Homework 7th July

Next week the children are making Ferris wheels in D&T. To help with this, please can you send in any:

  • Cardboard
  • Plastic bottles
  • Bottle tops
  • Egg boxes
  • Small yogurt pots


Thank you!

This week the children have been learning about fractions in maths and it would be good for them to consolidate some of this learning at home. We have been working on identifying and writing 1/2,/1/4 and 1/3, writing it in words and numbers.

31st March 2023

Well done to everyone for working so hard this term! We hope you have a wonderful break over the Easter.

Please remember to read at least 10 minutes every day and don't forget about your guided reading homework to bring back in on the first week back.


In maths, we have been working on telling the time. Especially to o'clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to. Though, we have also been exploring how there are 60 minutes in 1 hour and how the 5 times table can be useful to us when telling the time. It would be great for the children to keep exploring time over Easter, telling the time whenever possible and discussing the time with adults at home. To help support this further, try the maths time diary homework attached.


Lastly, please see the main homework page for the science engineering optional homework project.


Happy Easter!


17th March 2023

Please see the engineering homework on the main homework page and have fun creating something that flies, floats or a bridge out of recycled materials. This is an optional homework but we do encourage as many of you to give it a go that can!


As this week has been science week we haven't been doing Guided Reading or spelling tests so you have another week to learn your spellings and get your comprehension work done to be brought in next week on your usual days.

*Apologies for parents and children who have completed the 2 star worksheet for maths as there is an error on the mark scheme. 19m is less than 91m.*

We are coming to the end of our unit of multiplication. To help your child consolidate their learning have a go at one sheet from each of these pieces of homework: missing numbers and word problems. For each piece you can choose from 1,2 or 3 stars. 1 being the easiest and 3 being the most challenging. The answers are included in the files.

2nd December 2022

Alongside your spellings this week, you are also continuing to learn your lines, dances and songs for the nativity play. We have uploaded the song lyrics to help you do some car karaoke or after dinner sing along sessions - as much as you can to help you shine as the stars you are during our dress rehearsal next Friday!


Tips for learning your parts:

1) Read your lines out loud to yourself again and again.

2) Try reciting them to a friend or family member, ask them to check you are saying the right lines.

3) Act your lines out in front of the mirror, or record yourself doing it. Look at your expressions and think about how your character should be feeling - are you showing this? Are you speaking slowly, clearly and loudly?

4) Preform your part to a friend or family member and ask them for some good feedback.


You can do all this with the songs too smiley


Can't wait to rehearse more with you next week!

25th November 2022


Please learn your lines for the Y2 Nativity.


Thank you.
