Year 2 Letters

Home Learning

Top education researchers tell us that homework has minimal impact for primary age pupils, unless it requires children to rehearse and practise.  We have therefore adapted our routines to reflect this. The routines for children in this year group are as follows:

    • Reading and/or talking about their reading to an adult for at least 20 minutes, 5 times a week. This will be evidenced through reading being recorded in reading records. Reading records and reading books should be coming into school daily. Reading records will be signed by teachers to check regular reading is occurring.
    • Learning spelling patterns linked to age-related expectations ready for use in dictation towards the end of every week. These spellings will be on year group notice boards and should be practised at home. Dictation (recorded on sheets) will now be sent home weekly in reading folders so you can see achievement and progress.
    • Reciting multiplication tables to increase their fluency so that they can be applied in other areas of maths and problem solving. These will be  tested in our weekly times tables challenge and will be sent home.
    • Half-termly creative home learning will be set at the start of each half term and will celebrated and fed back on during our creative home learning showcases.

Purple home learning books will no longer being used as practice can be done at home. You will be able to see achievement and progress through the dictation and times tables challenge sheets going home weekly. You will also be able to witness progress through class exercise books for English and maths being sent home once during every half-term.



Multiplication Tables

Learning this week



After half term, we will be reading Anne Fine's "Diary of a Killer Cat". In this story, Ellie's cat Tuffy drags a dead bird into the house, then a mouse. Tuffy can't see what the big problem is! After finishing our character descriptions, we will now write a diary entry from the point of view of Ellie, Tuffy's sensitive owner. 



We will be revisiting Money this week. The children will need to recognise coins, find different combinations of coins that equal the same amount and solve word problems and reasoning to do with money. 

Learning Next Week



We will continue writing about "The Diary of a Killer Cat", except this week the children will write a diary entry from the point of view of Ellie, Tuffy's sensitive owner. 



We will focus on using the bar model to solve problems for four operations, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
