The children are expected to read to an adult at home for at least 10-20 minutes daily and to regularly practise their personal maths targets. They will also be given weekly spellings to learn. All of these things will help to support the children's learning at school and regular practise can make a big difference. Have a little look on the Spelling, Reading and Maths pages on the year 2 class page for more information on how you can support your child's learning at home.
Each year group are given a homework grid to complete each term. There will be a new grid for each topic covering 6 different areas of learning. Over each half term you will need to pick 2 projects to have a go at, you can pick more if you like! They have to be from different coloured areas of learning.
The children will be given a homework book to use if they want to. This is a good place to put any writing projects, graphs, drawings etc. For other projects you may want to make a video, powerpoint presentation or show some photographs. You can put these on to a memory stick and send them in to the class teacher. You can also present the practical tasks in a number of ways—photograph, drawing, model.
All projects should be complete by the last Monday of every half term. The children will share their projects with their friends and teachers at school. All children get the opportunity to have a look around at everybody's projects and to chat to Mrs Humphries or I about what they have been doing. We look forward to seeing what the children have been doing this half term!
