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 navy t-shirt and navy 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!
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 1 piece of homework weekly. On Tuesdays they will be given either a reading comprehension or some Maths work. This will be completed in their homework books. These will need to be completed for the Friday.
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 Miss Leena.
Spring 2 text map - Kaa
In English this half term the children will be writing character descriptions. We will be learning a character description about the Jungle Book character Kaa to help us! Here is our text map that we are learning.
Tinga Tinga Art
We looked at the artist Edward Tinga and created our own Tinga Tinga inspired paintings. We used the characters from the Tinga Tinga Tales that we read about in our English lessons.
Look at what we will be doing this half term.
