Year 2 Homework
(Agreed, after consultation with our Parent Forum)
Each week, children will receive weekly spellings as well as alternate Maths or English work. Homework will be sent out on Thursday with an expectation for it to be returned by the following Wednesday.
Spelling tests will also take place the following Wednesday, ensuring the children have ample time to learn them. See below the spellings we are learning in class this term:
‘dge’ and’ ge’
S sound spelt
c before i, e and y
Wr (silent w)
a before l
Maths: this will focus on skills relevant to what the children have been learning throughout the week, as part of their consolidation. This term will be focusing on the 2, 5 and 10 times tables so please practise as much as you can at home.
English: a task linked to our current text, practising grammar and punctuation skills.
Both English and Maths homework will be set using Education City. For children who don't have access to the internet or a suitable device at home, a paper-based alternative will be provided. Please encourage children to do their homework as independently as possible and see me if there are any problems.
Any child unable to complete homework at home, will always be given the opportunity to complete it in school but there is an expectation that they do this independently.
In addition, please see below for our choice grid linking to our topic this term on the Great Fire of London. Children can complete as many or little activities as they choose, though we highly encourage children to participate and bring their work into school, to show to the rest of the class.
