LEARNING LOGS-Children are expected to bring their Learning Logs to school EVERYDAY.
This will mean: I can keep accurate records of spellings that children are working on. I can see how frequently the children are learning at home. Staff can add comments about learning in class. We can communicate when necessary e.g. results of spelling and tables tests, any concerns that either of us may have and of course a place to celebrate all the fantastic achievements your children WILL be making.
The amount of homework set for your children will inevitably vary throughout the school year. However, there are basic things that the children will ALWAYS be expected to do EVERY WEEK.
1. To read at least 4 times during the week (everyday if possible) and record it in Learning Logs. Children can only do Reading Accelerated quiz when they fully understand their book.
2. Practise the next set of spellings to be checked and tested in school each week on a Monday. Children are also going to be practising High Frequency words and Common Exception words.
3. Practise the next set of times tables to be tested on a Friday.
4. TT Rockstars are set each week and tracked termly.
Here is the statutory list of Common Exception words in which children should know before leaving Year 2.
