Welcome to Year 2!
In Year 2 we all have a passion for learning. We are curious learners and are eager to gain more knowledge. Whilst teaching the curriculum, children will enagage with a variety of skills that they already have, whilst developing new skills that they need to learn in Year 2.
Please make sure you have signed up to class dojo. This is where I will be posting information and pictures from each week. Any notices regarding chancing to school routines will also go on here. Incase of another school closure I will post home learning and pictures on class dojo as well.
We currently have PE on a Wednesday. Due to the current situation children are required to come to school in PE kit on this day.
Our school PE kit consists of a white t-shirt, black shorts and plimsoles.
During the colder seasons children can wear jogging bottoms and jumpers.
Please ensure that all PE kits are labelled with your child's name.
Reading books and Reading Records must also be in school on a daily basis. As we are striving towards children having a passion for reading, we encourage you all to hear your child read on daily basis and to please sign their Reading Record. We want to ensure that children are reading a variety of different genres to expand their knowledge and understanding about the world. Children will bring home a book from our class library, which they will independently choose book that relates to their PM Benchmark level.
Children are expected to complete one piece of home learning every week from the home learning grid.
The home learning grid is stuck in their home learning books (they are also on our class page, below). Children have a choice of what piece of home learning they want to complete. Home learning is given out on a Friday and should be handed in on Wednesday. Helping and supporting your child with their home learning will encourage them to engage with their learning outside of the classroom, which will increase their curiosity.
Spellings are also a part of home learning and you will receive a spelling list at the start of each half term for that half term. I will also post the spelling weekly on Class Dojo. Every Friday the children will complete a spelling test and a new set of spellings will be taught the following Monday.
