A very warm welcome to all our Parents and Carers from all of the Year 2 Team!
Year 2 Team
We are looking forward to having wonderful and fun filled educational experiences with the children. We hope the children are looking forward to the Summer term and all the fun-filled activities ahead. We are really excited to discover what this term has in store for us.
We are aware that there are lots of routines to remember, so a few of those which we feel are useful are detailed below:
PE – Each class will have a P.E session each week:
2Y – Tuesday
2H – Thursday
2J – Tuesday
Please ensure that your child has a named PE kit in school (white t-shirt, blue shorts and black pumps). We ask that hair is tied back and earrings are not worn on your child’s PE days.
Spellings will be given out to the children and they will be tested on Fridays. We will be sending home the children's spelling tests so you can continue to practise any mistakes with your child. You will find the spellings attached below.
Children will be taught different spelling patterns and rules within Phonics and English lessons. Additionally, you can help your children with these spellings as well as the 'common exception words.' These are the words the children are expected to read and spell correctly by the end of year 2. You will also find the end of Key Stage requirements in the National Curriculum.
Children will receive E-learning for their homework. This will start after October half term.
We also expect the children to practise their times tables (2,5 and 10), learn their spellings and read every night.
We will also be sending home the text which the children will be learning in their English lesson for them to familiarise themselves with before writing. They should also know some actions that we have been doing together during the week to help remind them of the different sections.
Your child should have brought home their new reading books. We aim to listen to the children read once a week. Please ensure that they have their reading books in school everyday and that you have commented in their reading diary so that their books can be changed.
In order for us to listen to them read, please ensure that their books are definitely in school for guided reading.
2H - Monday
2Y - Thursday
2J - Friday
Please do not hesitate to contact a member of the Year 2 Team should you have any further questions.
Thank you for your co-operation.
