Homework will now be sent home weekly in a homework book. These will be sent out every Friday with the expectation that they will be returned with the homework completed by the following Wednesday. This is to ensure that all children are able to access the homework as this is currently a problem. Reading logs will also be collected in every Friday. Please aim to read with your child at least 3x a week and fill in the log.
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.
Homework is due in every Wednesday and will be given back out on a Friday. This is due to having to quarantine the books.
Each week, it is also important to help your child with spellings, reading and times tables.
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. Your child has also been issued a reading log. Please fill this in with your child. If your child reads at least 3x a week they will be given a sticker for their reading log.
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.
