Year 2 Key Information
Indoor - Monday
Outdoor - Wednesday
Year 2 children also have swimming lessons in our pool in the Autumn and Summer Term. This lesson replaces one of the P.E. lessons that week.
Homework is set on a Friday.
Homework is expected to be completed by the following Thursday.
Each week, children are expected to complete a piece of Maths (including times tables) and English homework, as well as topic-related tasks. We encourage you to read with your child as regularly as possible, recording this in your child's Reading Record. There is an expectation that homework is done each week, however children are able to choose from the topic-related tasks in order to gain the necessary points for a certificate, and can complete their work by hand in their 'Busy Books' or online using Teams.
Each term we revolve our learning around a particular topic.
