Year 2 Homework
- Homework is given every Friday. Please note that homework is not optional. All homework must be completed with care taken on presentation and handed in on time. However, if your child is unable to carry out a piece of homework due to illness or any other extenuating circumstance, please let us know.
- One piece of homework will be set around the core subjects/topic each Friday to be completed in the Homework Books. This must be handed in the following Wednesday.
- Spelling books will go home on a Friday and need to be returned the following Wednesday ready to complete the test inside that day. Please don't practise inside the books, use them just to monitor how your child is getting on. Times tables will also be tested on a Wednesday. To find out which times tables you need to focus on, please see the 'Times Table Mountain' inside the front cover of your child's homework book.
- Reading is an integral part of our homework policy, and children should read for approx. 15mins every evening with supervision. Reading must be recorded in the reading record book for us to keep track of the books the children read at home, at school (during guided reading sessions with the teacher) and their progress through the year.
Reading books and reading record books should be in book bags every day.
The school follows the government's letters and sounds and use the Jolly Phonics scheme. The reading scheme used is primarily The Oxford Reading Tree.
