Welcome to Year 2
Mrs Jarvis, Mrs Norman-Ball, Mrs Whitley and Mrs Plant welcome you to a fun packed year! On this page you will find regular updates about what we have been up to both in and out of class, termly topic information and weekly routines.
Your child should have their reading book and reading record in school every day. There will be opportunities for your child's book to be changed on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Our focus will be on comprehension this year. Please try to hear your child read little and often, asking them questions about what they have read and what they predict will happen next.
Spellings will be allocated dependent on your child's phonics phase, and then focusing on the Year 2 Common exception words. Tests will be done on a Monday, with spellings given out for the following week. Please ensure your child has their blue spelling book in school on this day.
Homework will be given out on alternate Fridays and the children will have almost two weeks to complete their chosen activities. There will be a range of tasks available to complete, some practical, some written and some online. Please let me know if there are any issues logging onto MyMaths.
PE days will vary throughout the year so please make sure your child's PE kit is in school all week. We will be taking part in activities both indoors and out, so please make sure they have T-Shirt, shorts, plimsolls or trainers, and tracksuit bottoms if needed.
If you have any further questions please feel free to catch us in the playground at the start or end of the day, or alternatively make an appointment through the reception staff.
