PE for both classes takes place on Friday afternoons. The children can come into school on their PE day in their PE kit. PE Kit-Green school shorts and a white school T-shirt with black pumps. Outdoor/Winter PE Kit- Black tracksuit pants, white school T-shirt and black school jumper, spare socks – as there can be lots of wet feet at this time of year. If your child is going to a sports after school club, they can come into school that day in their PE kit.
Spelling homework is an essential part of Year 2 as it reinforces the work undertaken in class. Spellings are available via Spelling Frame every Friday and children are tested the following Friday. Children will complete their spelling test in their Malvern Primary School Planner each week.
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. We encourage the children to write their own response in their planner.
PLEASE MAKE SURE THEY BRING THEIR READING BOOK IN EVERY DAY EVEN IF THEY HAVEN’T READ THE NIGHT BEFORE.
We ask children to use our ‘Ideas for Homework’ help sheet to choose three 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. Homework can be submitted in person, through Seesaw or on Twitter.
In addition to these projects, we may ask children to complete extra homework. This could either be uploaded on Seesaw or on a separate sheet. 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.
