Autumn (term 1) homework – Year 2

Homework will be posted on the blog every half term showing you the day it will be discussed with the children. Each task will relate to an objective covered during the week.


Please encourage children to form letters and numbers correctly especially starting positions for each letter and number. In class we have talked about correct writing positions and how to hold our pencil.


In addition to this there will be a mental maths challenge each week.


Friday 6th October 2017: In maths we have been looking at capacity using non-standard and standard units of measure (rice, ml, l). Find different containers in your home and measure how much water they can hold. You can measure using cups of water or standard measures (ml, l).

Mental maths challenge: Number bonds to 10/20 i.e. 8 + 2 = 10, 20 = 15 + 5



Friday 13th October 2017: In place and time we have been looking at different symbols that can be used on a map. Create your own map of a room in your home.

Mental maths challenge: Counting forwards and backwards from numbers 0-100. Start the children at any number and encourage them to count backwards and forwards in ones. Can they do the same counting in 10s?


Please hand homework books in week beginning Monday 16th October 2017.
