Homework

 The way we set homework has changed this half term. The children have a range of activities they can choose to complete during the half term. Please send homework in no sooner than 15th February.Download a copy of the homework sheet here.

 

Additional to the homework, please continue to practise the year 2 spellings and read as many times as possible during the week with your child, recording a brief comment in the reading diary. If your child reads three times in a week they will receive a ticket that will be entered into a weekly competition with a book prize as a reward if their ticket is picked out. Remember, the more you read at home, the more tickets can be collected. HAPPY READING.

 

 Year 2 Spellings

Click here to download a page containing all year 2 spelling words

A list of spellings have been sent home with your child. Please practise these spellings with your child as they should be able to spell all of the words on the list by the end of year 2.

Ideas to support spelling:

  1. Play "look, cover, write, check" for each spelling. The speed at which the children can write the spellings should increase the more that they practise.
  2. Split the decodeable words into the sounds that you can hear.
  3. Encourage the children to refer to the spelling bank provided when completing homework activities.
  4. When practising your child's spelling could you please put each word into a sentence as well as practising them individually.

Useful information 

  • Please read with your child each day and sign their reading diary. There is a Year 2 competition for the class who has the most readers each week.  
  • Can you please ensure that all of your children's belongings, jumpers, coats, bottles etc. are all clearly labelled with their name and class clearly on them.
  • The children are provided with fruit or vegetables every day for their playtime snack. If your child brings in their own snack from home, please ensure that it is a healthy snack that does not contain nuts. There are children within the year group who have severe allergies. 
  • SPARE CLOTHING  Do you have any school clothing that your child has grown out of? We would greatly appreciate it if you could donate unwanted uniform to school for us to use.
