Dear Parents and Carers
Thanks for your ongoing help and support helping the children be the best they can possibly be. We can't believe how far the children have come and new for the summer term, we've uploaded a host of resources at the bottom of the page to help the children with English and maths SATs assessments. They also have access to Espresso at Home (website) for the other subjects and the usernames and passwords are at in the children's reading journals.
Thank your for all of the positive feedback about the more flexible homework system. 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 on our summer theme of "Post a Pringle! (other flat snacks are available)".
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. New for Mr Haresign and Miss Monk's groups are the Grammar mats. These are very short exercises designed to help support the children with the upcoming SATs Grammar test in May. 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 shortly afterwards. 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.
Miss Hughes, Miss Monk, Miss Mistry and Mr Haresign
