KS2

 Reading

 

Reading is wonderful and something we feel passionately about as a school. When children develop a love for reading and read a wide range of material regularly, learning across the curriculum is impacted positively. At St Levan, we regularly update our libraries with input from the children and benefit from loaned topic specific books each term. Children are expected to read every day at home and fill in their reading records accordingly.

 

Children in KS2 are encouraged to take control of the material they choose as much as possible and books are changed when finished. If you are able to spare some time at the start or end of the day, it would be fantastic to have some parent volunteers in school hearing the children read. Please speak to Paula in the office for more details. Thank you.

 

Home learning

 

In Class 2, Home learning folders go home on Wednesdays and are returned the following Monday. 

Any work children complete at home and wish to display at school can be added to our Home Learning display board.

Homework tasks vary each week. They often include activities such as maths work (covering something we have already looked at in class), grammar and punctuation challenges, projects or research based tasks. Children are encouraged to came and speak to a teacher if they are unsure of anything and parents have a space to add comments on the overview for the week which goes out with homework.

 

Spellings

 

Children are given new spellings on Mondays. We discuss rules within the spellings and ways to help us learn them. Children have a grid which they fill in each day at home and we combine this with in-school practise. Spelling tests happen on Mondays.  

 

If you have any questions about reading, home learning or spellings, please come and speak to a member of staff.
