How to help at home

Below are links to crib sheets which we have created to help with how we teach maths, reading and writing at school and ways you can help at home. If you need any further information, please speak to your class teacher.

In Term Three our Maths focus is multiplication and division. Please find the crib sheet below with how to support this learning at home:

Recommended reads for Year Two children - Recommended Books to Read for year two.docx

Please take a look at the Sounds Write section on our website, which includes links to a series of videos about how to help with reading at home.


Reading is the most important activity you can do at home with your child. Please try to read for 10 minutes each day, but at least three times a week. This will help your child to learn new vocabulary, read fluently and hopefully develop a love for books.

PurpleMash and Mathletics homework will also be set, and we will start this once the children are settled into Year Two.
