This term, homework will be released on Friday and is to be handed in no later than the following Thursday morning as it will be marked Thursday afternoon and handed back out on the Friday.

Spelling – Children will be coming home with their spelling journals today. I have talked through the expectations with the children. We would like children to complete at least 100 points worth of creative spelling activities each week (details of these can be found on the first two pages of their journal). We would also ask that children do not complete the same activities two weeks in a row.

We will be working on the spellings throughout the week in our spelling and handwriting lesson. Spelling journals will be given to the children on Friday with a copy of this weeks spellings in for the children to continue to practise over the weekend in preparation for our spelling test on Monday. The week’s spellings will also be released on Google Classroom every Monday.

Reading – All children will be issued with their new reading book/s on either Tuesday or Friday each week. Children may bring home a book they have previously read. This is deliberate, as I would like children to focus on their fluency and comprehension of the texts they are reading this term. It is really important to try to listen to your child read everyday. 

Maths – We would like children to use Numbots regularly.

If you no longer have your child’s Numbots login I will be sending these out along with the Autumn term class letter next week.

Grammar – We now have in stock the CGP Grammar books for Year 2. These do need to be purchased from school for a small cost. I will set homework each week on Friday from this book and we will go through the work together on Thursday afternoons.

If you need any help accessing the homework or Google Classroom please email enquiries@stwilfridssheffield.co.uk

Thank you for your continued support.
