Welcome to Year 2!
Mrs Walton (Monday & Tuesday)
Mrs Green (Wednesday, Thursday & Friday)Support Staff:
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:
Thursday afternoons athletics and gymnastics
Children will require a PE kit for both indoors and outdoors. Now that the weather has turned a tracksuit or jogging bottoms will be needed when we are outdoors. Plimsoles are suitable for indoor PE. Trainers are preferable for outdoor PE. If you require further details, please look at 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 RESPECT. We will be thinking about ways in which we are respectful to each other and others in our community.
KERPOW! Intergalactic greetings, young heroes, it's time to rescue the planet from evil villains!
This term we will be writing our own superhero stories and then turning them into comic strips and in Maths we will be focusing on place value and using equipment to help us with our learning. Florence Nightingale will be our focus in History finding out about her life and why she was a real life superhero and then in Science we will be using our super senses!
