Welcome to Year 2!
These are the adults who help us with our learning.
Teaching Staff - Miss Smith (Key Stage 1 Leader) and Miss Baker
Teaching Assistants - Mrs Gilchrist and Mrs Buckle
Our 2019 Spring Term Welcome Wednesdays are 6th February and 6th March. We hope to see lots of you there!
Library Books will be changed every other Wednesday.
Spellings are tested on a Monday and new spellings given out on the Tuesday.
Home learning is due back into school on a Thursday. Please ensure your child brings their home learning book back each week so that we can check which task they have completed. We will send home learning books back out on a Friday.
We have loved our 'Weather' topic this half term. We have learnt so much about seasons and different weather patterns. We have also had great fun in Science creating our own cloud in a jar and learning how to make different shadows. Also, in DT we designed and made our own kites and enjoyed testing them out!
How can you help your child at home?
Reading at home
How can you help your child with reading at home?
We hope that you are able to read with your child as regularly as possible and record any comments in their yellow log. Also encouraging your child to read at least four times a week to take part in our reading challenge competition!
Maths at home
In Year 2 we spend time practising addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and missing number problems. At home you could support your child by giving them various calculation sentences. Find an example of arithmetic papers on our home learning page. This is what your child will practise in school.
By the end of Year 2 we aim for children to be secure with their 2x, 5x and 10x tables. You could use these websites below to practise these.
You could also use mathletics to practise all other areas of maths!
We build on the phonics learning your child has learnt in Year 1. You could use the websites below to practise their phonemes.
Welcome back! We are excited to begin a new year.
