Home Learning Expectations

In Class 2, we expect children to read on a regular basis and to practice all their phonic sounds (these can be found on Google Classroom). They can also access Numbots and Times Table Rock Stars to increase fluency in Maths. 

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”

Dr. Seuss 


In Class 2 we start by learning our Phonics knowledge and applying this when reading books. Over the 2 years, the children will be encouraged to blend sounds together to then read words. The children will build up a bank of sight words so reading will become effortless for them. Over the 2 years, the children will become more of a secure and fluent reader. The children can choose a reading scheme fiction or non-fiction book and take it home to read with their family. Once it has been read, it can come back to school and the child can choose another book they would like to read. Each child will have a reading diary, keeping a record of all the books they have read over the year. The children will be bringing books home that are part of our reading scheme and will gradually cover a variety of books. As well as reading, the children need to understand what they have read. They will be given a list of questions that can be asked about all stories they read at home, ensuring they have understood the text. 

Reading records are handed in every day and books will be changed twice a week.


Maths is taught using the Mathematics objectives from the National Curriculum as well as White Rose, which allows us to challenge the children’s knowledge. The children will be solving calculations using manipulatives as well as increasing their confidence using a number line, identifying where numbers sit to 100 etc. The children will be challenged to answer many equations and learn to reason their answers. The children have access to Numbots and TTRS to help support Maths fluency. 


Spellings for KS1 are an essential aspect of early literacy education. In school, spellings are taught through engaging English lessons and dedicated Spelling, Punctuation, and Grammar (SPaG) sessions. These sessions focus on building foundational skills in spelling, helping young learners grasp phonetic patterns, sight words, and spelling rules. No spellings are sent home but it is always great to practice common exception words with your child as well as looking at the phonic sounds to help spelling. 

Additional Support at Home

Engaging in conversations with your child about their school day is incredibly important for their overall development and academic success. By taking the time to ask about their experiences, challenges, and achievements, you demonstrate your interest in their education and well-being.

Supporting question and discussion sessions fosters open communication, allowing your child to express their thoughts, feelings, and concerns about school. This dialogue provides valuable insights into their learning environment, helping you identify any areas where they may need additional support or encouragement.

Ultimately, talking to your child about their school day not only promotes their academic progress but also enhances their social and emotional development, building confidence, resilience, and a lifelong love for learning.
