Dear Parents and Carers
Last term, we trialed a more flexible homework system and the feedback from parents was extremely positive. We know how busy weekends and evening can be - some more than others. To help both the children and your time with them at the weekends, we have produced a homework grid.
Some activities can be completed in a few minutes (for those extremely busy weekends) and some are much more open ended. You children can spend as much time on these as they (and you) want. The choice of the weekly homework task is entirely theirs and all we ask is that homework is handed in by Wednesday.
In most weeks, your child will have time on Thursday or Friday to share and celebrate their homework with their classmates.
There is no homework book in year 2. Children have a plastic folder with their homework grid and any homework they complete is kept in the folder. All homework will be looked at during the class sharing session and some may have a comment from the teacher. Homework is never formally marked though.
Spellings are usually sent before Wednesday each week. For most spelling groups in year 2, the spellings for the week will be available through the links below. Spelling tests are on the following Monday and your child's result will be shown in their home spelling book. Please remind your child to put their spelling book in their bag every Monday for the test.
As always, if you have any questions about homework or spellings, please talk to your child's teacher.
Mrs McManus and Mr Haresign
