Homework and Spellings - Whole School Policy



Your child should always have a reading book in his/her book bag. Please listen to your child read at home as much as possible. This doesn't always have to be their school reading book. Reading any type of texts such as magazines, comics, menus, street signs etc. is just as valuable.

If you listen to your child read his/her school reading book, please make a comment (positive if possible) in their reading diary so that we know that the book has been read and then we can change it in school.

The children will be listened to read at school regularly and this will be logged in the reading diary too. 




Maths homework will be given out each Thursday and should be returned the following Thursday. The work will be linked to something the children have been learning in class and may also be differentiated to suit each child's ability.



Each week your child will have spellings to learn. These words are linked to the phonics sounds we are learning each week. Please help your child to learn their weekly spellings, these will be tested each Monday and new words will be given.


Year 2 Spellings List (click this title for spellings)

Sections A to L are called exception words that don't appear to follow spelling rules and patterns. These should be known by all children by the end of Year 2.

Sections 1 to 95 are largely words grouped together because they follow a certain spelling rule or pattern. These are all common words that are used frequently.
