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 '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.
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.

We will also be doing 'Time' next term so practising telling the time ( to 5 minutes ) is also very helpful in developing skills needed in Year 2. Thanks.

Spelling & grammar
There are no specific words to learn as we have been doing a 'special focus unit' on contractions this week and we will be using apostrophes of omission from now on. We have learnt how to contract 2 words into 1: do not - don't etc. Words covered include: don't, didn't, doesn't, haven't, I'll we'll, you've, could've, should've, would've, you're, they' re, we're etc.
Non this week but we have found the following words particularly tricky despite having covered them already.

Science Week 13/3/23 - 17/3/23
It's science week next week and we'll be doing lots of science in school. We hope you've had chance to have a go at the 'Tea Dunking' challenge at home (sent out before half term). Do send in your findings next week. In Year 2 we'll be finding out about a scientist called 'Kelsey Byers' next week. She's an Evolutionary Biologist. We'll also be trying to find out who has the fastest reactions in school.
You may like to try the BBC Bitesize game below 'Galaxy Pugs' which has all the KS1 science topics. So far this year in Year 2 we have covered Materials, Animals Including Humans and are in the middle of Habitats. It's a fun way to practise our science knowledge.
Next week's celebration certificates will be science certificates.
