Year 1 & 2 Homework
YEAR 1 & 2 CHILDREN
All homework will be uploaded onto this webpage each week. Please click to download the latest homework.
In addition to the homework sheets attached, we would also like children to practise:
Every child has a reading book and reading record book. It is expected that children will read every night at home. Please sign your child's reading diary so that we know they are ready for a new book. It is important to support your child by asking them a range of questions and encouraging them to discuss the text with you.
Spelling Practice (Weekly)
Spellings are set weekly and link to the Letters and Sounds sessions which take place every day. Please ensure your child has their Letters and Sounds cards every Friday. If you have any queries relating to spellings, please speak to your child's class teacher in the first instance.
Bug Club (alternate weeks to Mathletics)
You can also access Bug Club which is an online resource to support reading and link to grammar and spelling objectives.
The website is now called ActiveLearn. Each child has an individual login which will be inside their reading record. Please support your child by helping them find the answers to the 'bug point questions' by referring to the text.
Mathematics (alternate weeks to Bug Club)
Practise times tables regularly, counting forwards and backwards in steps of 2, then 10, then 5 before moving onto times tables. These are taught in the following order, 2x, 10x, 5x, 3x, 4x, 6x, 7x, 8x, 9x, 11x, 12x. Children need to be able to answer random questions within 3 seconds.
Every child has access to Mathletics which is an online resource to allow children to practise their mathematical skills. You can access the activities using the Mathletics app on PC/Mac, iOS, Android, Windows 10, Chromebooks.
Class teachers will set activities for the children to complete. We are able to monitor whether children have completed the tasks and the scores they acheived. If they didn't score highly, we will intervene to ensure they have a good understanding. The task set is shown when you login.
If your child has difficulty in logging on, please ask the class teacher who is able to provide the correct login details and/or reset passwords.
Handwriting (alternate weeks to Brain Builder)
Worksheets link to what the children have been practising in class sessions and will be set on the alternate weeks to the brain builder task.
