Homework

Each week your child will be getting homework. The homework will be handed out on a Friday and is expected back in on the following Wednesday. Each week the homework will consist of work from either a maths or English workbook. The homework will be one or two pages from the book. As well as this we would like you to spend time reading with your child and doing some maths. The maths could consist of learning times tables (expectations by the end of year 2 is for your child to know 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables) or counting forwards and backwards below 100 in different sized steps starting from different places.
