Year 2 Homework

Welcome to Year 2's homework page.

The children and teaching staff in Year Two would like to invite parents and carers to our class assembly on

Please come along to see your children present examples of their learning this term through our topic - Keeping Healthy and Being Active!

 

Summer Term - June 2016

Thank you for your support during the month of May when the children completed their end of Key Stage Statutory Assessments. The children were not phased by the tests and most did not realise when they were all over! They saw them as part of our normal teaching and assessment cycle.  

Teacher assessments reflecting the children's achievements throughout Key Stage one will be reported to parents by the end of July.

 

We will continue with the original homework timetable with spellings and topic homework on Fridays. Please continue to listen to your child read as often as possible during the week and practice maths, handwriting,punctuation and grammar from the activities at the end of this homework page.

2)Know the number of minutes in an hour and the number of hours in a day.

3)Tell and write the time to five minutes, including quarter past/to the hour.

4)Draw the hands on a clock face to show these times.

Thank you for your continuing support.

 

 

 

Spring 1

The homework timetable above will continue this term.

Maths Targets for doubling and halving will be sent home during the first week of this term. Please continue to practise these alongside the complements and addition and subtraction facts from last term. This term we will be using practical equipment to understand and help us to meet the end of year expectations for multiplication and division -

1) Recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 2,5 and 10 times tables, including recognising odd and even numbers.

2) Calculate the mathematical statements for multiplication and division within the multiplication tables and write them using the x \div =signs.

3) Show that multiplication of two numbers can be done in any order (commutative) and division of one number by another cannot.

4) Solve problems involving multiplication and division, using materials, arrays, repeated addition, mental methods and multiplication and division facts, including problems in context.

There are also Times Table Practice Sheets and Weekly Maths Practice Tests, which you can help your child to complete, at the end of this homework page.
