Ready, Respectful, Safe
A very warm welcome to Year 2! In Year2 we have an inspiring and motivating curriculum with themes covering a term throughout the year. Curricular subjects are taught within the theme so that the curriculum is meaningful and relevant to the children.
Getting in Touch
Due to the need to maintain social distancing I will unfortunately be unable to discuss any matters at the school gate either at the start or end of the day. If there is something that you would like to discuss please don't hesitate to message me through Class Dojo or by telephoning the school directly and I will get back to you as quickly as possible.
This half term, our PE days are a Monday (Class Teacher) and a Friday (Miss Walker). Please make sure your child has the correct kit in school. Children will require indoor and outdoor PE kit this half term, including suitable footwear.
For health and safety reasons children should not be wearing any jewellery to take part in PE or sport, particularly ear rings. These should be removed before coming to school on a PE day.
We want to create children who have a lifelong love of reading, so reading and books have a really high profile in our class. The children are encouraged to read a range of books, and particularly those which they are interested in and motivated by. Your child is always welcome to bring in their own books to recommend to the class.
It is expected that children read four times per week at home, with reading records signed by an adult at home. If children make no attempt to do the homework, it is expected across school that they will stay in during their break time to complete it.
As well as the Year 1 and 2 spelling list, children will continue to follow the RWI spelling scheme. Please see the log book for the rule and words your child needs to practise.
Our homework is sent out on a Friday and should be returned by Thursday. If children make no attempt to do the homework, it is expected across school that they will stay in during their break time to complete it. Each week children will receive a reading homework as well as a maths.
Fluency In Maths
Make sure you are beginning to practice your times tables at home so that you can earn your rewards! Children can practise their times tables skills at home on TT Rockstars. You can also practice your number facts using Numbots.
