Homework will be set on Thursday for completion the following Thursday.
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 'Boom' 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 'Boom' (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 - Numbots and TTRS (Spring onwards) are fun ways to practise skills.
Knowledge Organisers - There are Maths and Science 'Knowledge Organisers' in the 'Homework Pack - Useful Stuff' which give you the core learning covered in each topic.
Handwriting and Phonics - guides / lists / examples are in the 'Homework Pack - Useful Stuff'
The Year 2 Team
Mrs Hughes' Spellings 19/9/23
Red Words: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday (we will officially start learning these words next week)
Unit words:we will choose these next week when we start the unit and they will be posted on Mon / Tue. (18/19/9/23)
We will start Book 2A unit 1 next week (18/9/23). Both sets of words will be tested on Monday 25th Sept. Please don't panic or worry - it's a learning curve and all very new for our lovely Year 2s. We practise the words at school and study the patterns weekly but daily practice at home is essential to help make them 'stick'. Thank you :)
2A Unit 1: call, hall, also, almost, walk, talk
Science - Bulbs
Please could the children bring in 2 or 3 bulbs to plant in our class tubs. As part of our science we need to observe bulbs growing. We will be planting them just before and just after half term. Please bring them in by Wed 11th October.
D. T. - vehicle making.
We are looking forward to our parent afternoon where we will be making vehicles for D.T. with you. Please could the children bring in a small box to make their vehicle out of. Tea boxes are ideal (shoe boxes are a bit big). Please could the children bring the boxes by the week beginning 2/10/23.
