In P2 children have a homework pack this contains all their homework for that week. Packs are sent home on a Monday and returned on a Friday.  We recommend completing a little each night.

Reading – each week children have two books to read, one has been read in school and the other is an unfamiliar read. The children also have the opportunity to bring home a library book.

Spellings and number facts – children have a list of spellings and number facts each week. We suggest that each night children work on a few spellings and follow look, say, cover, write, check strategy.

Written work-

  • Monday night is Literacy.
  • Tuesday night is Numeracy.
  • Wednesday night is a Topic based activity or consolidation of work in school.
  • Thursday night children ensure they have completed all spellings and number facts. As well as completing a spelling activity and high frequency word work.


Our Topic this term is Toys.

We have been learning about old and new toys. We compared toys and investigated the different materials toys are made from.

On Thursday 17th November we had a favourite toy day, we brought in our toys and participated in Show and Tell, sorted the toys, wrote about why they are our favourite toys, drew pictures of them and of course played with them.

As we progress with our topic we hope to design and make our own toys from junk materials.

Soon we will be thinking about writing letters to Santa and asking for some new toys.
