• There is a list of the 100 HFWs and 200 common words in the front of each child’s homework book to be learnt over the course of the year.
• Spelling Test is on Tuesdays.
• After the test, children will be given their new spellings to learn for the following Tuesday.
• Sometimes spellings will be practised in class but will still need to be learnt at home. Spellings will often be linked to their phonics work.
• Children are also asked to complete spelling sentences as part of their homework.
• Homework will be given on a Friday . It may be Numeracy, Literacy or Topic related.
• Sometimes children will be asked to find things out or bring things in from home.

• As a school we are now implementing the new curriculum.
• Children will be assessed throughout the year by teachers at the end of a unit of work
• Year 2 sit tests during Summer term. This forms part of our assessment.
KS1 Curriculum & Testing
New Assessmentso Attainment Steps are now used to describe children’s attainment in maths, reading, writing and SPaG (spelling, punctuation & grammar). o The steps are organised in the same way that the new curriculum is, so that they provide expectations for each stage of attainment (e.g. a typical Y2 would be at step 21 by the end of the year).o Just as before each class will have children at lots of different steps (e.g. Y2 children will not all be at a Y2 stage of attainment between steps 19-21).o The new curriculum is harder so children are likely to start lower down the scale.

Numeracy• Children are in two groups for numeracy. • Miss Dyke teaches higher numeracy.• Miss Booth teaches the lower numeracy group. • The majority of the children are working at the same level but
grouped according to confidence.
Big MathsIt is a daily sequential programme of mental maths provision, with a strong emphasis on learned facts and developing the
mental agility to do something with these facts.
It develops core skills in one clear method. All are taught in the same way, repeatedly, to embed these fundamental skills.
Big Maths highlights how small steps of progress with core numeracy follow on logically from one to the next.
Big MathsBig Maths is based upon the principle that there are 4 core skills that lie at the heart of numeracy.
These core skills form the platform for virtually all other maths skills and are affectionately known as CLIC ….
It’s Nothing NewCalculations
Big Maths Beat That – On Mondays, year 2 will sit a timed challenge where children answer ‘Learn Its’ questions. The aim is to beat their previous score.
