Homework and Spellings

Homework will be set on Thursday for completion the following Tuesday.

Mrs Hughes' English group spellings are in the pupil spelling logs from Tuesday (and are included for information in the weekly homework on a Thursday) and will be tested on a Monday morning.

No physical or email homework needs to be returned.

Reading books are issued on a Wednesday to be returned the following Tuesday. The 'Go Read' system is the same as it was in Year 1. Books will only be changed if they are returned on a Tuesday and marked as complete on 'Go Read' (by 8.50am Tue morning). If books aren't returned we assume you want to keep them longer which is fine. If books aren't marked as complete we assume they have not been completed and will be returned to you for completion.

Maths - there will be set tasks on 'Sumdog' from time to time as well as the usual choices. See 'Home learning Hub' page for link.

Do get in touch if you have further questions.

7/7/22 Homework and Spellings

Spelling

We have now completed all the Year 2 spelling patterns and Red Words (common exception words).

There will be a list of Year 1 (very urgent now) and Year 2 words that the children need to work on coming home to practise over the summer. The 'R' and' W' means 'Read' and 'Write' so the lists show which words your child can / can't read and spell. Any 'Yellow' means those words are targets. 

Homework

It is important for the children to keep reading regularly over the summer holidays so they are ready to go in Year 3. Do enjoy the books you have at home  - maybe visit the library to borrow new exciting titles. Leeds Libraries run summer reading activities which are always good fun and have great books. 

Telling the time is one of the maths areas that still needs lots of practice. Telling the time to quarter hours is Year 2 but to 5 minutes is top Year 2 and makes sure they are really ready for Year 3. 

Any times tables practice would be beneficial: 2 X, 5 X, 10 X and 3 X alongside division complements. Also any mental addition and subtraction with 2 digit numbers would also be beneficial to keep skills sharp.

Tying shoe laces - it would be good for pupils who still can't tie their shoes to practise over the summer so they are all set for KS2. Most pupils don't have laces except for trainers - which can take lots of time out of PE if they need adults to do it for them.

 

Finally, thanks so much for all the support with spellings and homework over the year. As I've said to the children many times, Year 2 have twice as many spelling units as the rest of the school so we really do work harder than anyone else on spellings! :) It couldn't be done without you. It makes such a difference with all the help we get from you guys! Thank you :)
