Revision Week





Your child will participate in a spelling test on the dates stated above. They will be tested on all words however the order in which the words are read out will vary from week to week.

Friday 20th October is a revision week where your child will take a slightly extended test involving a selection of words from all words learnt this half term.

Here are some suggestions to help your child learn their spellings and best use this book:

On the first attempt ask your child to sit quietly, look at one word at a time, say the word, turn the page and write the word for the first attempt.

Use a separate copy of the words, cover the page back so your child cannot see the first attempt and then say each word in a mixed up order for your child to write the second attempt. It is likely that it will take more than two attempts for your child to be secure in these words so please continue on spare paper.

We are suggesting that children with large handwriting use the: “can you write last week’s words section” as the column is wider. It would be helpful to go over last week’s words either in the book or on spare paper.



Year 2 - Autumn - First Half

Maths Homework- IXL

Below is an outline of the set homework skills we would like your child to practice over this half term. A suggested amount of time to spend on the two/three skills on IXL each week is 10-15 minutes. You should notice that as your child answers more questions correctly and at a faster pace that the level of difficulty will increase, similarly if they answer problems incorrectly IXL will alter the problems to suit their understanding.
