Spellings

Each Friday the children will get a new set of spellings to practice for a test the following Friday. These spellings are taken from the Little Wandle Phonics Scheme as well as the National Curriculum statutory spelling list. Please help your child to practice 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.  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.

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.
