Your child will be given homework for reading and spelling.
As reading homework, your son or daughter will be assigned a Guided Reading book and a book on Bug Club. Reading is an important skill because it helps the children to develop a wide range of vocabulary and it encourages them to broaden their imagination.
Spelling has become a big focus in the National Curriculum. For this reason, we teach the children spelling in school everyday and send spellings home for the children to learn. In year 2, the children are tested on their spellings each Friday.
