Welcome to Year 2
We wish your children every success in the year ahead. Please feel free to come and see us with any concerns that you may have.
Homework in Year 2 will focus on English, Spelling and Mathematics as well as regular reading, all of which are quite informal.
English: Tasks may support the teaching of grammar and punctuation, or relate to the topic.
Spelling: Your child will be given spellings weekly alongside a fun strategy to help learn them.
Reading: Children are encouraged to take home a book to share with parents/carers for about ten minutes each evening. As an alternative, children can research and read information relating to topic work.
Maths: Homework will be given out each Friday, to be handed in by the next Thursday.
Please ensure that your child’s PE kit is clearly named and brought into school at the beginning of the week. We will have two sessions per week.
