Welcome to Year 2
PE days are Tuesdays and Fridays and children will need their PE kits in school all week.
PE kit should consist of a t-shirt and shorts and a pair of pumps .
Please ensure that your child brings their reading book and reading record book everyday.
Books will be changed on Mondays and Thursdays. Please try to listen to your child reading for at least 5-10 minutes each day.
Sharing a book at bedtime or reading a story to your child will help them develop a love for reading!
Spellings and Phonics
Spelling Tests take place on Fridays and new spellings will be given out on the same day. Words will be stuck/written into the children's spelling books and their test results will also be in these. Please make sure that your child looks after their book and that you check it regularly. Thank you.
Your children will be set 2 pieces of homework weekly. On Tuesdays they will be given a reading comprehension to complete for Thursday and then a second piece of homework will be sent on a Thursday. This will be an online homework on Matheltics or a worksheet. This will need to be completed for the following week.
A homework menu linked to our learning in class will also be sent out at the start of each half term. There will be six activities on this menu. Each activity will be allocated points and you and your child can choose which activities you complete.
We also encourage parents to practise times tables with their children so that they can learn them by reciting them and know them by heart. They should practise x2, x10, x5 and x3.
If you have any questions about Year 2 and the things we do, please come and talk to either Miss Horigan or Mrs Lee or Mrs Logan.
