Year 2 Homework
In Year 2, we encourage the children to become increasingly familiar with the 2, 5 and 10 counting patterns, moving onto learning timetables when these are secure.
Many of our children read daily at home to an adult, which is fantastic. Research has shown that children who read daily at home, not only have a higher reading age but also have better outcomes with spelling and writing. It is also a lovely opportunity to spend some time with your child.
Children will given their homework book every Wednesday with their weekly spellings to practise. Children will be using these spellings in their writing every Friday. They will also receive a piece of topic homework once a term.
Homework is sent home on a Wednesdays, please return books on a Tuesday so we can stick in the next set of spellings.
We do not test the children weekly on their spellings because the impact of this strategy has been shown to be negligible. The children are expected to spell high frequency and common exception words for their year group and are assessed on these in their writing. So we use dictation sentences instead.
Spellings for the term can be found below:
