# P2 Homework W/B 25.9.17

Hi everyone,

Here is the homework list for the week ahead:

Spelling – List 5 ” qu” . The homework handed in so far shows a lot of hard work taking place at home; thank you and well done!

Reading – Please continue to refer to the post-it notes in each book.

Numeracy – P2 seem to love numeracy ( that’s what they tell me anyway!) This week, we’ll practise +3/-3 and so, on Wednesday, a new sheet of cards for you to cut up and use as flash cards will be sent home.

Each Monday we focus on money ( Money Monday) and so any chance at home for your child to count up pennies is invaluable. ( 1p, 2p, 5p and 10p will suffice just now). Children love to play shops and so this is another way to encourage them. A shop doesn’t have to be anything ‘fancy’ – even just a few empty cartons from your cupboards with prices on ( start with under 10p prices) can give lots of fun practice.

Every Friday we focus on fractions ( Fraction Friday!) Children do find this a tricky concept so am just focussing on halves and quarters and this week, we’ll look at sharing out items equally between 2 and 4 people. Any opportunity you have to reinforce this at home, say in playing games, would be very helpful.

TopicHarvest – a letter will be coming home soon about an appeal for food donations P1 and P2 are going to make.

PE – Wednesday and Thursday. However, our school is gearing up to start The Daily Mile Challenge and so, P2 will soon be getting out and about, building up to walking and running a mile ( most days). This will not happen on PE days.

Toys– I notice that children keep bringing in toys to school. I would encourage children not to bring any toys in as these can get lost, damaged and can be distracting for the children. I don’t mind children bringing in small toys for Golden Time on a Friday but recently, some toys have been rather large and take up a lot of safe storage space!
