PE Days

PE Days are Monday and Thursday this year. Please ensure that your child's PE kit is in school on these days and if your child wears earring please make sure they are removed or taped up.

Reading

We love to hear your children read in school and we hope you love to listen to your child read at home. In Year 2 we focus on developing fluency and understanding of what children read, so the more they can read the better. Your child will have a book from the Accelerated Reader scheme, once they have read this they will complete a quiz which asks them questions about what the have read. In addition, your child will have a reading journal and they are encouraged to choose a task to complete as homework about the book they have just read. Your child will have opportunities to read with the whole class and in groups this year but we also aim to hear your child read individually too so please ensure their book bag is in school every day.

Homework

Homework is given out every Friday. We then ask for this to be completed over the weekend and returned on Monday.

Spelling

Your child will bring home a spelling booklet. The booklet sent home are all spellings your child has been learning at school in their spelling lesson. Please encourage your child to learn these spellings using the Look, Cover, Write and Check strategy. We will test your child regularly on these spellings and any patterns they are finding difficult we will highlight so they can continue to practise at home. Once your child has completed the stage they will get a certificate.

Mega Math Mission

Our aim is that by the end of Year 2 your child will know their 2,5, and 10 times tables. We practise these in school regularly and encourage you to do this at home with your child.
