Welcome to Year 2! 

Mrs Clayton, Mrs Jones and myself (Miss Hickson) would like to welcome you to our class page.

Here, you will find some useful information about Year 2.

 

Communication

To keep updated with what your child is doing in school, make sure that you join Class Dojo. It is a fantastic tool which allows you to keep track of your child's behaviour as well as what they have been learning each day. Each day, I will communicate through our Class Story what the children have been learning about. You will also be able to see how many Class Dojo points your child receives each day. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me through the private messaging service that Class Dojo provides.

 

Reading

In Year 2, it is extremely important that your child reads regularly at home. Children must be read with by an adult at home at least 3 times a week. Dojo points will be awarded for children who read regularly at home. Please record any reading that takes place in their diary to show what they have read. Children are also encouraged to write comments in their reading diary to show whether or not they enjoyed the book.

It is also vital that children understand the books they are reading so please ask your child questions about the text and encourage them to answer questions carefully using the text to help them. This skill will also be practised in weekly Guided Reading sessions in school, which your child will participate in. Your child's reading diary will be stamped when they have completed a Guided Reading session.

Reading books will be changed every Friday. If your child has completed their reading books before Friday, please make sure that they have done lots of comprehension work around the book. Children are then encouraged to read other books that they may have at home. They may like to read other genres of writing such as magazines or comics. 

 

English

Each half term, your child will be studying a high quality text. Within their English lessons, they will develop their understanding of grammar, punctuation and spelling.  You can keep up to date with our learning on the Class Dojo page.

 

Spelling

Spellings will be given out every Friday. The spellings will be put on our Class Story but children will also be provided with a paper copy of their spellings to help them with their learning. Please help your child to learn their spellings using the 'Look, Cover, Write, Check' method. Children are expected to score 7/10 or 3/5 each week. If they score below this, children will be re-tested. Your child's spelling test score will be given out each Friday alongside their new spellings. 

 

Maths

You can also keep up to date with our Maths learning on the Class Dojo page. Your child may sometimes be given activities to complete through Active Learn which will help them to practise key skills taught in the week. 

 

PE

Please make sure that your child has a full PE kit in school each week. Our PE sessions will take place every Tuesday afternoon with Mr Biggs and Friday morning with Mrs Sharples.

 

Topic

Each term, the children will be learning about different topics. Here are the Year 2 topics for this academic year: 

Autumn: How have people like Rosa Parks helped to make the world a better place?

Spring: What do we know about the Victorians and the way they lived?

Summer: Where would you prefer to live: England or Kenya?
