Homework

In addition to reading, spellings and times tables your child will be set weekly homework consisting of maths, literacy or a creative topic based activity. This will come home on a Friday and due in the following Wednesday.  The expectation is that your child will read a minimum of 5 times each week. If for any reason your child is unable to complete the homework tasks please speak to a member of staff or write a note in their link book and we shall endeavour to help as best we can.

 

Year 2′s Hedgehog homework was far too amazing not to share. Here are just a few:

Reading

Maths Apps

This year your child will start learning and be tested on times tables. We will start with the 2 times tables and progress onto the 5′s, 10′s and 3′s. In the summer term we will look at the 4 times tables.

 

To support their learning of these we have some tried and tested apps. If you have access to an ipad or tablet you may wish to download some of these to play at home. Most are free however some require a small fee.
