Year 2 Homework

Homework will continue to be set as follows:

Monday Spellings & Reading
Tuesday Spellings & Reading
Wednesday Spellings & Reading
Thursday Spellings & Reading
Friday Spellings & Reading, CGP Comprehension and Maths Books
  • In Year 2, homework should take no longer than 15 minutes daily to complete. We do expect it to be done. Please support your child and us by insisting that your child does his/her homework every night.
  • For English homework, we use CPG Targeted Questions Comprehension Books. Children work with their teachers in class before the homework is sent out, in order to discuss any unfamiliar vocabulary. In addition to this, children are sent spellings to learn weekly for a test each Thursday. We very much encourage children to read nightly, with the expectation that they will have at least five signatures or comments in their reading diaries every week.For Maths homework, we use CPG Targeted Questions Maths Books. Homework is set on a Friday and is due in on a Wednesday.All work handed in by Wednesday is marked and sent home on a Friday.
  • We set homework so that your child can continue their learning at home; to reinforce something they have been taught in school; to complete work they have started in the lesson in readiness for the next lesson; so that you can be aware of what they are learning at school and the progress they are making.
  • Do take an interest in what homework is set but please don’t do their homework for them; it doesn’t help them and it doesn’t help us.
  • If you believe that the work they have been set is too easy or too difficult for them, you have the right to ask to discuss this with their teacher.
