Homework

I have sent home the homework books today and the children have stuck in the homework sheet for the term along with a homework tracker. The tracker is optional and for you to use if you want to keep a track of the homework that they have completed. There is a copy of the homework in the homework section of this class page should you require a further copy. 

Spellings - we will start with List 1 so please encourage your child to learn these spellings throughout the week. I will aim to have a spelling test every Friday. The spelling pattern is indicated for each list and it would be really useful if you could find more words that fit the pattern and discuss these with your child. When practising the spellings, aim to always give the word in a sentence so that the children understand the meaning of the word as well as how to spell it. 

Number facts/times tables - with the introduction of a national times tables test at the end of Year 4, I would like to really focus on learning our times tables in Year 2. We will start off with the 2 x table and the children need to learn this in order as well as a random order. They will  also need to know how to divide by 2 and how this is the inverse to multiplying. I will give them a short test each week and I will let you know how they are getting on. Where appropriate, some children will carry on learning their number facts. 

Reading - I spoke briefly at the parent information meeting about class rewards for reading. This will start from next week. If the children read at least 4 times within a week they will earn a sticker on their sticker chart which is in the back of their reading record. When they have collected 5 stickers they will receive a small prize and again when they have received 10 and then we may jump to 20 stickers for the next prize.

As usual, please do come and ask if you have any questions about this and I will be happy to help.

Have a great weekend
