Welcome to Year 2
Home learning will be uploaded every Thursday, to be handed in the following Thursday.
Home Learning Due - 26/9/19
The homework for the next few weeks will be to practise cursive handwriting, using the guidance provided. This must be completed in the red handwriting book.
Week one: Captial and lowercase letters and reciting the alphabet.
An example has been sent home along with the red handwriting book. Please keep this at home for your reference.
At school, we encourage the children to take pride in their neatness and the presentation of their learning. We expect the same level care to be used when using homework books, as any other school book. A gentle reminder that homework should be completed in pencil only, in homework books or on sheets stuck into the book.
Year 2 writing expectations
Here are some of the things the children should include in their writing;
full stops, capital letters and use question marks when required
Use past tense mostly correctly and consistently
Use conjunctions (and/or/ but/ when/ if/ that/ because)
segment spoken words into phonemes and represent these by graphemes, spelling many of these words correctly and making phonically-plausible attempts at others
spell many core words correctly
Children doing more than is expected should;
write effectively and coherently, drawing on their reading to inform the vocabulary and grammar of their writing
make simple additions, revisions and proof-reading corrections to their own writing
use the punctuation taught at key stage 1 mostly correctly ( ! , ’ ? )
spell most core words
add suffixes to spell most words correctly in their writing (e.g. –ment, –ness, –ful, –less, –ly)
Thank you for your support.
