Homework Feedback - Children will receive feedback on their homework each Friday. Your child will then write down their improvement target on the handed-in piece of work. Please can you discuss these next steps with your child and work on this target in their next piece of writing.
Writing Homework 7th May - Journey into Space
After parent's evening last week some parents said they find it challenging to get their child to practise writing at home. With this in mind the Year 2 team have decided to set writing homework each week to provide children with an opportunity to focus on their next steps in their writing.
Task Imagine you are an astronaut travelling into space. Sit in a quiet comfortable spot ready to discuss your writing. Print out the support sheets below to help generate your ideas. Support your child with writing by orally rehearsing each sentence before writing it down. Use the common exception word bank to help your child spell tricky words in their writing. Encourage your child to re-read their writing to 'edit and improve'. Have you remembered all capital letters and full stops? Have you remembered finger spaces? Can you extend your sentences using 'and', 'but', 'because'. Use the questions below to guide your writing.
How do you feel as you wait to launch off inside your rocket?
How does your space suit feel?
As you launch into space What can you see?
What is the planet like that you land on?
How would you describe the alien you meet?
How does your story end what happens?
