Welcome to Year 2
Over the second half of the spring term we would like your child to complete at least 4 of the activities in the Home Learning Menu you can see below. These should be done in your child's Home Learning book and handed in before Tuesday 21st April.
These activities should be completed in addition to daily reading, spelling practice and any MathswithParents home learning that is set.
Year 2 Team
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.
