Maths Homework Homework will be set every week – Thursday or Friday Maths homework; reinforcing objectives for the week. Children should attempt work on their own although support may be given. NB Homework consolidates work we will already have covered in class. Please use the example method (if given) to assist your child with their maths homework because it will be familiar to them. Also, please annotate the sheet if support is given.
Spelling Homework New spellings are given out on a Friday. Children write these into a spelling book. Please practise these spellings at home in complete sentences. PLEASE do not write in these books! Children need to bring their home spelling books in school on Friday ready for their new spellings.
Spellings Spelling and phonic work is taken from the scheme ‘Letters and Sounds’ Weekly spellings will be a combination of high frequency words and words related to a sound pattern 9
Reading Homework Reading should be done daily to encourage a love of books and develop fluency. Please write the titles of books read each week in their contact books along with a simple comment on your child’s progress at home (1 or 2 sentences)
Reading Wide and varied reading schemes support the children’s reading. Reading helps to develop comprehension and writing skills as well as enjoyment. A variety of extended readers are available for our more able readers. Children are encouraged to read two or more books a week according to individual needs. Books are colour banded to monitor and ensure progression. There are matching coloured book marks which reflect the learning objectives for each band High Frequency word lists (see handouts)
Reading Your child will have access to the school library in order to extend the range of books they read. In Year Two, children will start bringing home an assortment of library books that they have chosen alongside their weekly banded reading books.
Writing A variety of writing styles are covered throughout the year; story, poetry, instructions, explanations, non- chronological reports and information texts. This develops the children’s ability to write for different purposes. We encourage children to use and check punctuation to ensure their writing makes sense using check-lists and targets.
