We are excited to welcome Year 2 back to school! On this page you will find information detailing what your child will be learning this year along with useful information and updates.
Please continue to use ClassDoJo to contact staff and keep up to date with exciting opportunities and experiences. Our Year 2 team are always happy to help, so please ask if you have any questions.
PE DAY: TUESDAY & WEDNESDAY
Please note that children need to come into school in their PE kit on a day when they have PE.
Homework is an important part of a child's learning. It helps to consolidate what is being taught and promotes independence and organisation. We appreciate your support in ensuring your child's homework tasks are completed.
Spelling: Parents should make sure they check their child's book bag for weekly spellings. Any questions please ask your child's class teacher. Children should access Spelling Shed to support their learning.
Reading: Please read at least three times per week at home and log this on the Go Read app. Reading at home will be checked every Monday and reading books will be changed each Friday. Reading books must be in school every day.
Reading books must be read twice before they will be changed as children must be able to read them fluently and also be able to talk about what they have read.
Phonics: Parents should support their children to use their phonics knowledge when reading and practise reading the sounds daily using the phonics mat below.
The children in Year 2 will be focussing on revisiting previously taught knowledge and skills in English and Maths as we work toward the statutory assessments that will be completed during this half term.
We will be ensuring that the full range of other subjects continue to be taught during this time and we look forward to covering the following topics:
Science: How do plants grow?
Computing: Data and Information
Music: Superhero music
