Year 2 PE day is TUESDAY for both classes. Remember to come into school in your PE kit on Tuesday
Year 2 homework will be set each Wednesday and will be posted on this web page, to be completed by the following Wednesday. There will be no paper homework sent with your child, at least for the time being. The children will typically have spellings and times tables to learn as well as a piece of maths and literacy.
The homework for Y2 will be:
an activity on “My Maths”
Spellings to learn for Wednesday 2nd December:
door wild hold fast bath kind steak half child gold
Times Tables to learn for Wednesday 2nd December: Please practise 3x tables AND 2x tables.
We will ask the questions in a random order so please ensure the children learn them in a non-consecutive order.
This week, your child’s times-tables and spelling results have been uploaded to See-Saw. From Wednesday 7th October, we will only upload photos of your child’s tests if there are errors which they can continue to work on at home. If your child achieves full marks in either test, we will not send you a photo. Of course we will continue to share each child’s results with them individually and celebrate progress they have made.
Year 2 reading books. Children will not be bringing home a physical reading book. Instead, they will be set an E-book to read at home, with questions at the end to discuss with an adult. The children will then read and discuss the same book in school as a guided reading session. They will also be allocated a reading for pleasure book, which will also be set as an E-book.
Reading books will be given out on these days:
Class 6 with Ms Malone will all have their reading books changed each MONDAY.
Class 5 with Miss Wikeley and Mrs Woolnough will have their books changed on a particular day each week. This will depend on the reading group the children are in. By the end of this week the children will all know which group they are in and will have a book to share with you at home!
Monday – Dolphin group will have their books changed
Tuesday – Lions
Wednesdays – Leopards
Thursday – Jaguars and Tigers
Friday – Pandas and Koalas
All children will also be allocated a different genre of reading book from their assigned book band.
Remember, your child has their own, personal, labelled pencil case in school with their own stationery. Please only send in a book for reading for pleasure!
We are currently unable to catch you for a quick chat on the door before and after school. Remember, no news is good news, but if we need to contact you, we will do so via a phone call from the office at another time. Similarly, if you need to get in touch with us, please ring the office as normal and we will get back to you.
Working From Home
Work for the week will be added on seesaw for your child to complete at home if they need to self-isolate.
