Homework will be set on a Friday and will consist of reading, writing, maths or SPaG activities. This is due back in school the following Wednesday. 


Helping your child at home

Reading: Continue to read regularly at home with your child. Every child should be reading at least 4 times a week and this will be monitored in school. If a child is not consistently reading at home, parents will be contacted. 

Maths: Practise counting anywhere that you can. By the end of Y1, children need to be able to count (in ones) to a hundred. In Y2 practise counting in 2s, 5s and 10s, as this will prepare your child when they come to learn their times tables.

Handwriting:  In Y1 the children will be introduced to precursive, this is the first step towards writing your letters joined up. In Y2 the children will start to learn how to do continuous cursive. At home encourage lots of opportunities to write; shopping lists, cooking and baking, writing instructions.
