Year 2 Routines


PE is now timetabled for Tuesday afternoons and Thursday afternoons.  Please ensure your child has their named PE kit in school every day.  PE kits will be sent home for laundering at the end of each half term.

Water Bottles

Water is available and accessible to children throughout the day.  Please ensure your child brings in a named bottle of water.  It will be returned to you at the end of each school day, in order to ensure high levels of hygiene.

 Year 2 Homework Routine


Spelling lists will be issued on a Friday.  Please practise them with your child, using the ‘Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check’ strategy.

Spellings will be assessed the following Friday.

Homework Task

On Fridays, the children will be set a weekly task, linked to their Maths, English or Topic work.  Please ensure that it is returned to school by the following Wednesday, so that it can be marked and new homework task prepared.  Some of the tasks will be completed on a sheet, others in the Homework Book.


Please read regularly with your child.  At Westwood, we aim to read with your child at least twice a week.  We ask that you read a further three times at home.  In Year 2 it is important to ensure that we develop comprehension skills.  Asking your child questions about what they have read will help you to gauge how much they have understood.


Thank you for your continued support,

Miss Capper and Mrs Donohue
