  • This term we are learning about…

     

  • Homework

    In Year 2 the expectation for homework is that children are to read their reading books every night. As well as this we would like your children to also practice their spellings on a daily basis. 

    We would also like your children to practice their times tables as this is a very important part of Year 2. There is a link to our Times Tables Rockstar site and Spelling Shed on this page and the login has been sent home with your child.

    Please speak to Miss Tailford if you have any questions about this. 

     

  • Spelling

    Spellings will be sent home weekly and these will be the common exception words for Year 2 or words with a common spelling pattern.

      Please encourage your children to practise these at home regularly.

  • Reading

    Please try and read every night at home with your children and sign their reading records to ensure they receive their reading awards.

    Reading books will be changed on a weekly basis.

      Please ensure your children have their reading books in school everyday.

    .

  • P.E.

    We have P.E on Wednesdays and Fridays.

    Please ensure your child has a full P.E kit in school.

    A full P.E kit should include a white T-shirt, black shorts and either black P.E shoes or trainers.

    Trainers are required during the summer term for outdoor P.E.
