Welcome to Year 2! 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 DAYS: MONDAY & WEDNESDAY
Please note that children need to come into school in their PE kit on a day when they have PE.
Homework will be sent home each Friday to be returned the following Friday.
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. These will be tested each Friday. Any questions please ask your child's class teacher. Children should access Spelling Shed to support their learning.
Reading: We are keen to encourage children to continue their love of reading and we focus on improving their fluency in reading throughout Year 2. Please read at least three times per week at home and log this on the Boom Reader 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.
English Text: The Secret of Black Rock by
Maths: Place Value
Geography: Marvellous Maps
In addition to the daily maths lessons, children also complete a daily maths blast. KIRFS (key instant recall facts) such as multiplication tables and addition facts are learnt to automaticity to avoid cognitive overload in the working memory and enable pupils to focus on new concepts. The KIRFS documents provide an overview of each focus, and contain ideas about how parents can support their children with this at home.
