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. 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 COMPASSION. We will be thinking about ways in which we are compassionate to each other and others in our community. This will be especially important as we pause for Remembrance Day and in our lead up to Christmas. 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. During Term One we used globes, maps and aerial photographs to help us understand where Ruskington is in the world. We enjoyed a number of visits into the village to carry out land use surveys and to investigate a rather full beck!
In Term Two we will be travelling by train to Sleaford. We will compare Ruskington to Sleaford and visit some important buildings in the town. We will be learning about the history of Ruskington and what it was like to live here in the past. In our DT lessons we will designing and making houses.
