Hornchurch Academy Trust



Year 1

Year 2

Year 2 children will bring home an English and Maths homework book that provides activities to consolidate and embed the Year 2 curriculum covered in school.  Each book is broken down into three terms, Autumn, Spring and Summer and each term has 12 ‘workouts’ to complete.  

Autumn Term Workouts 1-7 are appropriate for Term 1.

Autumn Term Workouts 8-12 are appropriate for Term 2.

Spring Term Workouts 1-7 are appropriate for Term 3.

Spring Term Workouts 8-12 are appropriate for Term 4.

Summer Term Workouts 1-7 are appropriate for Term 5.

Summer Term Workouts 8-12 are appropriate for Term 6.

The workouts may be completed at a pace to suit your child and they are not expected to be completed independently.  They may choose to do a few questions each week or complete a whole workout.  

The Maths and English books will be sent home on alternate weeks on Fridays and should be returned to school on Tuesdays.

Spellings are also sent home and are stuck in your child’s reading record book on a Monday. The spellings will be common words the children will be reading and writing frequently in Year 2. We will practise these spellings each week in class and we encourage the children to practise them at home too. There will be no test on the spelling words. 

Reading books are sent home each week.  Reading for pleasure books will be changed and sent home on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.  These books are for you and your child to enjoy sharing together and are not expected to be read independently by your child.  These books will vary in complexity and will give you and your child time to discuss different parts of the books.  Your child will also bring home a Read Write Inc phonics book to read with you at home on Thursdays.  This will be a copy of the phonics reading book they will have been reading at school during their phonics and reading lessons.  Your child will have read this story three times with their reading teacher before bringing it home, so your child should be able to read the story confidently.  Books can also be accessed on Bug Club at your child’s reading level.   

Please do not hesitate to contact any member of the Year 2 team if you have any questions.
