Welcome to Willow

Welcome to the Willow Class Page

If you wish to contact me about anything, please catch me at the beginning or end of the day, or ring the office to arrange an appointment.

I will upload our page throughout the year with pictures of the children’s learning and learning links for them to access at home.

Homework in Year 2

Homework this year will always be linked to children’s learning in class. It is never intended to be too challenging, it is a consolidation of learning from the week and should be completed almost entirely independently. On occasions during the year, topic and science homework will be set. Homework will usually be set on a Friday, and expected back by Wednesday, but for topic homework more time is given.

Spelling journals are introduced in Year 2 when children are ready to begin the transition from phonics to spelling. Children are given words to spell which they have previously spelt incorrectly in class. Spelling journals go home on a Thursday and need to be back in school for Monday, as we use them during Guided Reading sessions.

When children have fully understood the concepts behind multiplication and division, weekly multiplication tests will be introduced. These will be linked to the Rockstars maths, which is an online practise tool for multiplication tables. Children in year 2 need to know their 2, 5, and 10 times tables and related division facts by the end of the year.
