Our Homework

 

At Shire Oak, we encourage creative, project-based homework to allow children to explore wider aspects of a topic and follow their own interests and ideas.

Our Learning

 

 

Topic

Our general topic this term is the history, geography and science led ‘Going on a Journey’ (including learning about the history of transport, about working with maps and about materials and their uses) and you will receive details soon of this half-term’s homework. This will consist of a topic task, some maths activities, spelling and reading.

 

English

Across the term, we will be reading a variety of class books together for pleasure and to inspire our writing. The first class book will be “Journey” by Aaron Becker. Children will have daily phonics lessons alongside whole class reading lessons. In addition, each child will be given a reading book and reading record, which should be sent into school every day. We will listen to them read in school at least once a week and recommend that they read at home with an adult 3-4 times a week for 10 minutes. Please write in your child’s reading record when they have read at home. We will visit the school library weekly where every child will have the opportunity to choose a book, which they can also take home.

 

Maths

In maths this term we will be learning about place value, addition and subtraction within 100 and shape. The times tables that children will be learning this year are 10, 2 and 5 times tables. They will learn to mentally recall all multiplication and division facts for these times tables.

 

P.E.

Our P.E. days this term are Tuesday and Wednesday. Children should bring P.E. kit consisting of: black shorts/tracksuit bottoms, a white or purple t-shirt and trainers/pumps. This should be in a bag which is left in school for the half term.

Please note that Year 2 swimming does not start until after the Easter holidays.
