Homework

  • Reading

    • Children will have a reading diary and a book which they can take between home and school. Please make sure if you read at home you make a note of this in your reading diary. If you need an AR quiz on your book let an adult know in school and we can sort this out for you! 

  • Maths
    • Weekly tasks are set on MyMaths (link below- these are optional tasks) 
    • Children are working towards their Bronze times tables award (2s, 5s and 10s)  and some are working on Silver, and can use TTRockstars to help them. A letter with their logins will be sent home on the first day.
  • Spellings
    • Children should practise their Year 1 and Year 2 common exception words regularly. These are shown below and were included in the letter sent home on the first day.
  • GCP Books
    • Children have a Maths and a Grammar homework book. 1 of these will be given out each Monday and the pages that children need to do are listed on the inside of the front cover. These books must be returned to school on the following Monday.
