Reading

Currently working at level 1A/2C

When reading with your child, ask questions about the text. In answering the questions, support your child in discussing the main events in the story. For example, ‘what happened at the beginning, middle and end of the story’? Model this for your child and discuss any differences of opinion, using clues from the text to support the arguments.

I can find and talk about the main events in a story.


Writing

Currently working at level 1A/2C

Encourage your child to practice writing sentence that include the connective ‘and’ and ‘then’. This will enable your children to link two sentences together when writing in class. Begin by using a range of connectives when speaking such as so, but, and, then. Once your child is confident to use a range of connectives when speaking, encourage their use in writing. You could also look at a piece of their writing and improve it by adding in some of these connectives.

To be able to link my ideas with ‘and’ and ‘then’.

Discuss with your child how they work through a subtraction and addition calculation. Give your child a calculation and have them explain how they are going to find the answer.

Reading

Currently working at level 2B

When reading with your child, ask questions about the text. In answering the questions, support your child to find evidence from the text to support their explanation such as “I think they feel happy because they are smiling in the picture”. Encourage your child to think how they would feel if they were the character in the story and why? Give your opinion and use clues in the text to support your ideas.

I can talk about what characters might be thinking or feeling using clues in the text.

Writing


Currently working at level 2B

Encourage your child to write stories while at home. Ask your child questions on ’what makes a good story? And what type of stories do they like to read and why?’ When writing their stories, encourage your child to make their stories exciting by using their imagination. Work together to write an adventure story starring your child.

I can write stories with a beginning, middle and ending.

Maths



Currently working at level 2B

Discuss with child the different strategies they have learnt when adding more than one number together. Encourage them to change the order the numbers are in to help work out the answer mentally. For example, 6 + 7 + 4 can become 4 + 6 + 7 = 10 + 7. This will also build up their knowledge of finding a relationship between the numbers in the calculation.

To be able to add several numbers, using the fact that the order can be changed.

Speaking and Listening



To be able to ask questions to help their understanding.

Support your child’s speaking and listening skills by modeling how to listen carefully. Model effective questioning skills the children could use to help their understanding, e.g. ‘why do you think that?’ This will build up their conversation skills and being able to respond to others around them.

Reading


Currently working at level 2A/3C

When reading with your child, ask your child questions about the characters in the story. In answering the questions, support your child to find the relevant information required to answer the questions and make notes on the key points. Develop this further by both drawing the charter from the story and comparing them, discuss where in the text you found the description.

I can draw a character from a book from a description I have read.


Writing

Currently working at level 2A/3C

Encourage your child to choose different type of text to read, e.g. comics, newspaper, information books and magazines. Together compare how they are different from storybooks. Have your child discuss the different features of writing used in the different texts and how they compare to stories. Which type of texts do they prefer and why?

Maths

Currently working at level 2A/3C

Talk with your child about the relationship between multiplication and division calculations. Support your child to look for the patterns in numbers and how this can help them when struggling with a calculation. Encourage your child to practice this method when solving division problems. This will also secure the children’s knowledge of multiplication.


To be able to interpret division as the inverse of multiplication, e.g. understanding that 25 / 5 can be found using 5 X 5 = 25.

Speaking and Listening



To be able to respond appropriately to questions from others.

Support your child to develop their conversational skills by modelling good listening and how to pick up key information the speaker has said. Demonstrate the use of asking questions to aid understanding and answering questions to give more detail and to move the conversation on.
