Welcome back Year 2  

We hope that you have enjoyed the summer holidays and are excited to be back in school for your first term in year 2! We have lots of exciting things planned this term and we're really looking forward to getting to know you all.

 

This term our topic is 'Changes Within Living Memory'. We will be looking at how toys, household items, music and food has changed since the 1930s. We will also be learning about continents and oceans in Geogrpahy and investigating different materials in Sciene.

 

Who works with us in year 2?

In year 2 we have lots of people that help with the children's learning. Miss Simms is the class teacher in 2S and Miss Watts also works with us. Next door we have Mr Hazeldine who teaches 2H and Mrs Wilkinson who also works with 2H.

 

PE kits

The children need to have a PE kit in school at the start of each half term. This should include indoor and outdoor clothes. PE kits can remain in school and will be sent home at the end of the half term to be washed. PE lessons take place on Tuesdays with Mr Hazeldine and Wednesdays with Mr Jones.

 

Water bottles

Every child has access to fresh drinking water throughout the day. Please ensure that your son or daughter has a water bottle in school. This will be sent home every Friday to be washed and refilled with water for Monday.

 

Book bags

Your child needs to have their book bag in school everyday.  They will change their reading books every week on a specific day when they have guided reading.  Regular reading at home will ensure that your child makes good progress. Each week your child will have a 'Reading Focus' stuck into their diary. These contain suggestions to help you develop you child's comprehension skills.

 

Spellings

In Year 2 the children will have spellings to learn.  New words are sent home every Tuesday in the children's home school diaries and the children will have a spelling test on the following Monday. 

 

SATs

At the of KS1, year 2 children are required to sit the SATs tests. These have to be done during May. We would encourage you not to book any holidays during May (unless they are in the May half term). The SATs are done as informally as possible and we don't tend to tell the children they are taking SATs. Instead, we refer to any assessments in year 2 as 'quizzes'. This helps the children to feel more relaxed. We will do a range of 'quizzes' through out the year so as the children are familiar with the format and feel at ease when they are taking the SATs in May.

 

Autumn term homework

The Autumn Term homework grid has now been uplaoded to our website page under the tab 'Homework'. There is also one in your child's diary. The children need to complete enough homework in the term to gain 12 points.  There will be a homework exhibition at the end of the term and an opportunity for you to view the pieces of work completed by the classes. The dates for the submission of homework and the exhibition are on the homework grid and on the school calendar.

 

Thank you for your support.

Miss Simms and Miss Watts
