Screen Time Tips
In Year 1&2, we encourage our students to enjoy reading and listening to lots of different stories. As part of the Year 1&2 homework routine, please encourage your child to read every night and record this in their Home Reading Journal. Ten minutes of reading every day can make a real difference to your child’s learning. Please click the below linkS for information on how to support your child with their home reading.
How to Teach a Child to Read - A Parent's Guide

Essential Assessment – this is an excellent resource to revise what has been taught in the classroom. Students can access this from home to practise tasks targeted at specific areas in maths. Sunset Maths is also part of Essential Assessment and provides fast fact practice. Students use their individual log on which you can find stuck on the inside cover of their Home Reading Journal.
