Important information

Homework

Homework will consist of weekly tasks reflecting and consolidating the class teaching from the week.  This will consist of:

  • a short phonics task based on the phonics pattern learnt during the week
  • ongoing learning of the Year Two exception words,
  • a short maths or English task consolidating the week’s learning
  • an optional more open ended task to discuss and investigate with your child
  • In addition it is expected that children read for at least 15 minutes a day outside school hours.  This could be alone or with an adult. 

Homework will be set on a Friday and should be returned by the following Thursday.  A spelling test of 5 words containing the phonics spelling pattern learnt on the previous week and 5 Year Two exception words will take place each Friday.

 

General information

  • P.E. kits, book bags, reading books and home-school diaries will be needed in school every day.
  • Please remember to provide your child with a hat and sun cream / warm waterproof coat depending on the season.
  • As always, it is important to name label all of your child’s belongings clearly.

 

Year 2 Information

  • A labelled drink bottle for WATER should be brought to school each day.
  • Your child will bring home a reading book to read with an adult at home. We  encourage them to record the title in their home-school diary but please help your child with this if needed.  Your child’s reading ability is assessed regularly the  their book band level might change.
  • Children have the opportunity to change their book every day.
  • Children will work in ability groups for English, Maths and reading.  These groups will be adjusted when necessary depending on each child’s work and progress.
  • PE lessons will take place on Mondays (outdoors) and Thursdays (indoors)
  • We love to hear about important events or occasions in the children's lives. We set aside a short amount of 'show and tell time' once a week. This is the weekly opportunity to share with the class or bring is special things to show.
  • Children take part in various guided group activities with their teacher or teaching assistant each week.  The class teacher will write a progress comment in your child's diary relating to the work they have done together.
  • Every Monday, you will be emailed a Year Two weekly newsletter outlining the curriculum for the week.  This letter will also be available on the website.
  • Please ensure that important information is communicated to school using the home-school diary. For example, if somebody else is collecting your child from school or your child will be late due to a medical appointment, etc.
