Year 2

Welcome to Year 2!

Welcome back to school and the year 2 page.

Parental Information

Physical Education

Depending on which class you are in, PE is taught on either a Monday or Friday.

2J – Monday

2K  – Friday

2L – Friday

PE Kits

Black/blue/grey shorts or leggings

White t-shirt

Dark sweatshirt for outdoor PE

Pumps or trainers – children cannot participate in PE with bare feet.

We endeavour to conduct most of our PE lessons outside, unless the weather is poor. Children may wear black/blue/grey jogging bottoms during these lessons, if they so wish.

Reading

Reading is to the mind, what exercise is to the body. Across the world, the children who read the most, read the best. Around half of illiterate adults live in poverty; they are less likely to find employment.

The teachers in Year 2 expect children to read for at least 10 minutes a day and to get their homework diary signed after each read. If this is done, and brought into school, each child will receive a tick on the class ‘Raving Reader’ chart which will gain them prizes! The more they read, the better the prizes!

The children also have many fantastic interactive books to read on Bug Club. Teachers assign children books to read and answer questions on. Each class has a competition to see who can read the most each month as well as the whole school leader board in the hall.

Can you read the most books and be on one of the leader boards?

Homework

In Year 2, children will receive their homework on a prepared sheet each Friday. Children will receive topic, maths and SPaG homework each week.

SPaG homework will usually include ten spellings which they are taught on a Monday to  Friday. The children will be expected to use some of the different strategies which we teach to help them learn the spellings, ready for their test the following Friday .

Maths homework is set on the website My Maths (if you are using a tablet, you can download the app ‘Puffin academy’).

Topic homework could be an array of different activities based around the IPC topic at the time. The homework set for Topic may have a different completion date! Please be aware.
