We made these additional resources for you to download and to complete with your child, to supplement the Year 2 curriculum.
In addition to the homework provided, the following resources are offered to parents in order to:
help them gain an insight into the nature and content of some of the key areas of Literacy and Numeracy taught during Year 2.
provide them with a resource bank of materials, to support additional work that may take place at home.
Although explanatory notes are given, it is always important to talk to Class Teachers to get information about learning taking place, progress and advice on how to support children individually.
Sentence Level Work:
These activities, linked to ‘good quality’ children’s books, help children to improve different aspects of sentence content. In doing so, children start thinking in terms of ‘super sentences’! Click here for a ‘prompt sheet’ of all the different Level 2/3 sentence level aspects taught during Year 2 Reading and Spelling Workshop lessons.
Developing children’s ability to understand what’s happening within a text (i.e. to read “beyond the literal” and infer meaning) is just as important as teaching them how to spell words correctly. The below comprehensions give you examples of this. We’ve grouped them according to National Curriculum Levels.
‘Level 2 & 3′-style Maths Questions:
Although presented here as ‘test’-style questions, the below examples will help give you some indication of the range and depth of Maths subjects taught within a Year 2 classroom. They will help you correctly ‘pitch’ similar activities which you might devise when working with your child at home.
