Welcome back to the last term in Year 2. I hope you have all had a brilliant half term, we had some really amazing weather didn't we?! 


There is also a homework topic grid for you to choose challenges on throughout this term. These can be photos emailed in or brought in for 'show & tell' - please keep show & tell items for topic/homework only. 


Handwriting Booklet - If you would like your child to practise some handwriting at home this booklet should help. I have also attached a booklet to help with spelling games and strategies to make spelling more fun (hopefully!)...

Homework Expectations


This term I would like the children to read for 10 minutes everyday. This can be in the format of 'storytime' at bedtime with a book from home or can be the school reading book. Either way I would appreciate a comment in the reading record to show they have read something.

 I will set 3 tasks per week on Mathletics (these will rollover if not completed the week before) and the appropriate spellings on Readiwriter. I would suggest no more than 20 minutes for this per day at the most. The children do not need to do Mathletics and Spelling practice every night. 

Some weeks I will set a 2do on Purple Mash and I will write a note on here to make that clear for those weeks. These are optional activities. 


TT Rockstars has been set at 2x, 5x and 10x tables. This is also optional.


I would like to re-iterate that there is no negative consequence for not completing ALL the tasks. As long as the children are having a go at some reading they can spread the other activities out over the week and that is perfect!  I don't want homework to be a battle for anyone, so please do e-mail me if there are any issues.

Thank you for your help with this. 


Bug Club has several books allocated at your reading band.  Read the books carefully, ,discuss with someone at home and answer the questions on each bug as I will be reviewing the results. Read newspapers, watch CBBC Newsround (there are 5 minute round-ups daily) and ask questions! 



Garage Room- Please try to practise in here as much as you can. 

Studio Room-  This is where you play to try and record your best performance and improve your rock status. Your challenge on here is to answer all times tables up to 12 x 12 

Arena- This is a bit like the garage room where tables are set for you individually. The difference is you get to play against other band-mates and challenge each other. 

Festival- This is a multiplayer version of studio



If you wish to, you can also access NUMBOTS maths website using your times tables rock stars login. Just enter the school's postcode or name then your rock star login. Have fun!
