Developing reading stamina and understanding more complex texts are very important in KS2. Children read daily in class and are expected to read regularly at home. Please encourage your child to record their reading and have their Reading Record signed. Children are presented with Book Worm Certificates in our celebration Assembly every Friday and have the opportunity to be entered for the Reading Raffle. In the classroom there are a selection of books that can be borrowed. Please talk to your child about what they are reading; discussing the story and characters, the plot, vocabulary and themes of the story are important at this age.
In Brunel Class, we teach spellings daily.
Please help your child to practise and develop a quick recall of their multiplication facts. A strong working knowledge of these facts is essential as your child progresses through Key Stage 2. They help to support understanding and fluency with long multiplication and division and fractions.
