Homework

Reading

Please prioritise listening to your child read their banded reading book at least four times a week.  Children also benefit greatly from listening to adults and older children read stories to them, so snuggle up and enjoy books together.  These videos from the Open University give top tips on how to share books with your child:

Reading Tips #1

Reading Tips #2

Maths

Please help your child to rehearse their target number facts.  They can also rehearse their multiplication facts on Times Tables Rock Stars.

Spelling and Phonics

You can find below a list of 'common exception' words for Years 1 and 2.  These are words that the children may not be able to use their phonic knowledge to spell.  They are words that tend to crop up regularly when they are writing and so it is helpful if the children learn how to spell them.  We have attached below some ideas for practising spellings with your child.  

If you need any help printing out resources, please speak to a member of the Y2 team.
