Dear Parents,

The spelling homework this week involves changing verbs from the present tense to the past tense.

Please don’t forget to send your child in with a picture of a landscape for our Art Learing Journey next week.

Year 2 Homework due in 4.5.18

Dear Parents,

Next Friday 4th May KS1 will be taking part in the School Charity day and will be collecting donations for the baby baskets. We kindly ask if each child could also bring in a photo of them on the day to play Guess who?! Please can you put your child’s name on the back of the photo, so we can ensure they are returned at the end of the day.

The spelling homework for this week is based on the spelling rules for adding the – ed suffix.

The words are:

spotted, hopped, clapped, patted, jogged

 

The maths for next week is missing number problems. The children need to do the inverse to work out the answers, e.g.

__ + 10 = 50     so   50 – 10 = 40

Examples of questions are:

__ + 20 = 48

__ – 5 = 30

25  +  __ = 40

15 + __ = 35

Thank you,

Year 2 Team
