It is important for the children in year two to be reding every day. Children will read regularly during Read Write Inc, guided reading and shared reading lessons in school. They will select a book from their book band basket to read at home. Ideally we would like children to change their books daily or a minimum of four times a week. Please sign their reading log books every time they read with you at home. The teachers will check these once a week.
Children will get maths homework every week and this will come home on a Friday. This may sometimes be written work or may be online. The children will receive passwords for My Maths in the coming weeks.
The children will bring home some weekly spellings to learn. These are words that will follow the pattern of the spelling rule that the children have been learning in school that week. Please practise these words with your child. We would then ask that they write a sentence using each of the words. We would like to encourage use of punctuation and check that these sentences are written in the correct tense. As we progress through the year these sentences should become more complex using adjectives and conjunctions (because, so, that, but) to add more detail.
If there are any questions about any parts of your child's homework then please don't hesitate to ask you child's class teacher.
