Year 2 Homework Expectations
Your child should bring their reading zippy bag, reading diary and reading books into school every day. It is expected that your child be heard read daily and a comment logged in their diary. Reading diaries will be checked daily by an adult in school. Books will be sent home on a Friday and should be returned the following Friday.
Your child will need to bring in his/her homework book each Thursday. This will contain their spelling test, his/her maths fact to learn that week and a vocabulary activity. Homework books should then be handed in the following Monday.
Your child will receive up to 8 spellings each week on a ‘Look, Cover, Write, Check’ sheet. A suggestion on how to help your child learn his/her spelling will be included. Spelling test will be completed on a Thursday.
A set of maths fact activities will come home each week and its aim is to help your child become fluent in number facts. Parents may wish to create similar style questions/activities. Regular short bursts will really help to consolidate the facts.
In year 2, the key number facts are:
Know number bonds to 20
Know number bonds to 100 using multiples of ten
count in steps of 2 from any number, forward or backward
count in steps of 10 from any number forward or backwards
count in steps of 5 from 0 forwards or backwards
A set of words related to the curriculum will be sent home for you and your child to discuss. As the year progresses, these will include synonyms.
