Part 3: Work Expectations.

By the end of Year 2, we hope the children will be able to join all of their letters neatly on the line.
At this point in year 2, some children are doing pre-cursive handwriting. They are able to form the letters correctly, but not yet able to join.

At Meadlands, we expect the children to take great pride and care with all their written work. At the start of the year, a maths lesson is dedicated to the reminding the children how to set out their math's work, so that the layout is consistent across the year group. Our expectations around layout is:


1. All maths work completed in pencil, or purple pen for responding to marking or completing reasoning and problem solving work.

2. A digit per maths square – we say to the children “one digit one square” to remind them.

3. Any written work in their maths book e.g. learning challenge or word problems should be as neat as they would write in any other book.

Part 4: Blended Learning 

If your child is absent but waiting for a coronavirus test result to return to school or having to self isolate due to symptomatic household members, then they can access school work on their class page right here! Work will be uploaded every Monday morning. Children are expected to follow the timetable and complete the lessons in their Meadlands-at-Home books, returning these to their class teacher, once they are able to return to school.

If the class or school is having to isolate we will be in touch with you regarding how to access the Google Classroom learning.

For more information, please refer to our Blended Learning Policy.
