Expectations for Year 2

Reading of your Phonics book, 5 times per week and signing your reading record to reflect this.   It is important to support your child with daily reading as this has a huge impact on their understanding, imagination, creativity and learning across all subjects. In Year 2, it is important to also read to your child books that maybe beyond their reading level-the children will take home a reading for pleasure book, which they choose for themselves.   

Homework is set on a Friday each week and is due in the following Wednesday. Homework will usually consist of Spellings which will be given out on a Monday and a piece of Maths homework which will either be sent as a worksheet. Occasionally, children may be asked to bring in photos for our RE topics. 

 

Thank you for your continued support.
