Homework for both Year 1 and 2 will consist of:

  • Spelling practice - Please learn weekly spellings at home.
  • Common Exception Word practice – Please work with your child to learn to read and spell the words that are sent home. Five words will be sent home and tested in school weekly. Words will be changed when children can read and spell them correctly.
  • Reading – Reading at home is extremely important for children’s fluency, comprehension and love of reading. Please read at least five times and week and record it in children’s reading diaries.

Please support your child to believe and achieve by taking the time to complete homework with them.
