter from the class teacher to inform you if your child will be participating in this.
We encourage daily reading within Year 2 for at least 10-15 minutes per day. The children have the opportunity to change their books three times a week. This gives them chance to read a wide range of genres. Please ensure your child's reading record is signed each time you read with them. We ask that the reading record is signed at least once per week.
If your child is reading books that you have at home, please feel free to share these with us and record in the reading record.

Each week, children will receive one piece of English homework and one piece of Maths homework. Both of these pieces will link to a topic we have been doing in class or revision of a previous terms topic. These are given out on a Friday and are to be returned the following Thursday. Please ensure your child returns their homework book promptly.
In addition to this, children are asked to read daily and practise their weekly spellings via Spelling Shed. Children in Year 2 can also access Times Table Rockstars to regularly practise their 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables. Please try to access both of these at least two-three times per week.
Dancing Through the Decades
KS1 have been learning about how childhoods have changed in their history topic, 'Childhood Then and Now'. They had the opportunity to see how dances have changed over the decades in a workshop. Take a look at some of their moves below.
