We would like the children to explore art work on the theme of plants by any artist and in any medium. 

Try google images and videos on the Tate Gallery website for ideas, including Georgia O'Keeffe, Monet, Van Gogh etc. Once your child has been inspired then you could ask them to create their own piece of art work or to try to recreate another artist's artwork. This could be in any medium e.g. sketched in pencil, pastels, paint, collage, clay or even textiles! 

This is a wonderful chance for your child to find out about a range of artists and to have some fun being creative with you at home.

This homework is due in on Monday 1st April.

Please do not to hesitate to speak to your class teacher if you need any help.

Reminders
 
Reading
 is so important to help children with all areas of the curriculum.  Please read at home with your child 5 times each week and send your child's reading diary into school with them every day.


Maths 
During Year 2 the children need to be able to learn and rapidly recall the 2, 5, 10 and 3 times tables.  There are lots of fun games to help them learn these online times tables books and old fashioned learning by rote is also very valuable.  A trophy has been donated to the school and will be handed out each week to children who are showing that they are learning their tables.

Spellings
 are sent home on Friday afternoons to be learnt at home for testing in school the following Friday.  Please use the space in their book to practise as well as using phonics games online where possible.  

Bug Club
 can be used by the children in school or at home.  They can read these as part of the reading challenge.



Handwriting

Please continue to practise the correct letter formation for all lower case and upper cse letters in the alphabet. We have also begun to learn to join some digraphs e.g. ch, sh, th, er, ir, ur, oo, ou, ow etc.

Spellings:

Here are the spellings for this term which you will also find stuck in your child's blue spelling book. The date below is a week beginning date, therefore these should be learnt that week. Please remember to learn these using a range of strategies e.g. rainbow writing, pyramid writing and look, say, cover, write, check. These spellings link to our English curriculum objectives and are also learnt in class.
