Keep trying to learn those all important common exception words!


You could:

-  Write them in different colour pens (Rainbow spellings)

-  Put them on post-its and hide them around the house. When you find a word, spell it and win it!

-  Use magnetic letters to spell 5 of the words on the fridge each week

-  Use foam letters in the bath or shower to spell the words, or just use your finger and the bubbles!

-  'Paint' spellings onto pavements or fences in the garden with an old paintbrush and water

-  Paint your spellings onto big sheets of paper

- For those of you who like getting messy, fill a baking tray with shaving foam or a little cornflour and water, and        write your spellings in the mixture.

- Find your spellings in a newspaper or magazine, cut them out and collect them

My Maths Update


Thank you for your patience as we have been setting up this system for Year 2.

In this term (Autumn 1) we have only set  3 pieces of My Maths homework to be completed as part of Homework Bingo. Please encourage children to explore the My Maths Games if they wish to do more.


Next term Autumn 2, there will be considerably more pieces of My Maths to complete as the children will be used to this routine by then.


If you have any problems with My Maths or do not have facilities to log in please let a Year 2 teacher know, we will be happy to help.
