Each week children will receive a piece of homework. It will normally be set on a Friday and returned the following Tuesday. If your child is finding any part of it difficult, please ask their Class Teacher who will be happy to help!
Weekly spelling strategies will be sent home to practise to support the children's writing.
Children in Year 2 should be reading at home for a short time every day. Regular practise really helps them to become confident readers. Children will be responsible for changing and choosing their own books. Please continue to sign the reading record books so that we know that your child has shared their book with you. This is monitored by class teachers.
