Our transition letter stated that our PE days were Wednesday and Thursday however subject to playground schedules we have changed this to Tuesday and Thursday. We will post all relevant information for Year 2 pupils to this page, however if your child is absent from school for an extended time, a more detailed curriculum will be available on the Year 2 Online Learning page. For example, if your child is not in school due to isolation/quarantine, please see our Year 2 Online Learning Page. We will only be populating this page if we are made aware of a Year 2 child/children isolating at home.
We are planning a pirate day for your children on Tuesday 20th October 2020. We hope it will be an enjoyable end to our topic. We ask if you can send them in dressed as a pirate for this day- anything scruffy will do! The day will be filled with many curriculum enhancing activities and lots of pirate fun!
In Year 2, our spelling tests take place on a Friday morning. Any help you can give your child to support them with learning their spellings would be greatly appreciated. Do email your child's teacher if you need clarification as to which group your child is in. We will update this page every Friday with the spellings to learn ready for the following week.
We have also sent a blue common exception words card home. All children need to learn Year 1 and 2 words on this card. They should be able to read and spell the words and apply them in their writing.

We have sent home your child's TT Rockstars code for use on the app. Each child has an individual code that is for their personal use only. If you have not received this, please contact your child's class teacher. We have began by setting all children the10x table. Once they have become fluent with their 10x table, they will sit a 3 minute test whereby we can assess their fluency before moving on with 5x and 2x tables and beyond. We really appreciate your support helping your children practise their timetables as they are such an important and transferrable mathematical skill.
Reading IncentivesWe are developing a love of reading in Year 2 using a range of strategies and incentives. We have established a reading challenge in class whereby your children receive rewards for reading at home. They move up the zone board 5x before receiving a reward. We will be celebrating children that complete the zone board 5x with a reading certificate. Thank you for the time that you dedicate to reading at home. Reading frequently has a huge impact on your child's literacy and progress in class. We aim to change spot books daily if your child has read them. Library books are changed every Friday. Please aim to read the library book throughout the week so that the child can benefit from the routine of changing their library book. We hope they enjoy the range of texts that the library has to offer and we will encourage them to select from a wide variety of genres. Happy reading!
