Welcome to Year 2
Teachers: Miss Mensah
Teaching Assistants: Mrs Cooper
If you are interested to find out more about our curriculum then please speak to the class teacher.
Reading – Please try to hear your child read regularly and discuss the book.
Books will be changed on a Monday. They will usually be changed gain during week. The reading scheme is only part of reading and any additional reading that your child does is very important.
Reading Schemes – In Year 2 the children consolidate their phonic knowledge from the letters and sounds programme and then move onto the spelling expectations for Year 2. They have access to several reading schemes. The main ones are: Rigby Star, Storyworlds, Big Cat, Oxford Reading Tree and Project X.
Home Learning - This will be given out on Friday to be returned on Tuesday.
In Year 2 the children enter the school by the playground door at 8.50am and are collected from the Year 2 classroom door at 3.15pm.
Our PE lessons are on Tuesday. The children also have chance to participate in running or walking the daily mile each day. PE kit should be in school every day in case sessions change. Please ensure all uniform is clearly labelled with their name. If your child wears earrings they need to be able to remove them or cover them with tape. Long hair also needs to be tied up.
MID-MORNING SNACKS AND DRINKS
In year 2 fruit and vegetables are provided or the children can bring in a snack to eat at break. This should either be fresh or dried fruit, a cereal bar, a yoghurt tube (e.g. Frubes) or similar finger food (no chocolate or fizzy drinks please). It is useful for the children to have a water bottle in class, so that they can have a drink quickly, particularly when the weather is hot.
