Home Reading
Children in Reception, Year 1 and 2, read fully decodable books with an adult 3 times per week during our ‘Reading Practice’ sessions. These books are then sent home for children to build their reading fluency and showcase their developing skills and phonetic knowledge to their parents/carers. 
These 3 reading practice sessions each have a different focus; decoding, prosody and comprehension. Our reading books in Reception, Y1 and Y2 are 'Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised Big Cat books'. 

The children also have access to Collins e-books (links to the website can be found below). The login details for this website can be found in your child’s reading record. 

Once the children in Year 2 have become confident, fluent readers they progress on to 'accelerated reader'. Accelerated Reader allows the children to read a book that is at their level and to develop their comprehension. Each Accelerated reader book must be read 3 times before the children can complete their quiz. This is to help with their comprehension. 
As well as their matched phonics/ accelerated reader book, children will also bring home a 'sharing' library book to promote reading for pleasure.
We encourage you to support your child with their reading and expect every child to read at least four times a week at home and have their reading record signed each time.
Should you have any questions about phonics and early reading, please speak to a member of the Year 2 Team.


All children now have access to Times Table Rock Stars so they have the opportunity to practice their times tables in a fun and engaging way. Login details can be found in your child’s home learning book.

Here are some other great websites to use:

Concept Activities

Your child has the opportunity to complete activities linked to their current concept, if they wish. Below is a menu for them to choose from. They may choose as few or as many as they want to complete. If they do complete any of the concept activities this half term, please can your child bring them in on the date listed on the homework menu.
