Homework

 

Homework will go out on a Friday and due in on a Thursday.

 

Maths homework

Children will get a maths activity. This will either consolidate learning from the previous week or a times tables activity.

 

English homework

Children will be set spellings to learn at home. The spellings will be from the Read Write Inc Spelling Scheme and will consolidate the rule they have been working on that week.

There will be a spelling test every Thursday.

 

Reading- varies for each child

Similar to Year 1, children will be given two books to read at home and will be given a reading day. I have also given children ‘reading bingo’ in the back of their English homework book. These are fun activities children can do at home when reading. Children do not need to evidence this in their books.

Children may be given a Reading Focus task; this will be a task that we consider will improve their reading for the following week. This is to be brought back on their reading day.

 

The children also have access to the RM Easimaths, Sumdog and Purple Mash learning platforms for reinforcement and extension.
