Year 2 Homework - week beginning 12th November
Homework due on the 14th November 2018.
This week we have been doing lots of work surrounding Remembrance Day. As part of this we wrote acrostic poems using either the word ‘Thank you’ or ‘Poppies’. For your homework I would like you to write your own acrostic poem. Choose your favourite zoo animal to be the word used as the basis of your poem.
In the poem you must include at least 3 expanded noun phrases.
Reminder: An expanded noun phrase is when you have an adjective describing a noun, for example ‘the shining star’.
Also a reminder that the times table mountain is stuck into the front of your homework books. Everyone will be starting with 2 times tables so this is what you should be practicing at home this week – test on Wednesday.
- 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.
- Spellings and tables will also be sent home on a Friday in the spellings/tables book. These should be practised and learnt, ready to be tested the following Wednesday. It is important that the children remember to bring their spelling books back in to complete their test in.
- 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.
