Your child will be given a table containing a selection of homework choices. Your child should complete one English and one Maths task each week. Each homework task has stars. One star is the easiest and three stars is the hardest. Try to help your child pick a task that is best suited to them but also remind them to try and challenge themselves.
Once your child has completed their homework tasks, you can send them into school with your child or send evidence to your class email address. Remember, homework can be evidenced in a variety of ways (writing, drawing, photos etc) Homework is due in every Friday.
Each week, it is also important to help your child with spellings, reading and times tables.
We ask that evidence is brought to school to be stuck into your child's homework book or pictures of homework are sent to your class email addresses for the teachers to see. This is because books brought in from home have to be quarantined for 72 hours. The class emails are as follows:
The class emails are:
Each week your child will be given ONE book. Please encourage and help your child to read this independently. It would also be great to read the same book with your child more than once to see if they can improve across the week.
In year 2, there is an expectation that children should know their 2,5 and 10x tables. This means that they should be able to count forwards and backwards in 2,5 and 10's. It would be really useful to help your child to also work out the times tables of a given sum (for example: 2x3=). If your child is able to do all of the above, then the 3x tables is the next set of times tables to teach.
This year, it is important that your child can read and spell the year 1 and year 2 common exception words. Please assist your child in being able to do this at home. A list of the words have been posted below so please work through these with your child weekly.
