RIDGEWAY Primary School

Year 2 - Homework

 Reading 4 x 10 minutes per week - this will be set on Bug Club as we are unable to send home book bags at the current time. It will be a mixture of phonics books working on the sound we are covering in class that week and levelled books. We would also encourage any reading of books from home to develop skills and a love of reading. Please remember rereading books from the Bug Club library is also recapping important phonics learning from previous weeks.

Spellings these will be set on a Friday and tested the following Friday starting on 25th Sept

Times Tables Doodle Tables  (part of the Doodle Maths family of APPs please download)

Additional task set on Seesaw each week on Mondays to be completed by the following Monday - this will be labelled homework.  Please don't complete other work on Seesaw which is class work unless its for Blended Learning or if there is any outstanding learning from the previous week. We will date all work set from now on

Any questions please email
