Year 2 Homework due in 18.5.18

Dear Parents,

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

e.g.

cooking = cooked

playing = played

We will be giving the children a random selection of verbs, that include verbs that do not follow the -ed suffix rule. For example:

swimming = swam

going = went

reading = read

 

The maths homework is a continuation from last week as we will be sitting the maths SATs paper 2 next week.

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

 

Kind Regards,

Year 2 Team

Year 2 Homework due in 11.5.18

Dear Parents,

Thank you for sending in the baby photos as the children loved sharing them in class. For our next learning journey we are looking at landscapes in art and would like the children to share some of their own photos or images of places they have visited. This may be a photo of the seaside, a mountain, sunset or other landscape e.g:

 Please could they be handed in by Monday 14th May.

Next week in spelling we are focusing on plurals and words ending in -s and -es.

The spellings will be:

dresses, churches, boxes, pulleys, wheels

 

The maths homework will not be tested for the next two weeks. Please use this time to help your children be prepared for their arithmetic SATs tests, which will be taking place in the next couple of weeks.

They need to practice the four operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

Please find examples below:

If you would like any advice on how else you can support your child for their SATs please contact their class teacher.

Kind Regards,

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
