Welcome to Year 2

English –
Throughout our writing lessons we will continue to consolidate our use of punctuation within sentences. We will also be exploring the use of the apostrophe and different conjunction types. We will be continuing to consolidate our use of correct spellings within our writing and we will be learning new spelling patterns throughout the term. Remember to encourage your child to learn their weekly spellings for homework.

Reading – We read in Year 2 EVERY day. This includes through guided reading, phonics activities and also by individual reading. Now that the children are in Year 2, we will also be furthering our reading for understanding and meaning. There will be additional focus on developing our comprehension skills.

Please continue to read with your child at home as often as you can. You can use your child’s reading diary as a method of communication with us about how your child is reading at home. The ‘Reading at home’ sheet is full of ideas of activities and questions that you can ask your child when reading at home. If you would like any help with this please ask a member of our team.

Science – 

P.E – This will be on a Friday afternoon. Please remember to bring your PE kit (black shorts, white t-shirt and black pumps; all named) for each lesson. You can leave your PE kit on your peg if you prefer.

Reminders:

  • Please remember to send your child to school with a water bottle daily.
  • Please can all children bring a coat to school each day as it is starting to get colder.
  • Please can your child bring their reading book to school daily even if it is not their day to read with an adult in school.
  • Homework and spellings will continue to be given out and returned to school on a Friday. Your child will bring their homework home in their folder and their spellings will be stuck into their orange spellings book.
  • Please can children bring their PE kit into school on a Friday. Your child can leave their PE kit on their peg if you would prefer rather than bringing it in weekly.

If you have any questions or queries, please contact the school office to arrange an appointment.
Thank you for your continued support.
