Your child’s homework is set on a Wednesday afternoon on Google Classroom and needs to be uploaded by the following Wednesday morning (before 9am)

Weekly homework will be spelling based and 1 or 2 tasks set relating to the spelling words set. 

In terms of the spelling homework, please assist your child with this valuable part of their learning by ensuring they complete all homework to the best of their ability and provide them with support when necessary. 

The spelling words should be revisited throughout the week to ensure your child can remember to spell them for their test on Wednesdays. You will receive your child’s spelling result in their reading record each week (these need to be in school every day). 

Children will be expected to complete Maths homework using NumBots. They should be spending at least 5 minutes on it every weekday. All children need to have completed a total of 25 minutes, which will be checked every Monday. It is very important that children use NumBots little and often rather than all at once. Repeated practice is vital to commit new knowledge to long term memory.

Three Dimensional Shapes




The aims of the National Curriculum are to develop fluency and the ability to reason mathematically and solve problems. We will be working on our reasoning skills and solving problems set in unfamiliar contexts, using and applying our fluency skills and improving our ability to reason mathematically. We are aiming for Year 2 children to have completed Numbots (Diamond level) by the end of the year, with 3 stars on each level.

A child’s book bag with their reading pack (with reading record and reading book inside) are considered to be school uniform and must be in school each day.  Water bottles should be brought into class with your child’s name on. 


Please ensure all items of your child’s uniform and PE kit are clearly labelled with their name to ensure they can be easily recovered if lost and minimise the cost of replacement. 


Swimming will take place on Thursdays. Children need to come to school dressed in their school uniform and bring in a bag with their swimming costume/trunks, goggles, towel and a swimming hat. Swimming and water safety are statutory element of the National Curriculum for PE in England. 


PE will take place on Fridays. Children can come to school dressed in their PE kit and should not bring their school uniform on this day. 


Please ensure your child is wearing correct school uniform and following the guidelines for hair bow/band colours etc.
