Quick Homework Links

Year 2 Homework

You will receive a Ping on Friday afternoons to outline the weekly spelling words and for a link to a Maths game that relates to our in-class learning.

The areas outlined below are how you can support your child at home.

Reading – Your child reads to you daily for 10 minutes. Reading to them is also fun and helpful but it is important that they also have time practising reading to you. Ideally, a book that is the right level for your child will mean they are able to read about 8-9 out of 10 words correctly.

Here is a link to the e-book library: https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-school/oxford-owl-ebook-collection

Spelling – At the top of this page is a list of the Y1 and Y2 common exception words. It is expected that all Y2 children are able to read and write these tricky words. They are called common exception words because they are words that are often used but are unable to be sounded out phonetically. We will begin by covering the Y1 words, working our way down the column. Each Friday, I will Ping the six weekly focus words from the list. Please help support your child in learning to spell these words. In the “Quick Homework Links” section you can find fun ideas to help your child learn spellings. They will be asked to write them from memory on the following Friday in a spelling challenge.

This homework is provided to help support your child in their learning. Every child and family is different so please complete with a balance that suits your timetable and child. Please ask if you are unsure about something.

Thank you for your support!
