Physical Education

PE for Year 2 is on Thursday. We ask that PE kits stay in school for the whole half term; we may have additional sessions on other days. If your child is unable to  participate, we require a letter from home. Please ensure that your child has a full indoor and outdoor PE kit in school at all times. If taking part in outdoor learning activities, it would be useful for your child to bring their wellington boots into school. This applies particularly during winter months when the outdoor environment can get very muddy!

Spellings

Spelling homework is an essential part of Year 2 as it reinforces the work undertaken in class. Spellings are given out each Friday and children are tested the following Friday. Children will complete their spelling test in their Malvern Primary School Planner each week.

Reading

Reading is a really important part of your child’s development as well as being an amazing journey into new worlds, real and imagined. Ideally, we would like the children to read each evening for a short time. However, we realise that this is not always possible. As a minimum, we ask that the children read at home with an adult at least four times a week. We ask that this reading is noted in their planner. Please write in the planner when your child has finished the book and we will change it the same day.

PLEASE MAKE SURE THEY BRING THEIR READING BOOK IN EVERY DAY EVEN IF THEY HAVEN’T READ THE NIGHT BEFORE.

Homework

We ask children to use our ‘Ideas for Homework’ help sheet to choose two independent learning projects to undertake each half term. This help sheet will be given out at the start of each half term. Details can also be found by scrolling down to the relevant half term.

In addition to these projects, we ask children to complete spelling and mental mathematics homework every evening and additional maths and English homework as required. This will be given out on a Friday for completion by the following Friday.

We hope to make homework as fun as possible and hope that you enjoy opportunities to see first hand how your child is progressing on their learning journey.

Please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher at any time to discuss homework if you feel it necessary.
