Reading is a core aspect of the Year Two curriculum. We ask that our children read to an adult at home at least three times each week. Please record your child’s daily reading in their reading diary so that we can see how they are getting on. We welcome volunteers to listen to readers. Please contact your child’s class teacher if you would like to support us with this.
It is important for the children to bring in their reading folder each day in order to keep their books updated and to read to an adult in school.
This term our PE sessions are as follows:
Tuesday is Indoor PE which will be supported by our sports coach.
Wednesday is outdoor PE
Children will require a PE kit for both indoors and outdoors. If possible a tracksuit or jogging bottoms will be useful when we are outdoors. Plimsoles are suitable for indoor PE and if possible trainers are suitable for outdoor PE. If you require further details, please look the uniform section on our website.
The focus for homework for this term is based on key skills including spelling, times tables and mathematical concepts which we will cover in school. We see homework as an extension of this and a way in which you can see how your child is progressing in school. Each child will receive a homework book with further details of the tasks they are required to complete.
Our Church School Value
This term our core value is PERSEVERANCE. Starting a new school year is both exciting and challenging. Children need to show the skill of perseverance in order to rise to these new challenges. By starting the year with this value we hope our children will carry it forward with them throughout their time in Year Two. Our daily worship will reflect our value.
Term One & Two....Street Detectives
This term our topic is 'Street Detectives'. This topic is based on the village of Ruskington and the surrounding area. We are looking forward to exploring the village and finding out about it's past history! We plan on taking a train to Sleaford to compare our village with a small town. Watch this space to keep updated on our learning!
